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. At White Crow Yoga, we have YTTs that are used for continuing education credits (CECs), certification programs, and courses that lead to a registration through Yoga Alliance. Our CYT program is a Certified Yoga Training, available via home study, and students who complete the CYT course can use the credentials CYT behind their name.

The RYT designation is a standard in the industry and is granted by Yoga Alliance once a student has completed their coursework through a Registered Yoga School (RYS). White Crow Yoga is an RYS. This means that when you complete our 200-hour or 300-hour live training, you can submit your graduation certificate to Yoga Alliance (YA), along with the YA fee, and they will grant you the designation of an RYT-200 or RYT-500 (by submitting the RYT-300 certificate after your RYT-200 is completed). Some schools offer a live Yoga Teacher Training program that is not Yoga Alliance approved, which means you can’t register as an RYT with Yoga Alliance. We offer a live RYT program and a home study/online CYT course.

Does it matter if you have this designation?
For most of us, yes, it does, because many teaching jobs depend upon you having this credential. Also, our students are more educated than ever, and they may look for this credential in a teacher. We opted to have our program YA approved because we believe it offers our graduates more teaching opportunities and it allows more Yogis to find our program. We also want to continue to grow as the YA standards emerge.

Styles of Yoga
Our lineage is Thirumoolar’s Ashtanga Therapeutic Yoga. In this style, you’ll learn to teach a variety of classes, such as vinyasa flow, multi-level hatha yoga, yin and restorative. Our practices are all rooted in the eight limbs. Asana (poses) are a part of our training, but meditation, pranayama and the philosophy of yoga are equally stressed.
