* BAVI IS NOT a Yoga Alliance Registered program. *
The global yoga landscape is changing and our bold belief is while YA may have started out as a well-intentioned "non-profit", they are outdated. YA does not represent the ethics and inclusivity we work to embody. They do not provide adequate introspection, regulations and supervision to meet our standards in support and trainings.
YA is not a governing body. They are not a certification body. They are simply a "criteria based model" which BAVI meets and exceeds their education standards.
BAVI has been carefully curated over the last year, offering a unique extensive program, rich with knowledge, exploring the depths of yoga roots, culture, principles, asana, various styles of practices + teachings, so you leave with a wealth of information and a network of resources to rely on.
Almost all studios dont ask or care if your certification program was registered by YA, but of course we can not guarantee.
Upon completion you will receive a certification of completion for BAVI 200 hour yoga teacher immersion program from us.
We would love to talk this through with you if you have any additional questions.
