Continuing Education Requirements

We are all students of yoga. Regardless of how accomplished you are as a teacher, success should inspire continued learning and growth. Each RYT must meet the following Continuing Education (CE) Requirements on an ongoing basis.

What are the Requirements for an RYT?

Every three years starting from your initial date of registration, each RYT and E-RYT must complete and log a minimum of:

45 hours teaching yoga, and

30 hours of yoga related training that is directly related to one of our Educational Categories, of which:

At least 10 training hours must be Contact Hours.

No more than 20 training hours may be Non-Contact Hours.

Teaching or training hours prior to registration do not count as Continuing Education.

If you earn more than the required hours in a three-year period, the extra hours may not rollover into the next three-year period.

Continuing Education hours should be spent learning something new, through research, study or experiential learning, rather than synthesizing or processing prior knowledge.

As a school, folks will come and then go as they find their own path, but I always hold a space for them to call Edge Yoga School their home. 🏡 🤗💕

Fri 6-9pm, Sat 10-6pm and Sun 10-4p
Cost: $375

In the Y12SR Leadership we:
• Create safe, sacred, open, inclusive space that welcomes all those dealing with their own addictive behavior or are affected by the addictive behavior of others.
• Understand the 12-step process of addiction recovery as well as recognizing the symptomology of unresolved trauma, and a dys-regulated nervous system.
• Use yoga and its practices to provide relapse prevention tools and sustainable ways for managing internal states.
• Take advantage of teachable moments, help resolve ambivalence and work with those who are struggling emotionally.
• Use social learning theory to model new behavior through observational learning.
• Recognize the traps of projection, transference, countertransference, boundary violation, spiritual bypass, arrogance.
• Work collaboratively within the group setting and with institutions.
• Develop a network of professionals including trauma experts and others in the addiction/recovery treatment field.
This training is designed for yoga teachers wanting to work with the recovery population. It is also found to be extremely relevant and helpful for therapists, counselors, social workers, probation officers and others with a desire to understand how the ancient philosophies and practices of yoga align with the 12-step program of recovery.
To be a certified Y12SR Leader, you must complete both the Y12SR Leadership Training and Y12SR Intensive, which is now available online. Programs may be taken in any sequence.
