What training should I choose?

The AAYT has an accreditation program for Yoga Therapy Training Programs. This means that AAYT accredited courses have been recognised by the Association as providing training and learning outcomes that are in accord with the current AAYT Membership and Educational Standards. These Standards are in line with those provided by the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT).

Graduates from an AAYT accredited course are entitled to automatic membership upon satisfactory completion of their studies. As the peak body for accreditation of training in Australia, the AAYT promotes qualifications of the highest standards in order to represent its members professionally.

It is important to know that not all Yoga Therapy Training Programs meet the AAYT Standards.

If you are about to embark on post-graduate training in the area of Yoga Therapy, consider whether your course is an AAYT Accredited Training Program.

Accreditation of Training Programs

Partial or specialist training courses are eligible for the AAYT Course Accreditation. These courses may contribute to a member’s self-assessment application, provide specialist training in particular areas and/or provide Continuing Professional Development.

There are a number of Yoga Therapy Training Programs available in Australasia. As worldwide standards for Yoga Therapy progress, it is increasingly important to have professional accreditation of courses. The AAYT offers accreditation for Training Providers whose Yoga Therapy Training Programs meet the AAYT_Membership & Educational Training Standards

If you embarked on your Yoga Therapy Training (with one of Registered Training Providers registered to our old standards) prior to October 2015 you may be eligible to register with the AAYT under the AAYT Grandfather clause.
