Yoga Alliance does not formally certify students. It keeps a register for anyone who is interested in finding a certified teacher. I would focus more on the content of the teaching. It is our experience that sometimes practitioners who have been teaching for more than a decade still find what we have to offer valuable. That said, there are situations in which certificates are needed. One may need a certificate when marketing, or when applying for a job as a yoga teacher. Certification is also necessary for those who want to pursue further education and accreditation, and register that in Yoga Alliance. Quite simply, Yoga Alliance is currently widely recognized nowadays, and it has to some extent managed to overcome sectarian disputes in which a particular lineage claims a monopoly on genuine yoga.
