As a School

We registered yoga schools from all traditions and stiles, whose teacher training courses from 100 hours to 500-hour or above level (Including all levels) meet our standards.

Yoga schools that register with us are listed on our “Worldwide Yoga Directory” and all social media pages as Certified Yoga Schools and are authorized to use the initials/Logo “CYS” in profile or after their (school’s) name. Certified yoga schools provide yoga teacher training courses that meet our training standards, and are entitled to deliver World Yoga Alliance certification by WYA Divisions or Head office.
