Yoga Alliance requires all Registered Yoga Teachers to accumulate at least 30 hours of continuing education every three years, with a maximum of 20 hours logged as non-contact hours. Online hours count toward this requirement! All courses and training qualify for non-contact Continuing Education Credits (CEUs) through Yoga Alliance.

Note: Online content counts toward your contact hours through Dec 31, 2023. If you have taken an online course with YI, you can select "Some Contact Hours."
