March 4, 2019 - IAYT is now accepting new APD Provider registrations and Course applications
into the APD Program.  

A goal of the APD Program is to be a source for yoga therapists to search for opportunities for additional training to maintain their core competencies and advance their professional growth.  The APD Program provides an avenue to earn continuing education hours in recognized programs that are pre-approved to meet the requirements of C-IAYT renewal.  IAYT members and member schools who list APD courses on the IAYT website gain visibility and direct access to both the growing population of IAYT certified yoga therapists as well as other IAYT members seeking yoga therapy professional development opportunities.  

After reviewing these materials, if you have questions, use the Contact Us link at the upper right corner of our website to reach an APD team member.
