Pranam to All,

Dear Jopis - Thank you for your blessing.

Some points about the need for more instruction.

About continuing education for yoga instructors: It is important for anyone who has taken their yoga training to the teacher level to understand that no single yoga course can provide you with all of the answers.

Even Patanjali would ask you to read more than the Yoga Sutras. Yes, you can read them again and again, but you need to keep learning different material that will help your students.

Yoga certification, which addresses teaching to adults will not educate you for every situation, medical condition, age of student, or ailment. If you can only teach fit yoga students, who are 20 years old, you should teach in a college and warn the faculty and staff that they are too old for you to teach. <img decoding=" title="Laughing" />

I hope you will see my meaning, because it is not meant in a harmful way. A young and fit Yoga teacher will not understand what it is like to be born with a birth defect. What is it like to be old? How could you help someone in a wheel chair? How can I practise yoga after being in a terrible auto accident?

This is why we have continuing education. Not all of your students will be in perfect health. Not all of your students will be like you.

Om Shanti My Friends
