Special to YJ: Yoga Alliance’s Position on Government-Regulated Yoga


This is an interesting development. I know there are some teachers for whom the idea of a professional association for yoga is anathema. But if they are seeking public advocacy in the interests of teachers, then that’s one reason it is worthwhile to support, and attempt to direct a professional association. Maybe Yoga Alliance is maturing.

In recent months, Yoga Alliance has learned that state agencies regulating occupational education programs in Arkansas and Colorado are attempting to impose burdensome and costly new requirements on yoga teacher training (YTT) programs operating in those states. As the largest nonprofit trade association representing the yoga community in the U.S., we have mobilized to combat these unnecessary and onerous regulations.
