Membership Benefits

Why join the International Yoga Teachers Association?

You will join yoga teachers from around the World who want to share and support other yoga teachers with their yoga journey. We are a team of like-minded people working together to promote and teach yoga in a professional and ethical manner.

You may be wondering how we are different…

  1. We are a Registered NON-PROFIT organisation. We’re not in it for the money, nobody earns a profit from IYTA. We’re not commercial, instead we follow ethical yogic principles.
  2. We are one of the few truly INTERNATIONAL Yoga Associations supporting yoga teachers around the world – represented in 20 countries – not just Australia, not just the USA, not just the United Kingdom.
  3. Membership benefits include generous discounts on further training, workshops, conferences, insurance, free CPD monthly video training tutorials, eNews newsletter and International Light Yoga Magazine… and more.
  4. There is a pathway to continue your Yoga journey or career. Choose from a selection of quality courses or workshops to gain further qualifications.
  5. Thousands of yoga teachers have graduated with the IYTA International Diploma of Yoga Teaching.
  6. We’re democratic – no one “owns” IYTA, every one is democratically elected – with set terms of office, so that no single person controls it, that way we all have a say.
  7. We are not controlled by a Guru. We respect all yoga lineages and styles and support teachers from all traditions.
  8. We live by, and expect members to follow, a strong code of yogic ethics.
  9. We exist solely to benefit you (the members).
  10. All are welcome to join whether an existing teacher, student or just interested in being a member of an ethical International Yoga Association.
  11. IYTA was one of the first registered Associations established (1967) to support Yoga teachers Internationally.

Join if you are looking to become a teacher or even to just improve your knowledge of yoga

  1. You can learn from an incredible community and a world-class Faculty, who teach and mentor from the heart and from their wealth of experience.
  2. You can keep up to date with Free monthly Continuing Professional Development tutorial videos (for full members).
  3. We offer correspondence education programs as well as online video recordings to help you where ever you may be.
