A message from Yoga Alliance on remaining a student.

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.
