PYTI is a Charter School of the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). PYT and its Certificate Program is not a general yoga therapy school, but a specialty of practicing yoga in and as medicine. Proponents of the PYT Method also identify it as medical therapeutic yoga.
PYT graduates, by legal scope of practice, are more than yoga therapists or yoga teachers because they are legally bound to their patients by their practice act(s). Their ability to assess and prescribe yoga as medicine allows them to operate under their scope of practice, and that of the PYT Certificate program. As a result, accreditation and credits earned through the PYTI program exceed those created by IAYT or Yoga Alliance, and therefore render the “yoga therapist” or “RYT” designation as unnecessary.
PYT is a school which teaches medical therapeutic yoga. It is a graduate and postgraduate level medical program and therefore supersedes the need for Yoga Alliance recognition and also does not fall into the general lay (nonmedical) yoga therapy program categorization provided by IAYT.
