Teacher Directory

Search For A Teacher

Please note there is no legislation for yoga teachers, and all Full YAA Members who are yoga teachers may be included in this directory.  YAA Certification is different from YAA Membership and completely voluntary.  YAA Certified teachers are recognized throughout Canada and the U.S., and are leading the way with some of the highest standards for initial training and continuing education requirements.  The YAA offers a mentorship-based hatha yoga Teacher Training Program as well as an Equivalency Certification Program that recognizes high standards of training through other sources. All YAA Certified Teachers are encouraged to upgrade through Advanced Training Levels.

To filter directory results by training level, use the Advanced Search or click on a Category below.  Listings by location are also available through the map or the Location Manager.

Please note:  It will take some time for teachers to personalize their Directory Listings and move their map pins to more precise locations.  Please bear with us as this new feature evolves. 🙏🏽
