CE Guidelines and Registration

Please read all iRest Institute Continuing Education (CE) guidelines below before beginning CE registration.

*Please do NOT complete CE registration if you are only needing CEs for Yoga Alliance (YA) or the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). iRest Institute offers CEs for YA and IAYT at no additional charge and no pre-registration is necessary.

For in-person and livestream events: Registration and payment must be made at least 2 weeks prior to the event in order to receive one CE Certificate for your primary license (PSY, RN, LCSW, MFT), for a fee of $100.

For the Online iRest Level 1 Training through Yoga International: Please register and pay for professional Continuing Education credits ($100 fee) as soon as possible after completing the course and within two weeks post-completion. You may also register and pay in advance of your completion. Please note that we require a copy of your Certificate of Achievement (available for download on your course page once you've completed the course) to be sent to info@irest.org. 

If you have additional licenses for which you need secondary certificates, you may request them by contacting the iRest Institute Office at info@irest.org for details and instructions for paying the $25 fee for each additional filing.

The CE Registration webpage allows you to register and pay for professional Continuing Education (CE)* credits available at Level 1 and 2 iRest Yoga Nidra Trainings for psychologists (PSY) nationally, California licensed LCSW, LPCC, LEP, and LMFT's, and nurses registered by the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN Provider CEP16887). CE credits may be available for license renewal for other health professionals in other states in the U.S., however it is up to each participant to confirm with their state governing bodies if the CE credits of any course meet their state licensure requirements. 

Attendees requesting professional CE must attend all sessions to receive CE. At in-person events, participants are responsible for signing in and out of the program as instructed each day. Participants are equally responsible for attending all sessions in full during livestream trainings, where attendance is closely monitored and tracked. iRest Institute is not responsible for missed hours and cannot grant partial credit.

Kripalu iRest Training participants can register for PSY, MFT, & RN CEs using the link above. Social Worker CEs will be offered by Kripalu and social workers can register directly through Kripalu.

All Level 1 and 2 Training participants receive a certificate of attendance that lists the number of CEs offered for the training and can be submitted to Yoga Alliance and other agencies that accept a certificate of attendance as verification of CE credits. In addition, Level 1 and Level 2 participants will receive an IAYT-specific attendance certificate should they choose to submit it for IAYT CE credits. All remaining professionals (PSY, MFT, LCSW, RN) who pre-register and submit $100 payment to iRest Institute shall receive an additional certificate from iRest Institute as verified through the Spirituality Competency Resource Center (SCRC) upon completing a CE Evaluation Form at the end of the training.

To register for CEs, refer to the link in the confirmation email you received when you registered for the event.


Reminder: Attendees requesting professional CE who live outside of California are responsible for contacting their home state licensing organizations to see if there is reciprocity. iRest Institute is not responsible for the decision of licensing boards that lie outside the state of California.



* CE credits for psychologists are provided by the Spiritual Competency Academy (SCA) (www.spiritualcompetency.com) which is co-sponsoring this program. The Spiritual Competency Academy is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. The Spiritual Competency Resource Center maintains responsibility for this program and its content.

California Board of Behavioral Sciences accepts CE credits for LCSW, LPCC, LEP, and LMFT license renewal for programs offered by approved sponsors of CE by the American Psychological Association.

LCSWs, MFTs, and other mental health professionals from states or provinces other than California need to check with their state or province licensing board as to whether or not they accept programs offered by approved sponsors of CE by the American Psychological Association.

SCA is approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN Provider CEP16887) for licensed nurses in California.
