Steps to Apply for C-IAYT Recertification
Review your readiness for Recertification
a. Go to your Member Profile and review that the continuing education (CE) requirements for recertification are complete. You are required to have a minimum of 24 yoga therapy-related CEs including 2 CEs for passing the IAYT Ethics and Scope of Practice Quiz.
- Sign in to your member profile
- Go to Manage Profile
- Scroll down to Contents & Features
- Click on Professional Development
- Click on Journal Entries to see your CE details
b. Review all applicable C-IAYT Policies and Procedures. You will be asked to attest to them as part of the recertification application.
c. If you have completed all of the above and your C-IAYT is due for recertification you can proceed to register and complete the application.
Note: It is OK to complete your recertification up to12 months early (prior to your recertification month). Your recertification date is based on the month that you were originally awarded your C-IAYT credential. Your next recertification date will remain in this month (add three years for each cycle). See definitions of terms and examples below.
Recertification resets your continuing education requirements, which if done early, will add those extra months to your next CE cycle expanding the time you have to complete CEs for the next cycle. CEs must be earned within the particular cycle you are in.

If You Miss 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.
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.
