Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

CPD is a requirement of AAYT Membership

CPD supports both practitioners and clients by ensuring that the Yoga Therapist maintains his/her skills and knowledge, and aims, at all times, for ‘best practice’. CPD also provides avenues for practitioners to broaden their skills and knowledge into specialty areas that may be of particular interest.

The AAYT CPD Policy requires all members to complete a yearly minimum of 4 points. Points must be relevant to the field of yoga therapy, and not just yoga in general. More details about accruing these points are included in the CPD form below.

The AAYT CPD form must be completed by members and submitted at membership renewal each year.
