Accreditation Pre-Application Readiness Assessment

In order to apply for IAYT accreditation of your yoga therapy training program, your curriculum and necessary operational support, i.e., faculty, school and program policies, must be fully developed and documented. Therefore, we strongly urge you to take the time to review the resources below, download the Readiness Assessment guide and begin your self-evaluation well before submitting your Pre-Application for accreditation.

Here are some resources available on the IAYT website that you will find key to a self-assessment of your school's and your program's readiness to enter the IAYT accreditation process. Once you have familiarized yourself with this information, you will be ready to conduct your readiness assessment.

  • Accreditation Guide- 2019 edition
  • Scope of Practice for Yoga Therapy

Engaging in this readiness assessment will help clarify if your yoga therapy training program is developed enough to be able to move through the rigorous process of accreditation successfully. 

It is highly recommended that you take the time to review all elements that are required and assess where your program stands in relation to those requirements ( gap analysis) . All programs wishing to enter the process are advised to do this self evaluation as thoroughly as possible.
