Standards Review Project Timeline
Yoga Alliance has identified eight key areas of inquiry for this Standards Review: Scope of Practice, Code of Conduct, Integrity, Inclusion, Teacher Qualifications, Core Curriculum, Teacher Trainer Qualifications, and Online Learning. In addition to direct feedback from members and non-members, Yoga Alliance has assembled 10–15 subject-matter experts from within and outside yoga for each of these areas of inquiry.
Through a series of moderated video conference calls over a series of 6–12 week timeframes, working groups address specific questions on their respective topics; review and submit feedback to a Yoga Alliance liaison; and assemble a report of recommendations, which will be submitted to Yoga Alliance on the working group’s behalf.
