What does RYT mean?

RYT® stands for Registered Yoga Teacher and is a registered trademark of the Yoga Alliance.  The Yoga Alliance is a non-profit organization that sets the educational standards for the yoga community. 

To be an RYT, teachers must complete a list of educational standards at a yoga school that is recognized and approved by the Yoga Alliance.  Requirements to be an RYT include training in yoga techniques, teaching methods and ethics, anatomy & physiology and yoga philosophy.  Once a certification is received, a teacher is then eligible to register with the Yoga Alliance. 

All RYTs must complete at least 200 hours or more of the approved training.  To learn more or to find a Registered Yoga Teacher in your area, visit www.yogaalliance.org
