b. Review all applicable C-IAYT Policies and Procedures. You will be asked to attest to them as part of the recertification process.

C-IAYT Recertification Application Forms are reviewed in the order they are received. Please allow 60 days to hear back from the Certification Team.

Step 5: If Approved, You Can Access Your New C-IAYT Certificate

If your recertification application is approved you will receive an official letter by email.  You will be able to access a digital copy of your new Certificate from your member profile with the new C-IAYT Recertification Next Expiration Date.You can download and print your certificate, put it in a frame, and mount it on your wall as evidence to clients and others of your active certification through the International Association of Yoga Therapists. Note: Paper certificates are available for $25 USD. Use Contact Us to request.

You will also continue to enjoy your C-IAYT benefits including the IAYT Service Mark to use on your website and marketing materials.

Step 6: If More Information is Needed for Recertification

If your recertification information is incomplete, for example you have not met the CE requirements, you will be notified by the Certification Team and requested to submit the missing information prior to approval. 

Step 7: If You Miss Your C-IAYT Recertification Next Expiration Date

If your C-IAYT Recertification Next Expiration Date passes, your Recertification Status will be changed to pending. You must apply for recertification within 60 days after your C-IAYT Recertification Next Expiration Date. Once approved, your new C-IAYT Recertification Next Expiration Date will be 3 years after your most recent C-IAYT Recertification Next Expiration Date. During this pending status you do not have C-IAYT benefits.

If your C-IAYT Recertification Next Expiration Date passes and you do not apply for recertification within 60 days, your Recertification Status will be changed from pending to expired.  Once your recertification has expired you are required to pay a Reactivation Fee of $55 before you can register and apply for recertification. Once you pay the reactivation fee you can then follow the steps for applying. If your application is approved, your new C-IAYT Recertification Next Expiration Date will be 3 years after your most recent Recertification Next Expiration Date. During this expired status you do not have C-IAYT benefits.
