Yoga Therapy 800-hour Course

Coming Soon!

Integral Yoga has developed a Yoga Therapy Certification Program in accordance with the longstanding therapeutic teachings of Sri Swami Satchidananda. The program is currently under accreditation review with IAYT, the International Association of Yoga Therapists.

Until Integral Yoga Therapy is formally accredited, we cannot be certain what the Program will contain in its final form. We are fairly certain, however, that some keystone Integral Yoga trainings will be among the Program requirements (R) for recognition as a Yoga Therapist by the IAYT. In addition, Integral Yoga will require an additional elective (E) to be certified as an Integral Yoga Therapist (IYTh).

An integrated approach to Yoga provides prevention and rehabilitation to a wide range of health concerns:

Pain management
Chronic fatigue
Anxiety and depression
And many more…

Yoga Therapy Training Modules

Even though the Integral Yoga Therapy program is not in its final form, we are certain of the keystone required modules/trainings and the additional electives.
See these modules in the lists below.

If you take one of these modules before the Yoga Therapy program is finalized, you may be able to apply it to the program under certain conditions.


  1. Completion of Adaptive Yoga (Required Module)
  2. Within 5 years, enrollment and acceptance into the Yoga Therapy Program
  3. Within the first 12 months of acceptance, completion of a “mini-apprenticeship” required in coordination with the Home Center mentor

The mini-apprenticeship will require participants to identify a core principle of the training, and then apply that principle in a “practice session” with a friend or colleague in their home geography. That session will then be reviewed by the Home Center Manager/Adviser, and the student will document what they learned from the experience.

The Certification Program module price will be credited to the cost of certification, but this is lower than the pre-Program price to cover the cost associated with the apprenticeship.
