Certification Application
Share |

Welcome to IAYT's Application Page!

We expect applications for certification to be ready in mid to late 2016. When we are ready, IAYT will accept applications for certification from IAYT members who are either graduates of IAYT accredited yoga therapists training programs, or eligible for grandparenting.

There are a number of things yoga therapists can do now in preparation for applying for certification when it does become available.

  • Become an IAYT member, if you're not already a member. Applications for IAYT certification will be available to IAYT members only.
  • Educate yourself about IAYT's self-regulatory efforts of our emerging profession, which include the development of educational standards for the training of yoga therapists, accreditation of yoga therapist training programs that meet those standards, and ultimately the certification of individual yoga therapists. See below for a list of resources.
  • Find out which yoga therapist training programs have achieved IAYT accreditation, and examine the structure of these programs and how they meet IAYT Educational Standards for the Training of Yoga Therapists. Additional programs are in the review process, and more are planning to apply.Check the list of approved programs regularly for an up-to-date list, and inquire with individual schools as to whether they have applied for IAYT accreditation or plan to do so.
  • Begin, if you haven't already, to document your yoga therapist education, training, and experience. Be as specific as possible, including education/training dates, education/training locations, and education/training outcomes - for example, diploma, certificate. For graduates of 300-hour therapy training programs or other yoga therapist training programs, be sure you have a detailed syllabus of your program. Keep specific records of your clinical experience as a yoga therapist and as an educator of yoga therapists. More details for documentation requirements will be developed and communicated, so please check the website regularly, and our publications.
