The yoga therapy components of SEYT programming are based on the director's certifications as yoga therapists, and our faculty member's various certifications/licensure in yoga therapy, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychotherapy, and other healing modalities, not derived from our status as an RYS® with Yoga Alliance Registry.  It should be noted that programming includes understanding and working within the scope of a practice as yoga therapist.  

These parameters include:

  • Yoga therapists provide services, consultation, and conduct research within the boundaries of their competence.  This is based on their education, certifications, and supervised experience. 

  • Appropriate referrals are made to other health care professionals when student/client's needs fall outside the scope of this competence.

  • Yoga therapists never give medical diagnosis to the student/client.  This is the responsibility of a licensed medical practitioner. 

SEYT supports the International Association of Yoga Therapy's (IAYT) current policy on their code of ethics, and scope of practice, and educates our students in accordance with these documents.  IAYT's code of ethics and scope of practice can be found on their website: http://www.iayt.org/news/news.asp?id=283996
