Accrediting Yoga Therapy Training Programs
Implemented in the summer of 2013, the IAYT’s voluntary, international accreditation program is for yoga therapist training programs offered by its member schools.
Accreditation is a means of ensuring quality control and promoting continuous improvement. The IAYT developed an accreditation program to serve:
- the public by developing a set of educational standards intended to promote safe and effective practice,
- the yoga therapy practitioner and educator communities by promoting a stronger and more well-defined professional identity for the field, and
- yoga therapy students by establishing standards and policies designed to ensure access to quality training
