Please note:

Yoga Alliance has recently changed the way they accredit schools, which will affect how you apply for your RYT 500. There are several RYT designations: RYT-200, RYT-500, ERYT-200, RYT-500, ERYT 500. The designations for schools however are: RYS 200, RYS 300, RYS 500. This may seem a little confusing at first, so we wanted to clarify this process and what it means for you. As a yoga teacher, you can only apply for either an RYT-200 or an RYT-500. Once you accumulate the required amount of teaching hours, you can apply to upgrade your status to E-RYT (E stands for Experienced). Yoga Alliance wanted to make a distinction between schools that offer all 500 hours of training at once and schools that offer both a 200 RYT hour track and then an additional 300 RYT hour track to equal RYT 500. Schools like YogaFit® that offer the additional 300 hour RYT track accept students from other 200 hour schools (with the prerequisites of Level 1 and Anatomy & Alignment), whereas 500 RYS schools do not. When you complete your additional 300 hours, you will receive a 300 hour certificate from YogaFit®. You will submit this to Yoga Alliance just as you submitted your 200 RYT. They will already have your 200 RYT on record, so you will receive a 500 RYT certificate (200 + 300 = 500). Therefore, when you are on the Yoga Alliance website you must click on 300 hour schools to find YogaFit®. We appreciate your patience through this change in the process. Please reach out to info@yogafitcanada.com with any questions.
