Yoga Integrated Science™ raises the bar in education in order to deal with a human body.

Yoga Integrated Science is also an IAYT (International Association of Yoga Therapists) Member School– an organization that bridges the gap between Yoga and Healthcare.  We are currently pursuing accreditation with IAYT for Yoga Therapy.  Lauren Eirk is a C-IAYT, Certified Yoga Therapist

Yoga-IS-Logo_-Teacher-Training_-Color“I hardly know where to begin describing my experience with Yoga IS… The 200 Hr Teacher training literally changed how I personal train clients, prepared me to teach others their yoga practice and how to become stronger inside and out and be kind to the body. The instructor, Lauren Eirk presented the class in such a way that it was relatable to women and men with lots of ego. After her teaching I am proud to say I have a yoga practice and that I educate my classes as she has taught me. Best money I’ve spent for personal growth ever!”
