Yoga Teacher's Continuing Education by YACEP providers
YACEP providers are given the designation by the Yoga Alliance, a yoga teacher organization that sets standards for education for yoga teachers. A YACEP provider must be an E-RYT - another designation that requires a minimum of 1,000 documented hours of teaching experience. (Experienced registered yoga teacher).
We currently have on our team teachers who have in the past or currently are yoga studio owners, have developed and trained both 200 hr and 500 hr yoga teacher training programs, or have developed an expertise in an area of yoga. Our staff of teachers have much more than the minimum requisite experience and training, some with 10, 15 or 20 years of teaching experience. Our continuing education trainings are offered by the best trainers available.
