Study anatomy, course planning, asana technique and theory, adapting for special populations, pranayama, meditation, the bandhas, yogic philosophy and ethics, the history of yoga, ayurveda, the business of yoga (including legal and marketing issues). Perfect if you want to deepen your teaching technique or feel comfortable teaching special populations. An additional 150 hours of independent study are required by IAYT for candidates interested in Certified Yoga Therapist listing.
