Congratulations again on passing your exams
and joining the thousands of Aura Wellness Center graduates as a Yoga Teacher!

As you start teaching and growing with your Yoga practice, it is important to continuing your training and stay current with the industry. To help our students with this, Aura requires its graduates to submit for recertification. To recertify, please start the process at least 3 months prior to the expiration date stated on your certificate and no more than 6 months prior to the expiration date stated on your certificate. Your first certificate is valid for 2 years. After that, students are required to recertify every 5 years.

All reputable Yoga organizations, as well as Yoga Registries like Yoga Alliance, believe in continuing education courses and the recertification process. This is also the standard for many certifications in the fitness industry. Recertification ensures that a teacher is keeping current with their practice. Teachers, who do not keep current, are more likely to harm their students due to infrequent practice, as it is very easy to become stale and “rest on your laurels,” after graduation. Our position is based on continuing education for student safety, establishing a safe track record, and your liability protection. As a certified Yoga teacher, you should stay current and be sharp. This means, attending workshops, taking continuing education courses, reading trade publications, and attending Yoga teacher seminars.

Aura wants to avoid having a teacher who puts down their practice for years, and then decides to start teaching again. We have recertification standards to ensure that doesn’t happen; therefore, a student can feel safe with an Aura Certified Yoga Instructor, by knowing that they are being held to high standards.

Insurance companies and employers also look for this because it differentiates an insured teacher/employment candidate. Those who come from a reputable school, ensuring that their practice is current, are more likely to enhance the reputation of the places for whom they teach, by providing safe and current methods.

Holistic Medicine, Physical Therapy, and Sports Medicine knowledge is moving at a rapid pace. All of these fields pertain to you as a Yoga teacher, if you want to prevent student injuries. If you do not continually “stay on top” of what is going on, you will set yourself up for negligence. In these times, that can be financially costly to you and leave you feeling guilty about it.

To stay up to date, you can take one of our continuing education or full online courses, attend onsite workshops, or take an outside program (workshop, seminar, or course), as long as it pertains to Yoga and/or Meditation, Holistic Medicine, Anatomy, Physical Therapy, or Sports Medicine. We continue to develop and add new course offerings for continuing education. To see the courses that are available now, you can visit our website:
