The Japan Yoga Therapy Society was established in 2003 to professionalize
and promote yoga therapy in Japan.
Our Society became a general incorporated association in 2009.
Through our certification program, we train and provide ongoing education for professional yoga therapists.
In addition, our Society collaborates with the Japan Society for Integrative Medicine (IMJ). Those certified by the Japan Yoga Therapy Society can also be certified as experts in integrative medicine (yoga division) if they pass IMJ’s examination designed for doctors and other medical experts.
The Japan Yoga Therapy Society values collaboration with other organizations with complementary missions and visions. We believe that open communication, sharing information about recent developments, and collaborating in areas such as education, research, and policy all contribute to strengthening yoga therapy as a field.
