A one of a kind program for yogis looking to truly make a career out of healing
Our one-of-a-kind Orthopedic Yoga Therapy degree meets the stringent requirements of both the Yoga Alliance and the International Association of Yoga Therapists to bring the best possible education to dedicated students.
The IAYT designates this as an 800 hour program (800 hours in addition to your 200 hour certification, or 500 hours to your 500 hour certification). This training does allow for up to 300 transfer hours from other studios if the hours meet the particular criteria towards competency completion.
Courses will be available at Sanctuary Studios, at approved trainings off-site, and via the web. Expect to take at least two years to complete your training.
All applicants must be certified Yoga instructors at the 200 hour level. A strong anatomy background is highly regarded (often massage therapists and bodyworkers will fall into this category).
We seek applicants with a strong leaning towards the therapeutic nature of yoga and bodywork who strive for excellence in the fields of teaching and practice of the healing arts.
Level 1: Transformational Yoga Teacher Training – 200 hours
Level 2: Ritual Vinyasa – 300 hours
Level 3: Orthopedic Yoga Therapy – 500 hours, including mentorship, starts Fall 2016
Our 1000 hour trainings feature a number of required workshops focusing on anatomy and the therapeutic benefits of Yoga, as well as many elective workshops offered year-round. For a full listing, see: Upcoming 1000 Hour Workshops.
