Yoga Therapy Practicum Hours for
IAYT Grandfathering Clause
The International Association of Yoga Therapist (IAYT) is currently setting the standards for grandfathering into the organization. These guidelines are emerging and may change over the next few months. Please see their website for more details. In a nutshell, currently the IAYT states the following:
Graduates of 300 hour yoga therapy programs such as Yoga Rx will be required to demonstrate an additional 150 hours of training for grandfathering. Specifically:
a) A minimum of 150 hours of mentored yoga therapy practicum, over and above the 300 hours of training.
b) 150 hour of practical experience as a yoga therapist after the completion of the 300 hours of training.
c) Some combination of a and b listed above, totaling 150 hours.
I am offering several options to fulfill these requirements for anyone who is interested. All of these options are taught in the Tradition of T. Krishnamcharya. They are a wonderful opportunity to go deeply into this tradition of yoga therapy.
We will be renting a lovely outdoor yurt in Camarillo, CA beginning in September, 2013- June, 2014. We will study hard and play hard!

The idea is that each weekend would be 25 hours of practicum. If you completed 6 weekends total, you would have your 150 hours of practicum for IAYT. We are offering 8 total weekends in case you need to miss a few for personal obligations.
One of the goals of this program is to see the same yoga therapy clients over time and see how their yoga practices progresses over many months. For this reason you will be asked to either a) be a yoga therapy client or b) bring a yoga therapy client that is willing to come back over and over. Each person in the program will be asked to participate by bringing us clients/ offering their body and mind for study.
We will see 6 people per weekend, each having a 4-hour block of time. The first 2.5 hours will be hands-on work with the client. The last 1.5 hours will be discussion about how and why we choose specific tools and techniques.
The cost for each weekend is $275 and this includes teachings, lunchtime meal, and facility fee. You will need to put down a $200 deposit to reserve your spot in the 6-month program. You may pay in full at the beginning or pay month-by-month. If you choose to pay month-by-month, please pay the weekend fee 30-day prior to the start of each weekend workshop. If you cannot attend, kindly give 72 hours notice so that another participant can make arrangements to take your spot. In this case, your $275 could be transferred to another weekend of your choice.
If you would like to stay overnight in the yurt it will be an additional $25 per night. You are welcome to stay both Friday and Saturday nights (not Thursday or Sunday). There is a lovely indoor shower and a kitchenette, refrigerator, etc. for you to use if you choose to stay overnight. You can use the pools and hot-tubs in the evening also and make it a little monthly vacation! Please note that both males and females may choose to stay in the yurt together. The shower is a single shower. You will be responsibly for bringing your own bedding, towels and supplies for the weekend. There are no formal beds for our use in the yurt. We ask that you follow the yamas and niyamas if you choose to stay on this lovely property. Please, no alcohol or drugs and respect the surroundings and the wishes of our hosts. It is a sacred place, as you will see when you arrive!
We are limited to 12 people per weekend. So please let us know early if this program is of interest to you.

Amy's new Educational Resource Center
is now online at www.amywheeler.com
Click here to go to www.amywheeler.com
The unique methods of T. Krishnamcharya's Yoga for health, healing and beyond are not well-known to the Western World. Although many serious Yoga students know of his work, the majority of practitioners only casually know his name. I am offering this Educational Resource Center as a way for students to become familiar with the introductory concepts of T. Krishnamcharya's work at a low cost and in an earth friendly way. There are many free offerings to get you started on this journey. Most of these mp3 lectures are live sessions that Amy had taped over the past 5 years. More offerings (free and low cost) will be added monthly, so check back often. We will be adding video by the end of the summer. This is only the beginning of a library that will continue to grow over the next several decades. It is hoped that you will see the wisdom in his teachings, want to go more deeply and then find a teacher in the T. Krishnamacharya Tradition near you and continue your studies for years to come!
I would like to offer you a special workbook for FREE to celebrate the new Educational Resource Center. The workbook goes through Patanjali's Yoga Sutras Chapter I and II and asks you to reflect on 1 sutra per day as part of your daily meditation. The entire process will take 108 days. I would plan to do these 108 meditations as you begin in new journey or endeavor in your life. This process will start you on a path with a positive beginning. Who knows where you will end up many steps from today!
