To become a yoga teacher, 200 hours of training is required. A Certified Yoga Therapist has a minimum of 1000 hours of formal training with a school accredit by the International Association of Yoga Therapists, hands on group and individual experience and extensive documented case studies. Ongoing training is a requirement to maintain certification status.
It was not until 2016 that the official Yoga Therapist Certification programs and governance was launched. This ensures a high standard and accountability to ethical and professional responsibility.
