Yoga Alliance is the largest nonprofit association representing the yoga community. Our mission is to spread the power of yoga, one person at a time.
Our role as the national support organization for the yoga community is to ensure that the practice of yoga will keep growing, so that more people will connect with yoga and be transformed. We have over 55,000 Registered Yoga Teachers (RYTs) and more than 3,500 Registered Yoga Schools (RYSs).
Yoga Alliance and Yoga Alliance Registry are related organizations that work together to support the yoga community. Yoga Alliance is a nonprofit 501(c)(6) membership professional and trade association. Yoga Alliance Registry is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) public charity. For the sake of simplicity, we sometimes refer to the related organizations collectively as “Yoga Alliance.”
Yoga Alliance Registry conducts our credentialing and developmental activities. Our credentialing activities include the teacher and school registries. Yoga Alliance provides member benefits and services, including our conference, Member Perks and Online Workshops.
