Yoga Therapy Specialty Certificates

Specialty Certificates are designed for those students who have graduated from an SCHYS, other IAYT accredited C-IAYT program, or have an RYT-500 and are working with the target population. SCHYS graduates have priority access to these programs, which are limited to 12-participants. Students in non-SCHYS programs will be required to take a Bridge Program which consists of online classes so that they better understand how SCHYS approaches designing and implementing practices given for yoga therapy purposes.

Pre-Requisites:

Most of our Specialty Certificates are designed for those with a C-IAYT from SCHYS looking for Continuing Education Credits. Students with an RYT500-from SCHYS (or currently enrolled in Step 1 or beyond), may be accepted to a Specialty Program with permission. Those students who have their RYT-500, or C-IAYT from non-SCHYS Program, and are currently working with the target population of students addressed in the Specialty Certificate may apply and will need to take the Bridge Program.

  • All applicants, including SCHYS student applicants should have completed the Bridge Program (Online classes: Philosophy 1, Course Planning 1, 2, 3, & 4 ).

Students must be proficient in English, have reasonably good computer skills (be able to use an online platform for online classes), and access to a working computer with fairly recent software.
