This 20hr workshop provides IAYT and YA members continuing education credits of 18hrs and 20hrs respectively. As your facilitator is also a Senior Yoga Teacher, an accredited Yoga Therapist, and a Medicare endorsed Allied Health Mental Health Clinician and Occupational Therapist, most participants can claim hours from the workshop as professional development via their registration/membership bodies.

THIS WORKSHOP IS SOLELY FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND IS NOT A CERTIFICATE PROGRAM: TO BE CERTIFIED IN TCTSY COMPLETION OF THE 300HR TCTSY CERTIFICATION IS REQUIRED. This workshop does not certify the participant in yoga teaching: To be certified to facilitate a 'stand-alone yoga program' or 'solely yoga intervention' , you require yoga teacher training and respective insurance, however short part-components of yoga can be delivered by other professionals within their specific scope of professional practice. 

This workshop is also not intended as an intervention for those who have experienced trauma. Talking about trauma, even in the context of a professional training can be triggering/overwhelming.
