What are the benefits of my C-IAYT recertification?

C-IAYT is the gold standard for yoga therapy professionals.  IAYT Certified Professionals make a difference in people’s lives every day.  Maintaining your C-IAYT certification means you’ll have the respect of both your fellow yoga therapy professionals and clients.  You’ll gain the credibility that you need with employers and respected educational and health-related institutions and organizations.  And, you’ll show that you have achieved a level of knowledge backed by the IAYT.

Also, your C-IAYT recertification will allow you to continue to enjoy C-IAYT benefits including:

  • A new digital C-IAYT certificate and an official letter of certification
  • Use of the C-IAYT service mark and credential for websites and marketing materials

How can I find my recertification date?

Your C-IAYT recertification date is 3 years after your C-IAYT Award Date.  The bottom of your C-IAYT Certificate says you are valid until the end of month, year.  For example, if your C-IAYT Award date is 9/16/2016 your recertification date is 9/16/2019 and you have until the end of September 2019 to recertify.

There are two ways to check your C-IAYT recertification date:

  1. Go to the iayt.org website.  Sign in with your username and password.  Go to your profile.  Scroll down and you will see your C-IAYT Award Date.  Add 3 years for your recertification date.
  2. Look at your C-IAYT certificate and you will see your C-IAYT Award Date on the certificate.  At the bottom of the certificate you will see that your certification is valid until the end of month, year.

What happens if I miss my recertification deadline
?

If a C-IAYT does not complete the recertification application by the last day within their recertification month their certification status is changed to lapsed.  The C-IAYT will no longer enjoy C-IAYT benefits and will have to pay an additional reactivation fee in addition to the recertification fee.
