If I train with a school that is registered with YAP, do I automatically receive membership?


Are you enrolled on a Yoga Alliance Professionals (YAP) registered teacher training course? Thats fantastic! You are considered a Trainee Member for the length of your training course. 

However, it's important to note that this is not full yoga teacher membership. Trainee membership only lasts for the length of your course and will expire upon graduation. Additionally, there is an extra fee to take out trainee insurance.

Trainee Members do not receive a profile on the YAP website. Instead, you will gain access to our Trainee Hub. The Trainee Hub has a lot of helpful resources and information. Plus, from the Trainee Hub, you can apply to take out trainee insurance.

After your course has finished and once we receive graduation confirmation from your training school, we will contact you to discuss joining as a full Teacher Member.
