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 approximately 1000 hours of accreditation with IAYT. If granted, accreditation will allow you to call yourself an IAYT accredited Yoga Therapist in addition to being an I AM Yoga Therapist. We hope to receive accreditation by the end of 2019. If AYI is accredited, any hours you have already completed will count towards this IAYT designation if you have registered for our Yoga Therapy training prior to accreditation and have not graduated our program.

We strongly recommend a maximum of 3 years for completion. Extensions may be considered on a case by case basis.
