Certified Yoga Therapists

These studies, including an extensive study by the Department of Defense on the effectiveness of Yoga Therapy in treating PTSD, have demonstrated the need for a Yoga Therapy certification program. In 2014, the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) began the process of qualifying schools to certify new Yoga Therapists. Although many schools submitted their application to begin this process, only twelve were approved worldwide, including Ananda School of Yoga & Meditation in Nevada City. Bob Ash, founder of Dev Prayag Yoga Therapy, has become one of the first Yoga Therapists certified under this new program.
