      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.

          Who May Attend

          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.

            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

            YTT certificate, 2) a resume, and 3) an application letter documenting

            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.

                for the achievement of deep levels of physical and emotional release,

                Ayurveda programs. Our instructors for this intensive represent

                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.

                    I am really very interested in attending the upcoming 300hr yoga theray program starting in June. I am from South Africa and have completed my yoga teacher training with Ananda Sanga here in SA who are also registered with International Yoga Federation. I am a pharmacist by profession.
                    Can you please give me more info regarding the cost involved and also any possibilities of accomodation whilst i am there as i have no family or friends there .

                    Professional Certification Training
                    Program

                    Offered in two training segments: June 17-July 2, and Aug 4-22

                    "RMIYA's Yoga Therapy Certification Program, under the careful
                    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

                    About the Program
                    This Certification program, now in its eleventh year, offers a unique
                    opportunity for in-depth study with a distinguished faculty of leading
                    Yoga Therapists, each of whom has many years of professional
                    experience. One of the most highly regarded and comprehensive
                    programs in the country, it gives students exposure to important Yogic
                    tools and techniques for bringing healing and well-being to others.
                    This in-depth training allows certified or registered Yoga teachers
                    and health care professionals with extensive Yoga backgrounds to
                    develop the skills necessary to use the knowledge and techniques from
                    all of the limbs of Yoga in a healing context.

                    Students will learn Yoga Therapy diagnostics which include patient
                    intake and assessment from postural and movement perspectives, Yoga
                    psychology, and Ayurvedic perspectives. The cause and development of
                    diseases is studied from both Western and Ayurvedic viewpoints, and
                    relevant research on Yoga therapy methods is presented. The training
                    emphasises Yoga Therapy methods for managing or healing a variety of
                    conditions such as accidents and injuries, muscular skeletal
                    disorders, diseases of aging, metabolic disorder weight gain, and
                    diabetes, allergies and asthma, stress-related illnesses, digestive
                    disorders, cancer, depression and anxiety, other mental and emotional
                    disorders, and spiritual emergence difficulties. Client management,
                    ethics, legal issues, and how to develop referral relationships with
                    medical and other health care professionals will be included.
                    Internship projects will be assigned, and each student will work with

                    are available on request from the Rocky Mountain Institute of Yoga and

                    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.

                      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

                      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.

                        who complete this training. No certifications will be given until all

                        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.

                          who complete this training. No certifications will be given until all

                          participants have completed both this intensive and The Yoga of the 
                          Heart Cardiac Yoga training with Nischala Devi, which is offered

                          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.

                            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.

                              Schedule and Content of Training

                              Morning Sessions
                              The morning sessions will focus on the practices of practices of
                              asana, pranayama, shat kriya, Hatha Yoga mudra, and relaxation. On
                              most days, the first two hours of the morning session will be spent in
                              asana practice, teaching methodology, and practicum in asana teaching,
                              with teachers Jamie Elmer and Derik Purna Eselius.

                              Asana training will encompass both classical and modern methods,
                              methodology and practicum. Use of props, adjustment, and modern
                              methods such as Structural/Iyengar and Ashtanga Vinyasa styles of
                              practice will be complemented by triputi: slow classical vinyasa to
                              attain the union of body, breath, and mind. More advanced poses will
                              be taught and mastered slowly, according to the student?s capacity,
                              with safety in mind. In the last session of the training, advanced
                              classical method of asana with breath retention will be taught.

                              Similarly, on most days, following a break after the asana session,
                              the remainder of the morning session will focus on the theory and
                              practice of pranayama, Hatha Yoga mudra, and meditation. We will
                              review the entire classical Hatha Yoga system, and cover in the first
                              session the nine classical types of Hatha Yoga pranayama, reviewing
                              beginning methods and learning intermediate ones. In the second
                              session, we will learn additional advanced Hatha Yoga breath methods
                              and Raja Yoga pranayamas, which were practiced at the time of
                              Patanjali. A variety of meditation methods will be presented, from
                              Ashtanga Yoga, Hatha Yoga, and Tantra.

                              Students in the 500-hr YTT program will, in addition, attend 1)
                              morning sessions from 6:30-10:30am, during both sessions of the Yoga
                              Therapy program, and 2) an additional one-week training in advanced
                              topics in Yoga. The morning sessions will include training in the
                              following: pranayama review, intermediate pranayama and meditation,

                              typifies Dharmic issues in some way (either negatively or positively).
                              Write a short paper on this character to be presented in the
                              Bhagavad-gita class. What did you learn about ethics, dharma, and

                              3) Practice Teaching Meet individually with one very sincere and
                              committed intermediate Yoga student who wishes to advance on the
                              spiritual path. Assess the person Ayurvedically and structurally and
                              ask about their goals and beliefs. Choose and teach an appropriate
                              asana, relaxation, pranayama and meditation daily practice to that
                              person., explaining your reasons for each choice. Follow up with that
                              person several times; spending at least five hours total working with
                              them. Write a brief report on your assessments, your choice of

                              Additional Evaluated Projects

                              Attend at least one full day of a retreat with a recognised spiritual

                              Ammachi, Anandi Ma, Swami VedaBharati, Swami Satyananda, etc.), if you
                              have never done so before. How did the experience shape your
                              understanding of Yoga and how will it affect your approach to
                              teaching? (Students who wish to instead attend a retreat in a
                              different spiritual tradition should contact the senior faculty member
                              for the training).

                              Daily practice for one week of one of the two Bhakti Yoga methods
                              presented in the Bhakti Yoga portion

                              ability to correctly perform and teach the practices taught in the
                              training
                              The projects described above have been completed
                              Grades have been turned in for each segment of the training, so that
                              transcripts may be maintained for the student?s future use.

                                by many as a Yogic
                                counterpart to Western psychotherapy because of its ability to heal

                                Repetitive strain injuries are increasingly common, both in the
                                workplace and in the
                                world of Yoga, sports, and fitness. Such injuries must be treated
                                with great care in
                                choosing Yoga practices which help, rather than worsen, the condition.

                                diseases, many yoga
                                teachers are unaware of the reluctance of elders, especially frail
                                elders, to take up
                                even simple Yoga practices because they are not young and flexible.
                                This course teaches
                                how to adjust yoga asana and breath practices to help elders achieve

                                provides insight into physical, physiological, and emotional issues

                                All types of depression are not the same, rather they are
                                differentiated by which gunas
                                (Yogic tradition) predominate and which doshas (ayurvedic tradition)

                                    Few yoga organizatios: centres, ashram, studios, academies or yoga associations give the TTC Teachers Training Course in the World. But the certification and diploma is not valid for the World. Many student have diploma or certificate for nothing.

                                    INTERNATIONAL YOGA FEDERATION give the INTERNATIONAL YOGA DIPLOMA and
                                    INTERNATIONAL YOGA CERTIFICATE, valid all over the World, because in the IYF are the serius continental yoga organisations from Europe, Asia, America, Africa and Australia.

                                    The Continental Yoga Organisations, The international yoga organisations, the regional yoga orgasinations and the serius national yoga organisations are member of the only international democratic yoga body in the World.

                                    All the traditions and all the method and styles of yoga have one member in the World Yoga Council of INTERNATIONAL YOGA FEDERATION.

                                    All the students need one diploma or certificates valid in all over the world because they they want some times go to anothers countries. For exemple the Certificate of Registerd by the Yoga Alliance of USA is only valid for United States but is not Valid for Canadian Yoga Alliance, Yoga Alliance of UK , International Yoga Alliance at India or European Yoga Alliance. .

                                    Many persons believe this is international but is not valid. Most of serius Yoga Alliance of the World are member of International Yoga Federation: Yoga Alliance of Europe, U.K. Australia, Canada and Sout America. They meet in democratic way every year.

                                    Democracy is very important for the Global World.

                                        I also agree with development of true yoga certificates from IYF (centrally issued and recognized all over the world). IYF must take strong steps to control and discourage fake and local certification with the emblem of IYF.
                                        Yoga activities must be promoted with highest level of honesty, quality and purification.

                                        Few yoga organizatios: centres, ashram, studios, academies or yoga associations give the TTC Teachers Training Course in the World. But the certification and diploma is not valid for the World. Many student have diploma or certificate for nothing.

                                        INTERNATIONAL YOGA FEDERATION give the INTERNATIONAL YOGA DIPLOMA and
                                        INTERNATIONAL YOGA CERTIFICATE, valid all over the World, because in the IYF are the serius continental yoga organisations from Europe, Asia, America, Africa and Australia.

                                        The Continental Yoga Organisations, The international yoga organisations, the regional yoga orgasinations and the serius national yoga organisations are member of the only international democratic yoga body in the World.

                                        All the traditions and all the method and styles of yoga have one member in the World Yoga Council of INTERNATIONAL YOGA FEDERATION.

                                        All the students need one diploma or certificates valid in all over the world because they they want some times go to anothers countries. For exemple the Certificate of Registerd by the Yoga Alliance of USA is only valid for United States but is not Valid for Canadian Yoga Alliance, Yoga Alliance of UK , International Yoga Alliance at India or European Yoga Alliance. .

                                        Many persons believe this is international but is not valid. Most of serius Yoga Alliance of the World are member of International Yoga Federation: Yoga Alliance of Europe, U.K. Australia, Canada and Sout America. They meet in democratic way every year.

                                        Democracy is very important for the Global World.

                                        The studens of many yoga masters need the INTERNATIONAL YOGA DIPLOMA and
                                        INTERNATIONAL YOGA CERTIFICATE for work in China, in Europe in All the America.
