How Can I Become A RYT500?

At Yoga Alliance Professionals, the membership levels celebrate your hours of experience as well as your training hours.
While we do not have an 'RYT500' designation, we have membership levels such as Experienced Yoga Teacher and Senior Yoga Teacher. You can learn more about our designation requirements and career path here.

We are automatically informed when you are eligible to upgrade your level based on your graduation date and hours. When this happens, we'll email you with upgrade instructions. Make sure to keep your hours updated.

It's also worth noting that we include all of your additional training hours when you move up our career path. So whether you completed a 40-hour or 300-hour course, you can put this towards your upgrade. You can find all the details about CPD and training hours here.
