For students beginning their ParaYoga journey with the online trainings:

These online trainings count fully towards ParaYoga certification through the ParaYoga Master Training (PYMT) program, and will also count as fulfilling certain prerequisite requirements for other ParaYoga trainings.  You are welcome to enroll in the ParaYoga Master Training program at any time, but it is not necessary to enroll before beginning your study with ParaYoga online. We will be updating this page as we get more specific information from Yoga Alliance as they are currently refining their protocols.  As the full PYMT is by design an advanced training, it is optimally utilized as a 300 hour RYT; when added to an already existing 200 hour certification, it credentials you at the YA-500 hour level.
