800 Hour I AM Yoga Therapy™ Program
Transfering from SWIHA?
Welcome to the Amrit Yoga Institute! We are happy to know you are thinking about joining our IAYT Accredited, 800 hour I AM Yoga Therapy™ professional training.
What Will You Get Out of This?
- Make double use of courses that are already in your educational track at SWIHA and get credit for the 800hour Yoga Therapy track too!
- An 800 hour Yoga Therapist carries credibility and distinguishes you among others.
- An IAYT accredited program is respected by both the Yoga and Medical field. IAYT is actively working with the medical field to be able to refer clients to yoga therapy and even bill insurance for yoga therapy. This is not yet realized, but that is the goal. As these become realized, the standards will only become higher.
