Inner Peace Yoga Therapy Training Program

Inner Peace Yoga Therapy was founded in 2009 and began offering 300-hour Yoga Therapy training courses for yoga teachers and health professionals in 2010. As the field of yoga therapy begins to emerge as a recognized profession, the school evolved its new 800-hour curriculum to match the educational standards for the training of yoga therapists as defined by the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT).

Our program is one that honors and includes the teachings from a variety of yoga and spiritual traditions and yet ties those teachings together to provide a solid framework which empowers our trained yoga therapists to work with the unique individuals who seek their help. As a modular program, students can choose to take the full path toward an 800-hour certification or enrich their current yoga teaching credentials with our 300-hour Level 1 course, becoming a Registered Yoga Teacher at the 500 hour level. We believe that our key differentiator is our faculty, which is world renowned and includes the top experts in the fields of yoga therapy and ayurveda, including Nischala Joy Devi, Marc Halpern, Amy Weintraub, Neil Pearson, Durga and others.

Our offerings include the following:

Level 1: Foundations in Yoga Therapy (300 hrs). Sessions held in Asheville NC, Austin TX or Mt. Madonna CA.

Level 2: Applied Yoga Therapy (100 hrs). Sessions held in Durango CO.

Distance Learning Courses: (15 hrs) Delivered live via internet. Topics include Business, Ethics, Building your Practice.

Approved Electives: Up to 200 hours can be taken as electives from specialty schools. Taught by our faculty at various locations, including: Nischala Joy Devi, Amy Weintraub, Neil Pearson, Marc Halpern, Durga & Laura Kupperman.

Mentorship & Practicum: (185 hrs). Our professional mentorship program enables students to get direct feedback on client work, therapeutic classes, research projects and more.
