The BCYT is the UK forum for yoga therapy organisations, promoting high standards in the training and provision of yoga therapy. It supports the regulation process provided by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (which is recognised by the Dept. of Health) and promotes yoga therapy to the public, medical profession and other organisations.
By joining the BCYT, aYs is involved in the development of professional yoga therapy standards and the accreditation of yoga therapy training courses by the BCYT. In the future, membership of BCYT allows aYs to run accredited training courses for yoga therapy consistent with our viniyoga approach and which will be nationally recognised as being of a high professional standard.
(NB for aYs yoga therapists – both Paul Harvey’s Practitioner training and Sadhana Mala’s training are recognised as meeting the standards of the BCYT.)
