200-Hour Standards for Yoga Teacher Training These Standards describe Yoga Alliance®’s Requirements for a Registered Yoga School (RYS®) that offers a 200-hour program. Topics for registered teacher trainings must be relevant to the five YA Educational Categories below. Registered schools must provide a minimum number of hours of study for each category, and must also provide additional hours of study relevant to these categories, which may be distributed according to the school’s chosen emphasis.
A RYS with a 200-hour program (RYS 200) should adequately prepare trainees to teach a general adult population and must incorporate training hours in the following YA Educational Categories:
1. Techniques, Training and Practice: 100 hours Topics in this category could include, but would not be limited to: asanas, pranayamas, kriyas, chanting, mantra, meditation and other traditional yoga techniques. These hours must be a mix between: 1) analytical training in how to teach and practice the techniques, and 2) guided practice of the techniques themselves. Both areas must receive substantial emphasis.
2. Teaching Methodology: 25 hours
*Topics in this category could include, but may not be limited to: Communication skills such as group dynamics, time management, and the establishment of priorities and boundaries.

4. Yoga Philosophy, Lifestyle and Ethics for Yoga Teachers: 30 hours
Topics in this category could include, but would not be limited to: The study of yoga philosophies and traditional texts (such as the Yoga Sutras, Hatha Yoga Pradipika or Bhagavad Gita). Yoga lifestyle, such as the precept of non-violence (ahimsa), and the concepts of dharma and karma. Ethics for yoga teachers, such as those involving teacher – student relationships and community.
