Dear @@first_name@@

This month we are excited to release information about NAMA's 14th annual national conference, April 20-22nd in Plano, Texas, "Ayurveda for a Healthy World." The conference committee has been hard at work developing a diverse and quality program. This year will be structured a little differently than past conferences. It will host three featured presenters, three breakout presenters, and six panel discussions, providing the attendees a well-rounded and nutrient-rich experience. Last year was our best year yet, and we look forward to this year to exceed. We invite you all to attend to learn, grow and experience the love we all have for Ayurveda as a community.

Warmly, NAMA Board and Staff

Now Accepting Grandfathering Applications For NAMA
Recognized Ayurvedic Yoga Therapist (AYT-NAMA)
 
After nearly 5 years of painstaking details and countless hours of discussion, the Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy Standards subcommittee is very happy to report that we have created legitimate standards for Ayurvedic Yoga Therapy.

 

We encourage NAMA professional members (AHC/AP/AD) with long term training in yoga and yoga therapy who teach in NAMA member schools to take advantage of the grandfathering period and become NAMA recognized teachers of our very thorough AYT standards.


Please note, this is not a "certification", but a recognition that the individual meets NAMA's AYT educational standards. NAMA reserves the "certification" label for those individuals/programs that have gone through our NAMA Certification Board's process. That currently only applies to Ayurvedic Health Counselors, and soon, Ayurvedic Practitioners.


We have yet to start accepting applications for AYT program listings because we will only accept applications from those whose main teacher is AYT-NAMA recognized.

 

Warmly,

 

AYT Standards Subcommittee, Arun Deva, Maria Garre, Jennifer Rioux and Amy Wheeler

 

  

        The application process includes the following:  

  1. Choose a pathway:

    • C-IAYT: Those who are already certified yoga therapist by the International Association of Yoga Therapists, may apply for AYT-NAMA recognition.

    • Long-Standing Practice: Those who have been studying yoga for at least 10 years, consistently teaching for at least 5 years, and has taught one-to-one Ayurvedic therapeutic sessions for at least 50 hours may also apply. 


  2. Prepare 3 Case Studies (see the application for format requirements)

  3. Submit application, supporting documentation, and the $25 application fee
