The Yoga for Arthritis Certification Course is offered for teachers who have completed the Yoga for Arthritis Teachers Intensive course and have a total of 40 hours of experience with students in this field and related work or study.* In this course, participants will learn about advancements in the field of Yoga research as it pertains to arthritis, as well as developments in the recommended management of arthritis. We will also expand on material covered in the Teachers Intensive and present emerging concepts and opportunities available for returning teachers. Participants will have an opportunity to learn from one another to hone their skills.
Successful completion leads to a three-year designation as a certified Yoga for Arthritis teacher. Yoga for Arthritis (YFA) is member school of the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). YFA programs count as modules and/or transfer credits for some grandparenting and 800-hour Yoga therapy programs. These credits may also count as IAYT continuing education at some point in the future.
