A Primary E-RYT is a designated faculty member of a Registered Yoga School (RYS). Yoga Alliance standards require a minimum number of contact hours be taught by Primary E-RYTs. These teachers must be E-RYTs at the corresponding level of training they are providing: E-RYT 200s for RYS 200s, E-RYT 500s for RYS 500s. For RCYS (Children’s) and RPYS (Prenatal), the Primary E-RYTs must carry the corresponding specialty designation (RCYT or RPYT). For a RYS 200, RCYS or RPYS you may have a maximum of two Primary E-RYTs. For a RYS 500 you may have a maximum of five Primary E-RYTs.
