A Pioneer in the Field of Yoga Therapy
Integrative Yoga Therapy is a pioneer and leader in therapeutic Yoga teacher training programs. We are dedicated to bringing the ancient insights of Yoga into mainstream wellness programs based on a vision of health as a unity of body, mind and spirit. The IYT experiential approach to learning allows students to integrate in-depth information through a creative process resulting in a uniquely personal experience. IYT students bring Yoga based wellness programs into a wide variety of settings, including general wellness, senior wellness, prenatal Yoga and Yoga for specific health challenges such as back pain, heart disease, cancer and auto-immune conditions.

IYT teacher training programs give students the skills, insights and practice to bring Yoga into mainstream life in ways that are inspiring, enjoyable, safe and easily accessible. The koshas, the five dimensions of being, within Yoga philosophy form the foundation of the IYT journey of healing. Through a wide range of assessment tools and Yoga techniques students learn to facilitate balance at physical, energetic, psycho-emotional, intuitive and spiritual levels.
Through its Affifliate teachers, IYT offers Yoga Alliance registered 200-hour training programs throughout the US, Canada, Mexico and select locations worldwide. Programs are offered in a residential/intensive format as well as non-residential. Find out more, and see when a training starts near you.

What Students Are Saying About IYT
"I felt I got a very solid foundation in anatomy, physiology, working with specific injuries, emotional issues, and diseases (the whole gamut), Chakra work, working with Koshas and Vayus, meditation, pranayama, imagery, yoga nidra, as well as an introduction to the use of Ayurveda in teaching yoga, ,…I feel like I could go on and on. Basically, I have yet to meet a client where I did not know where to start-that all comes from the IYT training. We did A LOT of hands on work, we developed programs with support and assistance, plus they pool all of the programs at the end of the training, and share the outlines. Each training, I went home with an arsenal of already established 8 week programs for many typical client issues (heart disease, anxiety, knee pain, infertility, insomnia…). I have modified most, but they are great starting points."

"The depth of Yoga tools and physiology taught in this course is difficult to describe. I am taking home an understanding of Yoga concepts that brings one far beyond the physical aspects of the conditions of humanity."
- Cherie K.
"The program had a great way of building on my previous knowledge without excluding my yogic lineage. I love the way all of the parts come together for a very organized way of creating a therapy program for any condition. I feel such gratitude for all of this knowledge."
