YOGA LOVE is a proud member of Yoga Alliance, the premier yoga standards of excellence organization.

Since Yoga Alliance’s founding in 1997, the teaching and practice of yoga has evolved drastically.  Yoga Alliance’s credentials support and foster the high quality, safe, accessible, and equitable teaching of yoga, evolving with the times, but staying true to this ancient practice and wisdom.

  1. Yoga Alliance’s credentials identify and support their members as experts and professionals who stand for quality, safety, accessibility, and equity in yoga
  2. Yoga Alliance upholds the credentials with integrity through enhanced standards and a strengthened application and review process
  3. Yoga Alliance supports their membership via continued advocacy, the expansion of educational resources and member benefits, and community-wide dialogues in support of the field’s challenges, such as equity in yoga and power and empowerment, so that our practice can continue to evolve alongside the cultures in which it is found

In February 2020, Yoga Alliance announced the collective member-wide Ethical Commitment, up-leveled standards for the foundational Registered Yoga School (RYS) 200 credential, and a strengthened application and review process. Throughout this entire process, Yoga Alliance also relied on decision-making principles founded upon traditional yogic values, equity, accountability, integrity, and balance and stability across the community.

Yoga Alliance acknowledges the ongoing evolution of yoga - changing and growing in both breadth and depth.  Yoga Alliance thanks their members and the broader yoga community for the continued support and dedication to the betterment of this ancient practice while we work together to foster high quality, safe, accessible, and equitable yoga teaching.
