Graduates of Approved Original Hot Yoga Teacher Trainings
OHYA is taking a proactive stand in supporting the next generation of Original Hot Yoga Teachers by Approving the 26 and 2 trainings that submit to OHYA and show they have the hours, standards, experience, respect and support in our community to produce highly trained teachers. In the last few years, graduates of OHYA trainings often getting hired by Original hot yoga studios much more often than those who did not. (*disclaimer and clarification, we do not guarantee employment at any school, but hope that our standards increase your chances of employment in our schools.) Please check if the training you took is Approved by OHYA, and also check out our standards for Approved Teacher Trainings.
If you completed an OHYA Approved training, you can join the OHYA Teacher Directory, once you,
- Teach for 6 months or longer AND complete at least 75 classes and fill out the Class Recorder Form
- Have a level 2 or higher studio owner (or if not available teacher) complete the Certificate of Standards Form to show you can teach an effective 26/2 90 minute class. Once you have completed these 2 forms, you can Register in the Directory, and send these completed from to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to having you in our community.
Once you complete your submission and pay your fee, ($125, valid for 3 years–renewals $99). There are no extra fees to request advancing your levels as you qualify for the next seal. The continuing education requirements are 30 hours every 3 years. You simply add them to your profile as you complete them. These requirements will also help all but ensure that our community of teachers is completing the same standards as required by other yoga organizations, should the states impose new regulations on yoga teachers. You will also have full access to our private directory and Facebook community to have a first look at all the goings on in our community. We are stronger together!
