How to become a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200/300) through the Yoga Alliance, USA

Chandra Yoga offers Yoga Alliance certified 200 hour & 300 hour yoga teacher training in India at Rishikesh and Dharamsala. Join our residential Yoga teacher training courses to become a certified Yoga Alliance certified yoga teacher.

If you have completed one of our 200 hour or 300 hour yoga teacher training courses, you are eligible to register with the Yoga Alliance as an RYT. If you currently have your 200 hour certificate, you do not need teaching experience in order to register. However, if you have earned your 300 hour certificate, you will not officially be a 300 Hour RYT until you complete and log 100 hours of teaching experience. Either way, it is a good idea to sign up with the Yoga Alliance as soon as possible.

Follow the prompted instructions on the Yoga Alliance website to create and account and apply for your RYT. Remember, you will need a scanned copy of your original, signed and stamped, Chandra Yoga School Certificate in order to be approved as an RYT. Once you have filled out the necessary information and uploaded your certificate, your application will be sent to us for approval. We will try to approve as soon as possible, usually within 2-3 days.

You will be asked to take a short survey rating our school as part of the application process. Your rating is reflected on our Yoga Alliance account for future students to see, so we ask that you please take this survey seriously, as it does affect our business.
