What Are The Different Yoga And Yoga Therapy Certifications? (And Is Breathing Deeply Part Of The Yoga Alliance and/or the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT)?

More on the IAYT:  Is Breathing Deeply Accredited By The IAYT?

We are an International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) member school and are currently in the application process of becoming an 800 hour IAYT accredited program. We anticipate being fully accredited in 2017. Our foundations course is an integral part of our full 800 hour program and is also offered as a stand alone. Our 800 hour program will be the foundations course plus 7 residential 8-day retreats at the Garrison Institute in New York. These 8-day sessions can be taken over a 2 year period, but can be extended over more time.

This process is lengthy and currently we are in the administrative review phase. Stay tuned!

Will I be able to work with clients at the end of the foundations program and more specifically, call myself a Yoga Therapist?

Absolutely. The Breathing Deeply Foundations program gives you the skills and support you need to practice yoga therapy. If you are certified by our school then you have taken the course and have demonstrated the capacity to provide yoga therapy. As of this writing, you may call yourself a Yoga Therapist in the all 50 U.S. states and in Canada.

The 800 hour program certifies you a higher level. It demonstrates your capacity to work with clients with a more thorough knowledge base. The 800 hour level is currently the highest level of education for practicing yoga therapy.

I have a 200 hr YTT, how many hours approximately would this training be?

The first level (foundations program) is our online program, 3 weekend retreats, and live sessions. This allows you to use the BDYT Yoga Therapist Certification. It isn’t seen as “hours”, but might be in the 250 hour range. You can start confidently seeing private clients using this credential and putting your knowledge to work.

Our 2nd level is an 800+ hour training – 500 residential hours in Garrison, NY plus the online course and mentored practicum.
____________________

What will the case studies look like in the foundations program?

The foundation program requires 2 clients. The minimum is 6 sessions/client (12 sessions total as a minimum). These practicum hours can be done in your area with anyone in need.

How much time should I expect to put into the foundations program once I enroll and how long does it take to complete the foundations program?

Most people take 18-24 months to complete. The fastest one would be able to fully complete our program is 15 months.
Each lesson varies in terms of the content and length. Most run anywhere form 15 minutes to 45 minutes, sometimes looking like 30 minutes of lecture and another video/practice that is attached to this lecture material. These are self-paced, so you might schedule yourself to watch one per week or decide on a faster or slower pacing. One of Brandt’s superpowers (which is strongly executed in the foundations course, is his ability to distill ancient broad (sometimes complicated) information into real-life, clear and cohesive concepts.
So, you might decide to put an hour or two into it/week, (watch one lesson and do the corresponding coursework) or you may decide to spend more time on it. One more thing that might be useful, is that the practices being taught will likely be woven into your personal practice, so that will take some awareness (and time).

What is a BDYT Campus?

A BDYT Campus is a physical location (usually a yoga studio) where you can take our program. You still participate in our online foundations course while moving through the program with a group of fellow (local) yogis, gathering monthly.

Is the certification good worldwide?  (Similar to my Yoga training) 

Yes. We currently have several students that live in Canada and will work as Yoga Therapists once they’re certified. (As an aside, we are in the process of expanding our program to offer 2 levels of training. Both levels (BDYT and the 800 hour are useful internationally.)

How much money do Yoga Therapists make?

It depends on where they live and how they choose to work. Many Yoga Therapists run programs at schools, hospitals, rehab centers, etc… The pay varies. In private practice, rates tend to be equivalent to other helping professions (Therapists, Massage Therapists, etc…).
