Before You Enroll Anywhere Read This
THE FIRST THING that you have do is confirm that the website marketing the RYT 200 Hours Yoga Teacher Training is actually the Registered Yoga School (RYS) with Yoga Alliance❓
Now this might sound quite a basic element to any research, but you would be amazed at how many so called…
Bali India Australia Brazilian Yoga Retreat
RYT 200 HOURS YOGA TEACHER TRAINING ARE NOT YOGA ALLIANCE REGISTERED
We have all seen these on Facebook, Instagram posts yea !
What might surprise you and even be a little alarmed to know, is that many of these so called “fully certified yoga courses” are in fact not running certified courses by Yoga Alliance at all.
They are not a Registered Yoga School RYS
They do not have a full designation from Yoga Alliance to offer fully credentialed 200 Hours Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Teacher Training Course.
They are only affiliated to another RYS. The problem with this arrangement is that the RYS which they are affiliated to may have a lapsed registration, or it may have been cancelled by Yoga Alliance.
THERE ARE MANY INSTANCES of students paying the enormous course fees to an affiliate non registered school, only to discover after they have graduated, that the at the certificate they have received is from a completely different organisation.
This can and does cause the student many problems
We know of many cases, a MOST RECENT ONE from India, where affiliated schools in India, Goa, Rishikesh, Australia, Bali that were actually in this case, using the same RYS school name. The affiliated “schools” were owned independently, so not directly registered with Yoga Alliance as an RYS.
What these affiliates didn’t know was that the lead school, that was actually registered with Yoga Alliance the RYS, had been cancelled by Yoga Alliance for malpractice.
This meant that students had paid $3500 ++ for what they thought was a fully certified RYT 200 hours yoga teacher training course. Only to be horrified when finding out that they could not now register their yoga teaching certificate with Yoga Alliance, as the principle RYS had been deregistered.😱
A good point to remember is that any prospective yoga studio looking for a new yoga teacher would always choose the registered Yoga teacher over a non-registered teacher.

Why do a lot of so called promoters of RYT 200 yoga course use affiliates?
Well of course it is to cut corners and perhaps they have already has their RYS application rejected by Yoga Alliance, which happens quite a lot.
These yoga course promoters also have to pay a high commission (up to $700 in some case) to the actual RYS for every certificate the RYS signs off on. One of the reasons the yoga teacher training courses are so high, and will continue to increase.
There is at the moment a significant number of “200 hour Yoga Teacher Training courses “in Bali and Australia been promoted by overseas owners using the affiliate system.
They tend to call themselves yoga 200 retreats and are charging up from $3500 to $4500 for the RYT 200 course. Plus the $2000 accommodation plus compulsory tips, plus plus, plus. You can always detect that there is something not quite right if the website you are researching, does not mention the actual name of the RYS and is just quite generic.
What happens if there is a dispute between the affiliate and the RYS ?
