Thank you for mentioning this. People will be people no matter what any of us do. Some mean well, while others don't mean so well. Evidently the organizers of the "advanced" yoga teacher training course you mentioned could use an elementary lesson about Yama and Niyama.
It is often said, "Yoga is about unity," but why do we have so many styles and so much snobbery? Sadly, those who practice yoga snobbery aren't really familiar with yogic philosophy. It really has nothing to do with distance learning at all. It's just another excuse to inflate the ego. Anyone can see a teacher who constantly works to improve through continuing education is top quality, but there has to be some way to be superior to others.
It used to be color, race, religion, social status, gender, or age could be used as an excuse to play at being better. But now those strategies are "politically incorrect." Now we have creative discrimination to posture ourselves as better than someone else.
Recognize it and enjoy your life. You are better off without the company of egotists.
