* Yoga Schools that provide Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) may apply to register several types of programs at the 200-hour 350-hour or 500-hour Designation.

* Registered Yoga Schools must provide Continuing Education Programs for their graduates to offer support to maintain and improve their professional competence.

* If the school is not conducting YTT but wish to train teachers for Children’s Yoga or Prenatal Yoga only, they can apply to have these programs accredited as Special Designation training.

* Schools currently registered with Yoga Alliance US or a similar recognised organisation can convert to Yoga Alliance South Africa. The benefits for a RYS of being involved with multiple professional organisations and associations in the yoga industry are numerous.
