What is Yoga Alliance?
Established in the late 90s, Yoga Alliance is one of the most recognized Yoga organizations worldwide for its association of Yoga Schools and Teachers. It is registered as a non-profit organization under the US federal laws to work as a registry of Yoga schools and Teachers. They went on setting up a minimum standard criteria for a Yoga school or a Teacher to have international credentials. The idea was to bring some sort of norms in Yoga teaching & learning at the same time to protect the rights of Yoga professionals.
Yoga Alliance - How does it work ?
Instead of having its own training centre, Yoga Alliance sets the educational training parameters to recommend Yoga Schools or Teachers to make sure adequate amounts of study and instructions have been made to manifest a better & improved Yoga Community.

There are three major designations promoted by Yoga Alliance, each of them have to fulfill certain parameters set by Yoga Alliance to be able to have the registry mark.
- Registered Yoga Schools (RYS®)
