Achieving C-IAYT certification demonstrates the mastery of specific core competencies including knowledge, skills and abilities required within a Yoga Therapist professional practice, therefore the focus of C-IAYT recertification is to maintain the core competencies and advance the professional growth and development of each C-IAYT. To that end, each C-IAYT is required to recertify every 3 years.
