Did you know that people that are NOT Yoga Teachers, can actually be Yoga School owners?
This is great news for gyms, fitness academies, high schools, colleges and universities or yoga teachers that are not registered with Yoga Alliance.
All these people can take ownership of a professional yoga school registered with Yoga Alliance by hiring an experienced yoga teacher as the lead trainer.
Watch How Non-Yoga Teachers Have a Yoga School:
This also means that experienced yoga teachers could be the Lead Trainer in a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training without having to be the school owner!
We are writing to share the details about this collaboration opportunity within our industry with you by looking at the Yoga Alliance website.
We’ll show you how all this is possible, what it really means and how this policy works both ways.
For those of you relieved to hear you can have a school even if you’re not a qualified yoga teacher, here are some things to keep in mind:
- The application process is exactly the same regardless of if you are the school owner or lead trainer,
- In order to complete the school application, you do need to have a qualified lead trainer for your program,
- The lead trainer you choose must teach 150 hours of training and a school owner or non-lead trainer can teach 50 hours of the training if the curriculum they plan to teach is relevant to the training
- As the school owner, you have hire up to 5 lead trainers
Overall, this is good news for people that want a yoga school but do not qualify as a lead trainer as well as for experienced yoga teachers that want to offer YTT but don’t want the responsibility of owning a studio or school.
