New Process for Submitting Continuing Education Hours

All C-IAYTs are required to complete 24 hours of Continuing Education prior to certification renewal three years after initial approval of there IAYT Certification.  The first of these renewals will occur in 2019.  This policy is one that all applicants agreed to when submitting their original application.  We now have an easy process for you to submit your CE hours so that they are updated on your IAYT profile.

Read the policy and the instructions for CE submission:

IAYT Approved Professional Development Courses!

IAYT will launch a pilot program in the Summer of 2018 to offer IAYT recognition of Approved Professional Development (APD) courses for yoga therapists.  Courses accepted during this initial pilot phase will have a focus on learning and demonstrating a yoga therapy skill with clients.  The purpose of the APD program is to recognize high quality yoga therapy continuing education courses and short specialty programs in a manner similar to what other professional fields do.

We expect this to benefit schools with accredited programs, member schools certified yoga therapists and others interested in offering and taking quality professional education courses in yoga therapy.

Watch for much more on this at SYTAR 2018!
