This fall we shall be launching Give Back Yoga University (GBYU), a continuing education platform for yoga teachers, yoga therapists, and healthcare professionals. Our virtual campus brings together students, teachers, and activists from nonprofit organizations, public sector institutions and academic institutions who work to forward the use of evidence-informed yoga interventions. 

We offer a rich library of specialist trainings, classes, and other resources to empower you with the knowledge, skills, and tools to bring the therapeutic benefits of yoga to individuals facing mental and physical illness and systemic bias and prejudice.

The International Association of Yoga Therapists has championed yoga as a healing art and science since 1989. Yoga therapists and other yoga professionals, healthcare practitioners, and researchers from all backgrounds and perspectives are invited to join IAYT to help support the organization’s mission of establishing yoga as a recognized and respected therapy.

IAYT encourages high professional standards by accrediting yoga therapy training programs and certifying individual practitioners. We sponsor research and education to advance the field of yoga therapy through our publications (the peer-reviewed International Journal of Yoga Therapy and the clinical practices magazine Yoga Therapy Today), as well as through conferences (the research-oriented Symposium on Yoga Research and the practitioner-oriented Symposium on Yoga Therapy and Research). IAYT also advocates for broad access to yoga’s transformational practices through our publicly oriented materials at yogatherapy.health.

Yoga Australia is a voluntary, not-for-profit association, incorporated in 1999 (originally known as the Yoga Teachers Association). It was originally founded by a group of independent yoga teachers who recognised the need to bring yoga teachers together from all different traditions, styles and backgrounds, to provide mutual support and professional recognition of yoga in Australia.

Today Yoga Australia is recognised as the peak body for Yoga in Australia. We strive to support our fellow yogis and ensure the sustainability and longevity of our industry in this country and around the globe.
