Definition: E-RYT stands for Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher. Like the RYT title, E-RYT is a Yoga Alliance classification. Yoga teachers who have accrued two years and 1000 hours of teaching experience may register themselves E-RYT 200s, while those with four years and 2000 hours of teaching under their belts may become E-RYT 500s.

Examples: Now that I have been teaching for two years, I am going to register as an E-RYT with the Yoga Alliance.
