Eligibility for IAYT Certification
as a Yoga Therapist
Only IAYT members who are Graduates of IAYT accredited yoga therapist training programs may apply for IAYT Certification (C-IAYT) anytime following completion of their program.
• See accredited yoga therapist training programs
All applicants for IAYT certification (C-IAYT) must be current IAYT members and agree to the IAYT Code of Ethics and Grounds for Disciplinary Action, Use of the C-IAYT Credential, and review the Scope of Practice. These and other IAYT policies related to certified yoga therapists can be found in the Certification Policies and Procedures.
If you are a practicing yoga therapist interested in being a C-IAYT, not currently attending an accredited program, and did not apply for certification while grandparenting was available, we would like to know more about why you did not apply. Providing feedback via a short survey will help us decide how we might open up an alternative path to IAYT certification in 2018 for well-qualified individuals.
