Professional 800-hr Yoga Therapy Certification Course

Our 800 hour professional Yoga Therapy Certification Program is accredited by the IAYT. It was built on the intention of bringing together the leading teachers in the spheres of yoga & ayurveda into one cohesive training program. Our program honors the teachings from a variety of yoga and spiritual traditions and ties those teachings together into a solid framework, empowering our trained yoga therapists to serve the unique individuals who seek their help.

As a modular program, students can work toward their full path of an 800-hour certification over the duration of 3-6 years, giving them time to incorporate skills and gain practical experience. Many students have entered our program while still working other careers and transitioning into the life of a professional yoga therapist, making the flexibility of navigating the learning path over the course of several years appealing.

Students entering our professional Yoga Therapy Certification program must already be Yoga Teachers with a minimum of 1 year teaching experience. At the completion of our program, graduates are eligible to achieve their professional Yoga Therapy (C-IAYT) certification with the IAYT.
