RYT 500 means Registered Yoga Teacher who has studied and completed 500 hours of study. Teachers can register as a RYT® 500 if they have successfully completed a 500-hour yoga teacher training that is registered with Yoga Alliance. The 500 hours of training can either come from one school or can be a combination of a 200-hour teacher training plus 300 hours of advanced training from a RYS 300. Advanced training is defined as training that requires participants to have completed a 200-hour training.

What is 500 hour yoga teacher training?

The 500 hour yoga teacher training can be accomplished over a longer or a short period of time by first completing a 200 hour yoga teacher training, then completing a 300 hour advanced yoga teacher training course. The 200 hour course is an introductory course designed for beginner to intermediate level yoga practitioners. Advanced level practitioners can also join the 200 hour course, which gradually advances in intensity until the last week of training.

Are schools/ashrams/centers/institutes (name) Certified by Yoga Alliance?

No. The Yoga Alliance® is the largest nonprofit membership organization representing the interests of the yoga community. They do not certify yoga schools, ashrams, centers, institutes, etc. Their credentialing system is a directory, not to be confused with other types of credentialing systems (such as certifications, accreditations, licensure, etc.). Schools, etc., are required to maintain good standing by complying with standards set by Yoga Alliance, as well as by paying their annual renewal fees.
Not all schools, ashrams, yoga centers or yoga institutes register with the Yoga Alliance. It is important to thoroughly research each Yoga Teacher Training provider to determine whether or not they are.

Will I have free time?

Yes. While your days are relatively full from sunup to sundown, the daily schedule has amply apportioned free time for rest and self-study. If you would like some assistance, one of our staff will be happy to make suggestions and assist with arranging activities of your choice.
