Yoga Teacher Central Authorized Trainers

Meaning & Significance of Authorized Trainer Status

Following is a list of Yoga Teacher Central Authorized Trainers. One list is by name and another by location.

These trainers have demonstrated good faith and investment in helping teachers to meet high knowledge standards.

For decades, the commercialization of “teacher trainings” has turned out a glut of unprepared teachers amidst a lack of industry standards. In contrast, Yoga Teacher Central trainers have been proactive, investing in world-class support that far exceeds expectations to optimally prepare their teachers. Specifically, these trainers have demonstrated a dedication that:

  • Ensures teacher trainees have the very best knowledgebase that they can consult for a lifetime of evolving teaching needs.
  • Gives trainers more time and energy to focus on providing excellent mentoring, individualized support and transmission.

Prospective trainees are advised to beware that despite propaganda to the contrary, Yoga Alliance affiliation is completely unrelated to quality (verifiable details provide here).

While teacher trainees must be dedicated to their own practice and to seeking mentoring in order to become the excellent teachers they wish to be, working with trainers who uphold high knowledge standards is a significant differentiator. Yoga Teacher Central Authorized Trainers are dedicated to supporting extremely thorough knowledge standards so their teachers can be optimally prepared to support the challenging and diverse needs of student populations.
