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
