Do you want to be a Registered Children's Yoga Teacher?
Whilst, it is not a legal requirement to register as a Children's Yoga Teacher because yoga is an unregulated industry, it is encouraged. Registering as a Children's Yoga Teacher with a governing body (Yoga Australia or Yoga Alliance) reassures you that you meet industry standards; gives you professional support, boosts your options for teaching opportunities for you, especially in school or clinic settings where professional registrations are the 'norm'.
As of 2019, Yoga Australia no longer has a separate Registered Children's Yoga Teacher (RCYT) category. They do maintain their recommendation for Children's Yoga Teachers to be a registered Level 1 Yoga Teacher (350 hours) + undertake 50 hours of speciality training in Children's Yoga, with 33 hours of that being face to face content. That equates to about 5 days of face to face training.
Yoga teachers registered with Yoga Australia can claim CPD points towards their level upgrade or annual registration when completed the training.
The Yoga Alliance requirements to be a RCYT is to have a 200 hr Level 1 Yoga Teacher certificate + 95 hours of specific training in Children's Yoga. Of those 95 hours, 87 of them must be face to face.
