YACEP Yoga Workshops

The Yoga Alliance YACEP designation is designed for experts in the yoga community to set themselves apart and teach courses that qualify as Continuing Education hours for RYT's. Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT's) who take courses with a YACEP can trust that their training counts toward meeting their Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Requirements.

What are the Requirements for an RYT?


Every three years starting from your initial date of registration, each RYT and E-RYT must complete and log a minimum of 30 hours of yoga related training that is directly related to one of our Educational Categories, of which:

  • At least 10 training hours must be Contact Hours
  • No more than 20 training hours may be Non-Contact Hours

Teaching or training hours prior to registration do not count as Continuing Education. If you earn more than the required hours in a three-year period, the extra hours may not rollover into the next three-year period. Continuing Education hours should be spent learning something new, through research, study or experiential learning, rather than synthesizing or processing prior knowledge.

YACEP Certificate Requirements

Each YACEP is required to provide each individual that completes a YACEP course, class or workshop that includes contact hours with a certificate indicating the successful completion of the course. Each YACEP understands that it is their responsibility to understand what subject matter falls into each Educational Category and only uses the YACEP Designation in accordance with those rules. They also understand that the Yoga Alliance Educational Categories do not include diagnosis or treatment of mental or physical health conditions and have agreed that they will not offer courses, classes or workshops for CE credit that have as a substantial component instruction in diagnosis or treatment of mental or physical health conditions, as per the YACEP Terms and Conditions.
