The IAYT Credentialing Committee has updated the IAYT Scope of Practice for Yoga Therapy (SOP).  We have listened to and revised the document to alleviate the concerns from some LHCPs.  The IAYT SOP is not intended to limit in any way practices that may fall under the scope of practice of the concurrent healthcare qualification, or otherwise impede or prevent a LHCP from practicing according to their scope of practice.

It is IAYT's intent to provide guiding principles for C-IAYT yoga therapists while clearly understanding and acknowledging LHCPs who may use yoga/yoga therapy within their own scope of practice.
