All the reputable Yoga organizations that handle licensing for Yoga instructors believe in continuing education courses and the re-certification process. It is very easy to become stale and “rest on your laurels,” after graduation. As a certified Yoga teacher, you should stay current and be sharp. This means, attending workshops, taking continuing education workshops, reading trade publications, and attending Yoga teacher seminars.
Medical, Physical Therapy, and Sports Medicine knowledge is moving at a rapid pace. All of these fields pertain to you as a Yoga teacher, if you want to prevent student injuries. If you do not continually “stay on top” of what is going on, you will set yourself up for negligence. In these times, that can be financially costly to you and leave you feeling guilty about it.
Our re-certification policy is as follows:
First Certification – Two Years
Second Certification and Beyond – Five Years
You can take one of our continuing education courses for Yoga teachers. However, you can take courses from a variety of local Yoga workshops, seminars, and Yoga teacher training online courses.
