Yoga Alliance Certification

 

How to become a Yoga Instructor is a question we frequently get asked. The first step is to know about Yoga Alliance Certification which is the largest yoga credentialing agency in the US. Yoga Alliance Certification is required by most YMCA’s, gyms and  private yoga studios to teach yoga. Upon completion of class, each  student gets a signed certificate of completion which is required to sign up and become listed on the Yoga Alliance Registry as a RYT or Registered Yoga Teacher.
