      direction of Professor Buhrman, opens the door for any diligent 
      student to explore the vast therapeutic potential of the Yogic 
      tradition in a contemporary context. After graduating, I came back to 
      my small Midwest town and was immediately employed as the resident 
      Yoga Therapist in the local Integrative Medicine Clinic."-- Matthew

      Who May Attend
      Registered or certified Yoga teachers, health care professionals with 
      substantial yoga asana experience, and trainees in 500-hr Yoga or 
      Ayurveda programs. Our instructors for this intensive represent 
      several different traditions of teaching; and participants from all 
      Yoga traditions are welcome. Please include 1) a copy of your 200-hr 
      YTT certificate, 2) a resume, and 3) an application letter documenting 
      your qualifications along with your registration fee.

      Program Certification

      RMIYA will award a 300-hr Yoga Therapy Certificate to all participants 
      who complete this training. No certifications will be given until all 
      assignments have been completed. Transcripts of all completed courses 
      are available on request from the Rocky Mountain Institute of Yoga and 
      Ayurveda. A 375-hr Yoga Therapy Certification will be awarded when 
      participants have completed both this intensive and The Yoga of the 
      Heart Cardiac Yoga training with Nischala Devi, which is offered 
      approximately four times per year in various locations. Information on 
      this training can be obtained at www. abundantwellbeing. com

      Application of Yoga Therapy Hours toward
      500-hr Yoga Teacher Training

      RMIYA is careful to distinguish between advanced Yoga teacher training 
      (advanced training in the practices and philosophy of Yoga and 
      teaching methodology which allows the teacher to teach intermediate 
      and advanced practices of Yoga sadhana), and Yoga Therapy training 
      (which is focused on using the practices of Yoga for the purposes of 
      healing and requires a great deal of specialised training which is 
      entirely different from that of a Yoga teacher). The first session of 
      the Yoga therapy training, approximately 140 hours, may be counted 
      toward our 500 hour Yoga Teacher training program, because it is 
      applicable to both Yoga teachers and Yoga therapists. The second 
      session, which is entirely focused on disease management, is not 
      applicable to the 500-hour certification.

      In some of our trainings, however, a 500-hr program may run 
      concurrently with the Yoga Therapy training. In this option, students 
      also meet 6:30-10:30 am. each morning of the Yoga Therapy Training, 
      for specific training in intermediate and advanced practices of Yoga. 
      One additional training period of approximately 8 days is then 
      required for a certification as a 500-hr teacher.
