WE MAKE NO APOLOGIES FOR SETTING HIGH STANDARDS

Introducing the RYS 250 PLUS Standards in Europe

Being awarded the Yoga Alliance European Registry (YAER) Qualification identifies you as teacher who has made a commitment to the highest standards in the yoga industry, ethics and has been vetted by their peers for your level of skill, competency, and embodiment. 

By becoming a qualified YAER  Professional, you have the ability to differentiate your level of education and experience to potential students and potential employers, as well as be supported in your continued growth at the appropriate level.


YAER's Objective

The YAER main objective is guiding the direction of yoga teaching in Europe and beyond. As such, we have a responsibility to set high standards for membership with care in order to protect both the public and the tradition of yoga. 

For consumers, it is important to ensure they trust that yoga teachers registered with Yoga Alliance European Registry have at least a level of training and experience considered to be a reasonable minimum standard by their peers, employers, insurance companies and ultimately their students.


The new YAER's RYS 250 PLUS standards provides yoga schools with the opportunity to develop a

 minimum 250 and max 300 hours comprehensive teacher training.

In addition, we have created the RYT 250 PLUS credential to support yoga teachers to secure and maintain rewarding and sustainable employment. Teachers who hold an RYT 250 PLUS credential are more employable than those who hold a 200 hour qualification!
