Yoga alliance defines contact hours as hours that take place in the physical or virtual presence of a faculty member. Yoga alliance defines non-contact hours as hours that may take place without a faculty member present. Your non-contact hours are acquired by completing the required reading assigned for each individual training you participate in.
