Yoga Home Study Program

Who can take the IYT Home Study Program? 
The Home Study Program is open to all individuals who wish to deepen their knowledge of and connection to Yoga.

Is the IYT Home Study Program a Teacher Training Program? 
No. Because the Home Study Program is a non-residential course of study, it does not meet Yoga Alliance requirements for teacher certification. 

Can the IYT Home Study Program be applied to 300-hour or 800-hour trainings?
No. This course forms an excellent foundation for those wishing to pursue any of our certification programs. However, it does not qualify as credit hours toward the certifcation programs. 

How much does the IYT Home Study Program cost?
The entire cost of the Home Study is $475.00 (U.S. dollars).

What do I receive with the IYT Home Study Program? 
You receive the Home Study online manual that may be downloaded and printed as PDF documents from this website. Each of the ten chapters contains ‘Study Questions and Exercises’ for you to complete and send to your mentor by e-mail. An experienced mentor will review your work and send you a written evaluation of each module by e-mail. Your mentor is available to respond to any questions by e-mail as they arise during the course of your work.

You also have access to the IYT Student Section of this website which contains a wide range of resources and information, including a reading list, Ayurvedic questionnaires, and holistic health surveys. You receive a username and password upon registration.

How long do I have to complete the IYT Home Study Program?
The Home Study Program is designed to be completed over a one year period, completing one chapter every four to six weeks; however, you have two years from your date of registration to complete the program. If more time is needed to complete your studies, additional processing fees will be charged.

What are the requirements of the IYT Home Study Program? 
In order to receive your Certificate of Completion, you must complete all ten chapters of the program. Evaluation is based on your personal growth and depths of insight in Yoga rather than on writing style and grammar.
