  • Does This Mean I Will Be A Registerd RYT Yoga Teacher?
    I'm aware some of you have wanted the RYT credentials along with the CYP-500. I've registered our program with Yoga Alliance and have been approved for a 200 RYS. We were the 108 school to be accredited with trauma. If you are interested in these credentials, there are some extra steps to take and a cost associated with that at the end of your training. There will be administrative costs, registering the schools and time associated with overseeing this aspect of the program. There is a time limit that the online training has been approved for. We are approved to offer this online through the end of 2024, but they are unclear if they will allow the online beyond that time. The bottom line: If you are considering it, you will want to register NOW if you want this credential. We may need to limit how many students we will allow to take advantage of this opportunity if the administrative end gets overwhelming for us. We are in new territory, so we don't know what this looks like time wise on our end. Everyone who has graduated from CYI has the opportunity to choose a 200 RYT track with additional teaching hours. We have authorization until 12/2024, so you will get to be complete by then or risk not being able to take advantage of this. As we move forward this price may increase, depending on the amount of time it takes on our end to provide feedback and support. When you register with Yoga Alliance, there may be additional hours or requirements on their end. They have changed back and forth about teaching hours, but those hours would be after you officially graduate with us and in the past they haven't allowed hours already taught to be counted. We can't control or know what they will need you to do as we only know the school requirements and the length of time we are authorized to do this. We are not offering refunds if you drop the course path. To learn more about Yoga Alliance and RYT go to I hope you're able to utilize the training and that it's making a difference in your health and wellness! See you soon.
  • What Are The Benefits To This Type Of Training?
    SPECIFICITY: This training is intended to educate the medical, clinical, and mental healthcare community and the populations they serve. Rather than focusing on adult gymnastics, our training is about the underpinnings of yoga and the subtle movement that almost anybody can perform. We offer the specific movement therapists would need such as chair yoga, trauma sensitive movement, teaching clients to use appropriate breathing techniques outside of their appointments and using meditation to overcome compassion fatigue for the therapists. MINIMUM TIME FOR MAXIMUM EDUCATION: The online training allows accelerated education. I’ve facilitated yoga teacher trainings for more than 12 years. This training allows for the maximum amount of training in the most condensed time frame.
  • Will I Have The Ability To Teach A Yoga Class Outside Of Clinical Practice?
    All students who follow the curriculum, complete the online content with the training manual and attend contact hours of training will have an exceptional understanding of yoga and be more than prepared to teach a public yoga class as well private sessions to their clients. This clinical training I have developed is the same training that many of the leading teachers have taken from me and gone on to become exceptional teachers in their field. The addition to this training is the accent on trauma, mindfulness for therapists and chair yoga. In order to become CYP-500, you will need to complete all assignments on time, attend all sessions and demonstrate understanding of the material provided at the training.

    Included in the program: CEUs, contact weekends, online training, 350 page training manual, workshops (including energy management for mental health professionals, trauma sensitive, the difference between trauma and PTSD, pranayama breathing techniques, meditation techniques and more) during the contact weekends.
