Other points to consider from Yoga Alliance:
Students should always check with their organisation for CPD points criteria as every yoga body has different criteria that from time to time are revised and/or changed.
Students must also be informed that the Yoga industry is largely unregulated anywhere in the world and there is NO “Global Yoga Governing Body” or authority anywhere in the world and it is inaccurate for any Yoga Alliance organisation to claim to be the “real” or “true” Yoga Alliance or a “Yoga Governing Body” in order to attract customers and mislead consumers under false pretense.
It is also important that students know that the Alliances are well known across the globe and certification endorsed by the most recognised and significant Yoga Alliance (Australia/International), Yoga Alliance UK/Professionals, the Canadian Yoga Alliance , Yoga Alliance (NZ), Yoga Alliance (US) and YogaAlliance (Italy/International) is valid anywhere in the world and enable yoga professionals to be employed and apply for insurance.
In our registry we have many international teachers that holds dual registration/membership with YA (USA), UK and Canada, Italy and Yoga Australia or that simply transfer to us and vice-versa. We can further confirm that as of to date we’ve never received a feedback from yoga professionals being refused membership/registration from YA UK or the Canadian Yoga Alliance or Yoga Australia because they belong to Yoga Alliance (Australia). Nonetheless, we cannot speak in the name and on behalf of any of these organisations and vice-versa.
