Your YogaFaith® Certification demonstrates your commitment to excellence with an internationally accredited school. Your certification requires completion of the renewal process in order to maintain the credential. It is essential to maintain credentials from the accrediting agency or school where you received your certification, such as YogaFaith. A membership based alliance is not your credentialing agency.  As a current certification holder, you are placed on the YogaFaith Directory free of charge for visibility of prospective students, customers, employees and/or employers.

YogaFaith® Certifications are valid for two (2) years. CEC’s should be accrued for the current certification cycle and cannot be applied to future cycles. Any CEC’s prior to becoming certified do not count as CEC. Only new areas of studies are considered to be continued education. Renewals can be completed online or by mail.

YF requires a minimum of 2.0 CEC’s every two years in order to be current with safety standards and to enhance your knowledge in the process. A minimum of 10 hours (1 CEU) must be in person, the other 10 hours can be distant learning or non contact hours. No more than 10 hours (1 CEU) can be non-contact. See details in the YF Continued Education Credit Policy.
