Denial or Revocation of Membership
Approved by the IAYT Board of Directors on November 18, 2015
IAYT’s mission is to establish yoga therapy as a recognized and respected profession. Promoting responsible and ethical behavior on the part of yoga therapists and yoga therapy training programs is at the heart of our mission. While IAYT membership is generally available to any individual or organization that meets IAYT’s membership criteria, the IAYT Board of Directors reserves the right to deny or revoke membership in situations where there is reliable evidence of egregious action on the part of an individual or organization that is incompatible with responsible and ethical yoga therapy practice and instruction.
