Will I be fully prepared to teach after my Teacher Training Program?

What is the difference between a Yoga Teacher Training (YTT), a Certified Yoga Teacher Training (CYT) Program and a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) Program?
YTT is the term used for any Yoga Teacher Training and it holds no distinct recognition. It is simply an abbreviation for Yoga Teacher Training. An RYT is a Registered Yoga Teacher, which is a credential granted by Yoga Alliance. For years, we were a Yoga Alliance (YA) approved school, so we offered RYT programs. We no longer offer this designation.
Why? Over the years, we found many of our students did not register with YA after graduation, and those who did often told us it didn’t make a difference as far as getting yoga teaching jobs and they did not feel the membership was worth the money. There are jobs that do require an RYT, but many more studios now recognize there might be better ways to assess a teacher’s skill than a piece of paper.
Please do your due diligence. Decide for yourself if you are fine with being trained to be a skilled teacher and obtaining a certification or if you also need the registration.
