World Yoga Alliance is an International Board for Yoga Education.
World Yoga Alliance has been created to promote and support yoga community, and to maintain high and consistent yoga education quality and standards worldwide. Our main objective is to spread the authentic yoga principles and practice all around the world so that all our members and teachers are provided with necessary skills, knowledge, and guidance to teach yoga and follow healthy yogic lifestyle.
Our vision is to build a worldwide network of yoga teachers and schools by providing an opportunity to join an International Registry of Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT) and Registered Yoga Schools (RYS), as well as Certified Yoga Teachers (CYT) and Certified Yoga Schools (CYS). In order to fulfill our yoga and health educational mission, we host a lot of yoga business conferences, seminars, and workshops throughout the year in all our divisions around the world. Our Registered Members receive various discounts on events and courses organized by the WYA, and all our Certified Members receive free ongoing educational support and have a chance to attend workshops, seminars, and conferences. We provide topics and materials to support the continuous education of our yoga teachers, schools, institutions, and studios.
All those who successfully complete the Yoga Teacher Training with any ‘World Yoga Alliance’ Affiliated School or Division are given the official WYA Certificate for Students. Any Diploma certified by WYA gives you multiple opportunities and benefits with our organization, as the highest educational standards are our priority. Each certified graduate will be provided with a unique ID Number, allowing for free continuous training with our Divisions within the next 2 years (after you successfully complete your training with World Yoga Alliance and receive your Certificate).
