FAQs

Are your Yoga Teacher Training Programs approved by the Yoga Alliance?

Yes. You will be eligible to submit your paperwork to the Yoga Alliance to be approved as an RYT (registered yoga teacher) at the 200 hour level.

What is the Yoga Alliance?

The Yoga Alliance is a credentialing organization established in 1999 which sets standards for yoga teachers and yoga teacher trainings. It is not required by law to be approved by the Yoga Alliance in order to teach yoga, but many studios and potential employers look for this registration mark.

Will I be qualified to teach once I complete your Yoga Teacher Training Certification Program?

Yes. In the 200 hour Art of Yoga Training Program we focus on how to teach as much as on mastering the material. After graduating at the 200 hour level you will be eligible to submit your paperwork to the Yoga Alliance to be approved as an RYT (registered yoga teacher) at the 200 hour level.
