Yoga Alliance® and Innovations           

True innovation takes place when people are free to raise ideas, take ownership of them, and then implement them! That’s Our History and Why we are an organisation that Think Different…………

Established in 2013 by a group of world's renowned yogis from the UK, the US, Italy, India and Australia direct scholars and  personal friends of Shri K. Pattabhi Jois, Derek Ireland and Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar Yoga Alliance International is the most innovative of  the Yoga Alliance Organisations.

January 2017 implementation Standards "RYT/RYS PLUS" 

 In January 2017, Yoga Alliance® (International) was the FIRST Alliance to update its Standards system based on the proliferation of low quality yoga teacher training, and inadequately trained yoga teachers. Updates were made after receiving input from many member schools, renowned yoga experts and yoga teachers from every corners of the world!

 We are extremely proud that our new “PLUS Standards Model”, prompted other Yoga Alliance organisations to review their standards scheme.

Yoga Alliance bring yoga and all it encompasses to a multitude of individuals from many yoga styles and traditions! With great admiration and appreciation.



I had the pleasure in being accepted and taking part in the Yoga Alliance Academy® 250 hour face to face Gheranda Samhita Teacher Training.

It was a challenging yet transformational experience. Not only did I develop confidence in my abilities but the course is designed in such a way that when you finish, you leave with the belief you can teach and help others through the practice of Yoga.

I was truly immersed into the world of Yoga. I was able to develop my asana practice and was introduced to the history and philosophy of Yoga. Additionally the course is well thought-out to provide students with the necessary building-blocks to become a well-equipped Yoga teacher. Students are taught how to guide and teach a class, from learning how to structure a class to using physical and verbal alignment queues.

Each day was structured and tailored for students where they can challenge and build their skills whilst being a nurturing process.
It was a privilege to be taught by great teachers , and I am looking forward in taking part in future courses with the Yoga Alliance Academy®.

If you want to become a powerful Yoga teacher and learn how to properly teach, I would recommend Gheranda Samhita Yoga Teacher Training.
