Yoga Teacher Central Authorized Trainers Program


Yoga Teacher Central Authorized Trainer status recognizes trainers who have demonstrated good faith and investment in helping teachers to meet high knowledge standards.

Yoga Teacher Central is the first organization to define and publish a comprehensive set of Minimum Knowledge Standards for yoga teachers, and to provide a methodical and accessible curriculum for meeting the standards, including an extensive library of professionally-derived, multi-lineage curriculums, lessons and assessments.

Despite decades of inadequate “teacher trainings” that have turned out a glut of unprepared teachers amidst a lack of industry standards, Yoga Teacher Central trainer members have been proactive in going far beyond expectations to optimally prepare teacher trainees.

While knowledge must accompany practice and mentoring to result in excellent teaching, upholding high knowledge standards is a significant differentiator among trainers.

For background information and a comprehensive view of standards and related subjects, please see the Yoga Teaching Standards & Self-Assessment Hub.
