Does anyone know anything about Yoga Alliance UK? Just wondering about an alternative to the British Wheel of Yoga. The history of BWY is rooted in deceiving the public that they were an arm of the UK government.

Hi Mila,

Who cares? It's all politics. The UK has 3 different registries if you want to join one at all. All you really need is certification and insurance to teach yoga.

Couldn't resist a UK question. Mila cares, so let's do our best to sort this out. What Rose said is true (3 UK registries - politics), but extra paper and cards can make you look good with a liesure centre, health club or fitness centre. BWY has been around for about 30 years. YA-UK has been around for a few years. Yoga Alliance UK isn't the same group as the North American Yoga Alliance that some refer to as YA-USA not to be confused with Yoga Alliance of the Americas.

Now I'm really confused. Hahaha. Yoga Alliance USA or Yoga Alliance of the Americas? So now we have three registries in the United States with the International Yoga Federation in the mix. Back to the UK - If you want to join a registry, see which one is the most reasonable to work with. From the reputation built by British Wheel of Yoga, one could venture to say they should be cold.

In comparison to each other Yoga Alliance (USA) VS Yoga Alliance UK, Yoga Alliance UK is a much better and moral organization.

Actually there is a very interesting story about how the CEO of the Yoga Alliance in Virginia, USA encouraged them to build their own Yoga Alliance in the UK and then as that YA CEO was removed from office forcefully, the new staff decided it would be a good idea to try and take them to court. Yoga Alliance (USA) tries to do this with any competing Registrar. They even sued The International Yoga Federation.

Yoga Alliance (USA) is scum, their President isn't even a Yoga Instructor and they pretend that they are needed to teach Yoga. They have nothing to do with the US Government at all!!

All in all Yoga Alliance UK is a much better place to go, especially if you are a teacher in the UK. They do not lie about who they are or what their mission is.

Strong language! Yuri - you've got to calm down and breathe slowly. This registration stuff is way too political. We just want to teach yoga classes.

This registry business is totally unimportant. It's not a matter of life and death. Nobody cares except yoga teachers with big egos. The government and your insurance don't require it. Depending on where you live certification is important. Health clubs want a valid yoga certification. Why pay so much money for registration from an organizations that's not even run by yoga teachers?

Tintin is right. The Independent Yoga Network is a good group in the UK and they are also known as the Yoga Register.
