We are a fraternity of yogis, doctors, and other healthcare professionals from all over the world.
RightYoga is the premier registry of The Finest and Most Authentic Yoga Practitioners in the World. We are a unifying community of yoga teachers and non-teachers alike. In the true spirit of yoga we do not exclude highly experienced yogis or those who may not have learned from a particular yoga school.
To transform the world, we don’t need just five or six yogis and yoginis. We need millions of them. And there already ARE millions of authentic, highly experienced yoga practitioners in the US and around the world.
If we release their latent energy by helping them to get certification, so their voices will be taken seriously and they can teach everything they know to others. They can teach their friends, neighbors, and colleagues. These silent yogis can reach far more people than yoga teachers currently can. These silent yogis have the capacity to change the world.
To help this happen we believe all yogis need to be certified and brought to the forefront along with teachers.
RightYoga therefore endeavors to certify all yogis whether they teach yoga or not, or have learned yoga from a school or not. However, for authenticity and integrity of the certification, we require that all yogis supply a video demonstration of their practice.
RightYoga visually assesses all its applicants via video prior to being awarded its prestigious online yoga instructor certification and registry membership. This is for their various yoga skills such as physical techniques, breathing exercises, meditation methods, and knowledge of ancient yoga philosophy. Yogis also have to answer a detailed questionnaire.
RightYoga is dedicated to recovering what we believe to be the essence of an authentic yoga practice and certification: experience in asanas, pranayamas, meditations, and yoga lifestyle and philosophy. As added value, RightYoga also encourages yogis with studios and large numbers of students to acquire appropriate skills in CPR and other first aid.
To ensure students are always in the safest and most beneficial environment, all applicants of RightYoga certification are also required to accept our Eternal Oath of Yoga Instructors.
Additionally, with the surging interest in yoga worldwide, genuine students are finding it increasingly difficult to authentically identify the finest teachers who uphold the highest standards of yoga physically, philosophically, and ethically; reciprocally, authentic teachers and private practitioners are finding it increasingly difficult to get found.
Thus, the founding of RightYoga and the re-establishment of yoga’s ancient holistic values reflected in our Oath!
RightYoga endeavors to provide the finest registry of yogis in the world where genuine seekers can easily find genuine yoga instructors.
Who we are
RightYoga’s special vetting of all members is aided by a volunteer group of healthcare professionals – doctors, nurses, and pharmacists as well as world class experts in yoga and body-mind-spirit such as monks and former monks such as yogi Sanjay C Patel.
