To start a offering Yoga Teacher Training you’ll need to write or buy a manual. Yoga Alliance (YA) requires a manual PDF in your RYS application. If you don’t have a manual, it’s something you’ll have to figure out.
With YA’s enhanced standards you need to write your yoga teacher training manual to include the new Core Competencies. There are 49 Core Competencies that fall under 4 educational categories.
The core competencies are described in the Yoga Alliance application guide to help you write each competency for your manual. The descriptions are only one or two sentences long, and you’re going to need multiple hours in many of the competencies.
The Core Competencies Series
In this series of videos about the core competencies we share tips to help you write your manual and training for a Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga School (RYS) application.
We share insights from the curriculum we designed and talk about each competency.
We’ll start with the first section of the Techniques, Training and Practice category under Asana.
Among the decisions, you will make for training are which Asana to include in your YTT. The only ones YA requires are sukasana and savasana. The rest of the poses to include are up to you.
See you next week with another video on the core competencies.
