In this training your training will be directed by C-IAYT certified Eastern and Western trained Yoga teachers and therapists into the wisdom of the body and the language of energy. Using the chakras as a basis you will learn about the anatomy of energy; how it gets blocked and how to use a very simple facilitation technique to release it.

Using scriptural teachings of the Upanishads, the Yoga Sutras, and unique insights from our Lineage, we will explore the original teachings of Yoga Nidra as an esoteric and ancient mystical practice.

We are currently a proud member school of the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT).

As such, completion of this training qualifies you to be a registered member of the IAYT and to call yourself an IAM Yoga Therapist.

It also means hours you accumulate with our training can be transferred to other IAYT 800 hour programs at the discretion of the school you are transferring to.

The Amrit Yoga Institute itself is in process of seeking accreditation with IAYT. If granted, accreditation will allow you to call yourself  an 800 hour IAYT accredited Yoga Therapist in addition to being an IAM Yoga Therapist. We hope to receive accreditation by the end of 2018. If accredited any hours you have already completed will count towards this IAYT designation.
