Registering your course hours with Yoga Alliance


The course hours count either as Level 2 (RYS-300) hours and YACEP hours. 

– but please note that the hours can’t be registered BOTH as YACEP hours and RYS-hours – so if you’re gathering hours for a 500-registration with us, we recommend that you don’t register the hours as YACEP.
Option 1: Level 2
– If you want to save the hours to use them as part of our 300 hour course (level 2) course: no action required from your side. 
Option 2: YACEP
– If you do want to register the hours as YACEP hours, click on the link in the email that you received from Christina straight after the course. 
The course is also registered with Yoga Alliance Professionals, UK 
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. 

If you are registered with Yoga Alliance​

You can register these hours either as:
Option a) 30 hours as Level 2 hours (RYS 300) towards a RYT-500 registration
Option b) 30 continuing education hours (YACEP)


Option 1) Level 2 
No action required.
Don’t upload the course certificate to the YA website: then it will count as YACEP-hours, not level 2 hours. When you have reached 300 hours you’ll get a RYT-300 certificate which you can register with Yoga Alliance. There are LOTS of courses to choose between if you’d like to continue on this exciting journey: see below for a list of courses that we offer in collaboration with The Shala, London.


Option 2) YACEP 
1) Log in on and go to your dashboard. 

2) Choose “My training hours” 

3) Choose “Add training hours” – “taught by a YACEP”

4) Upload your certificate 

5) Find your YACEP:  “Jennie Wadsten” (or “Melanie Cooper”) and the course dates 

6) Find the course. 

7) Request confirmation.  

We’ll approve it, and you’ll get a confirmation email. Please let us know if you need any help.
