What are the Yoga Alliance Requirements for Continuing Education?

Yoga Alliance recently updated the requirements for all Registered Yoga Teachers (RYTs) to include the following:

Every three years starting from initial date of registration, all RYTs - including Experienced Registered Yoga Teachers - must complete and log a minimum of:

  • 45 hours teaching yoga, and
  • 30 hours of yoga related training that is directly related to one of Yoga Alliance's Educational Categories, of which:
    • At least 10 training hours must be Contact Hours.
    • No more than 20 training hours may be Non-Contact Hours.
  • Teaching or training hours prior to registration do not count as Continuing Education.
  • Continuing Education must be provided by a registered Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider (YACEP).

Yoga Alliance also notes that if you earn more than the required hours in a three-year period, the extra hours may not rollover into the next three-year period.

Please refer to the Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Requirements site for specifics on receiving credit for participation.
