Definitions of Recertification Terms and Examples

C-IAYT Award Date:  The date when your initial C-IAYT was assigned.

C-IAYT Recertification Next Expiration Date: This date indicates when your current C-IAYT expires. For first time C-IAYTs, add three years to your C-IAYT Award Date - you officially have until the end of that month.

Note: Your C-IAYT certification is valid for 3 years and expires at the end of your initial certification month.  You may apply for recertification any time before or during your C-IAYT recertification month.

C-IAYT Certified Yoga Therapist - Yes: During your 3 year C-IAYT certification period you will enjoy all of the benefits of being a C-IAYT.

C-IAYT Certified Yoga Therapist - No: If your C-IAYT Recertification Next Expiration Date has passed your C-IAYT Recertification Status will be changed to Pending or Expired.  You will no longer enjoy the benefits of being a C-IAYT until your recertification application has been approved.

C-IAYT Recertification Status Pending: The 60 day period after your C-IAYT Recertification Next Expiration Date passes. Your C-IAYT Status will be changed to No, however, you can apply for recertification within the 60 days and, if approved, your New C-IAYT Recertification Next Expiration Date will be 3 years after your most recent C-IAYT Recertification Expiration Date.

C-IAYT Recertification Status Expired: If 61+ days have passed after your C-IAYT Recertification Next Expiration Date, your C-IAYT Recertification Status will be changed from pending to expired. Your C-IAYT Status will remain No. Once your recertification has expired you are required to pay a C-IAYT Reactivation Fee of $55 before you can 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 C-IAYT Recertification Expiration Date.
