The Academic Course (or equivalent*) constitutes pre-requisite for the other two courses which can be taken interchangeably.

The curriculum is delivered in synchronous format (a mix of in-person and online classes), supervised by lead instructor Sonia Sorrenti, E-RYT500, C-IAYT, with the participation of highly-qualified healthcare providers who will present on biomedical topics and facilitate discussions.

The successful completion of all three course (800-hours) will be awarded the final Yoga Therapy Certificate.

* Transfers from other yoga therapy schools are evaluated on a case-by-case basis and will be admitted to the Research and Teaching Assistant and Hospital-Based Clinical Rotation Courses depending on placement availability. Students graduating from the Academic Course have priority over transfer students.
