Integrative Yoga Therapy is a pioneer and leader in therapeutic Yoga teacher training programs. We are dedicated to bringing the ancient insights of Yoga into mainstream wellness programs based on a vision of health as a unity of body, mind and spirit. The IYT experiential approach to learning allows students to integrate in-depth information through a creative process resulting in a uniquely personal experience. IYT students bring Yoga based wellness programs into a wide variety of settings, including general wellness, senior wellness, prenatal Yoga and Yoga for specific health challenges such as back pain, heart disease, cancer, auto-immune conditions, anxiety and depression, and more.
"My knowledge of Yoga therapy has moved from the purely theoretical to the deeply practical. I feel as if I am overflowing with wonderful tools, and immensely grateful for the opportunity to put these into practice."
As approaches to health continue to evolve, Yoga will be a primary vehicle for the wellness programs of the future because of its ability to promote health and healing at physical, emotional, and spiritual levels simultaneously. Yoga is already being accepted into mainstream wellness approaches at hospitals, businesses, schools and universities, summer camps for children, drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers, and a variety of other settings. Offering one-on-one Yoga therapy sessions also offers a variety of career opportunities. All of these career avenues require specific training beyond the Yoga teacher level. Integrative Yoga Therapy (IYT) is a vehicle for bringing this new vision of wellness into your life and into your career. Come join us in expanding our vision into the world.
Yoga is taking on a wider role in modern life; an expansion beyond the Yoga classroom into all areas of our community as a vehicle for wellness, healing and personal transformation. Integrative Yoga Therapy is a pioneer and leader for over 15 years in training Yoga professionals who can bring the ancient insights of Yoga into mainstream wellness programs. Our programs are based on a vision of health as a unity of body, mind and spirit. Yoga is a vehicle for deepening this experience of Unity and bringing it into the world as a resource for personal growth, healing and awakening. Over 3,000 students have developed personally and professionally through the IYT training programs.
IYT was founded in 1993 by Joseph LePage, a Yoga teacher in the Kripalu tradition and body-worker whose special focus is energy healing. Chaya met Joseph in 1998, completing the program and continuing to assist and teach for him.
The design of the IYT program developed out of Joseph's studies of traditional healing arts in over one hundred countries as well as studies in India where he lived for two years, together with his masters degree work in experiential education.
"I wanted to create a training program with the focus on Yoga as a healing art which would be student centered, non-dogmatic and in alignment with the latest approaches to teaching, while remaining deeply rooted in the vast treasury of wisdom within the Yoga tradition."
Chaya also continued her studies in Yoga Therapy, studying with TKV Desikechar and Gary Kraftsow in the ViniYoga Tradition of T. Krishnamacharya and the yogic medicine of Ayurveda.
Integrative Yoga Therapy is a vision that brings together Joseph and Chaya's insights through world travel, study of Yoga, Ayurveda, experience in healing arts, and a vision of how to bring these together in a comprehensive and creative educational program.
Integrative Yoga Therapy (IYT) yoga teacher training brings together all of the most powerful yogic tools: asana, pranayama, mudra, yoga nidra, mantra, meditation and ayurveda into a complete package where they can be integrated and utilized for therapeutic classes directed toward specific groups and for one-on-one Yoga therapy sessions.

"Chaya is really gifted at synthesizing and applying information. This is a really useful organizational skill that helps students gain a deeper understanding of the material. She can take a seemingly obscure concept from the Ayurveda/Yogic tradition (a dietary tenant, a verse from the sutras, etc.) and relate it to current day to day life as well as the path of a yoga teacher.
"Chaya teaches asana in a careful and intelligent way. She brings a vast amount of knowledge about the body from her background in dance as well as massage therapy in addition to her decades of asana-it’s a lovely combination!"
"Chaya stands out as a teacher of substance to me. In the age of social media celebr-yogis, she is a breath of fresh air! Her trainings and experience as a yoga teacher/ayurvedic practitioner are vast-from asana to philosophy to anatomy-she has so much to share with students!!"
"She is the kind of presenter who genuinely listens to comments/questions from students.
Her trainings don’t feel like “let me tell you everything I know” -rather, they feel more like a conversation. She skillfully drops breadcrumbs of knowledge and guides students along as they “pick up the trail” of knowledge." Stacey Abbott, YTT Director, Journey's In Yoga, Tallahassee, FL
"Chaya is a gifted and radiant yoga teacher. Her depth of knowledge and experience make her classes interesting, accurate and clear. Her authenticity and spontaneity give her a connection with the group that feels uplifting, safe and effective."
"Chaya has proven her organizational skills through her wealth of training and credentials. She has many years experience as a yoga teacher, trainer and retreat presenter.
Chaya’s presentations were always well structured and organized and her material was easy to absorb."
