We Can't Do It Without You!

IAYT'S First Major Fundraising Campaign

Dear Colleague,

It is my privilege to serve as board president of the International Association of Yoga Therapists. With over 3,400 individual members and 130 member schools in 48 countries, IAYT is the world’s leading professional association in the field of yoga therapy.

Our mission is to establish yoga as a recognized and respected therapy. Nothing is more important to this goal than ensuring quality education and qualified practitioners. That’s why we have created a rigorous accreditation process for yoga therapy training programs and have committed ourselves to developing a credible certification credential for practitioners.

I’m writing today to ask for your support of these essential initiatives by donating to the IAYT Fundraising Campaign. Our goal is $108,000, with contributions from at least 2,000 members by 2016.

Please consider a generous donation to support our important work. Click here to go to IAYT’s Fundraising Campaign webpage or you may find this page on our website under "Support IAYT”.

IAYT is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. While our membership fees support many of the valuable services we provide, we rely on donations to fund new projects and services that will—over time—further elevate the field and bring about a fundamental transformation of healthcare and wellness. We’re all in it together: with your support, IAYT accreditation and certification will open more doors than we ever imagined.

Thank you for your generosity!


Dilip Sarkar, MD

President, IAYT Board of Directors
