I have been by this thread before, but the obvious escaped me and apparently everone else. Your posts are frank and I admire that. At least, you tell it like it is.
Let's expose the real truth. The facilitator runs a 250 hour Ashtanga and Hatha yoga teacher training course - That's good. You learn to be a good teacher - That's real good. You depend on the studio for a teaching assignment, because nobody teaches you the inside secrets to becoming an independent yoga teacher - That's GREAT FOR THE YOGA STUDIO OWNER!
The real business agenda was getting these people to pay big bucks to get certified to become dependent teachers for that particular yoga center. If graduates know nothing about networking, advertising, marketing, or business, they are up a creek without a paddle. That's great for the teacher trainer, because they still depend on him or her.
From a charitable perspective, these yoga teacher graduates will do much karma yoga for decades before they ever have the courage to ask anyone for tuition. OH NO! Asking for money is wrong - Isn't it?
Let's see: You just spent ten grand to become a certified yoga teacher and you wonder how to make money and you have some kind of guilt baggage about the value of your time. Sorry kid, but you better get in touch with somebody who can coach you. Hint: It will not be the director of yoga teacher training who runs the 250 hour Ashtanga and Hatha yoga teacher training course.
Love and Kisses,
