Yoga Alliance requires all yoga teachers to accumulate at least 30 hours of continuing education every three years. They recently changed their continuing education requirements to allow 20 hours of online yoga studies to count towards this requirement.
Our Traumatic Stress Conference will fulfill 13 of these online study hours. Sign up now and you will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course. This is a great way to expand your teaching and develop your practice while completing your Yoga Alliance CE requirement.
