How can one Organization BE CERTIFIED?

One of the most important goals of the World Movement is to create a true Yoga and Ayurveda community in the World. It is under this prospect that the Pedagogical Committee is created, made up of masters with genuine experience who represent several countries members of the Association.
The Pedagogical Committee is constantly reviewing and updating the programmes that should be fulfilled in the centers & schools where the Yoga or Ayurveda teacher's training is given. The said programmes respect all lines and styles and are set up taking into account the idiosyncracy of each and every lineage, tradition and the inherited teachings, as well as the personal experiences

The World Movement is the official organization recognized to confer the necessary Certifications which guarantee the Training given in the schools.
