Accrediting Yoga Therapy Training Programs

First implemented in 2013, the IAYT’s voluntary, international accreditation program is for comprehensive yoga therapist training programs offered by its member schools.

Accreditation is a recognized means of promoting quality and continuous improvement. The IAYT developed an accreditation program to serve:

  • the public by developing a set of educational standards intended to promote safe and effective practice,
  • the yoga therapy practitioner and educator communities by promoting a stronger and more well-defined professional identity for the field, and
  • yoga therapy students by establishing standards and policies designed to ensure access to quality training
