Why Getting Yoga Certified is a Benefit

As stated above, certification gives you instant credibility. People tend to trust yoga instructors who are certified more than those who are not.
But more important than that piece of paper is the additional, advanced knowledge and skills that come with the course. The safety guidelines that you learn will help you protect your students from injury. Getting yoga certified will also make it easier for you to purchase liability insurance, which is a must.
Many experienced yoga instructors are neither certified nor registered. To date, neither credential is necessary in the US to become a yoga instructor. But this could change.
However, with yoga becoming more mainstream, more studios require teachers to be certified. So, getting that yoga instructor certification will certainly make you more desirable, resulting in more job offers. Hanging that yoga certification on the wall will also result in more students if you plan to open your own studio.
Some countries require yoga teachers to be registered. If you live outside the United States, you might want to check on the regulations in your country if you will need to be registered.
It is important to note though, that to be a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with the Yoga Alliance, you will need on-site training or “contact hours.” If interested, you can check with the Yoga Alliance (www.yogaalliance.org) to find out what their standards are today.

Hi, Amber here.

Welcome, yogis and yoginis!

Thank you for stopping by my yoga certification website.

You've probably noticed that, slowly but surely, more studios now require their teachers to be certified yoga instructors. And, rightly so.

I am sure you will agree that yoga certification is a benefit to both the teachers and the students alike.
