    Yoga for Arthritis Level III Certification Training

    with Dr. Moonaz

    This is Yoga for Arthritis's first Level III training online!

    In this course, participants will learn about advancements in the field of yoga research as it pertains to arthritis, as well as developments in the recommended management of arthritis. We will also expand on material covered in the Level I training and present emerging concepts and opportunities available for returning teachers. Participants will have an opportunity to learn from one another to hone their skills.

    The Yoga for Arthritis Certification Course (now Level III) is offered for teachers who have completed Level I and the Mentored Practicum (now Level II).

    Successful completion leads to a three-year designation as a certified Yoga for Arthritis teacher. Yoga for Arthritis (YFA) is member school of the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT) and an Approved Professional Development (APD) Course provider. YFA programs count for IAYT Continuing Education and as modules and/or transfer credits for some 800-hour Yoga therapy programs. Please contact YFA or your yoga therapy school with questions regarding YFA credit and its role in your current yoga therapy training.

    Yoga for Arthritis Level I Training with Dr. Moonaz

    Yoga for Arthritis was developed by yoga researcher and arthritis expert Steffany Moonaz, PhD, along with an interdisciplinary team, including rheumatologists, psychologists, public health researchers and yoga therapists. Combining ancient yoga practices with modern medical knowledge, this program offers modifications to address the unique abilities and limitations of persons with arthritis. In a 7-year randomized clinical trial at Johns Hopkins University, the program’s participation was associated with improved arthritis symptoms, physical fitness, psychological functioning and quality of life. Such evidence is vital for bridging the integrative yoga world with medical healthcare, making these practices more accessible to those who really need them.
