Are yoga teachers certified?

Teacher Certification

There is no current national certification program in the United States for yoga teachers.

You should always ask about a teacher's qualifications before beginning instruction. Where was the teacher trained? What type of yoga does the teacher specialize in? If possible, ask to attend a class before signing up.

I personally enjoy trying different teachers. I find that every teacher has a unique approach and manner. This gives me a renewed outlook on my own practice.
