Mubarak ho,

Anyone can learn any form of yoga. Anyone can teach others yama, niyama, japa, yantra, pranayam and asan. Who says you need to be certified to teach yoga to others. You can of course choose to expand your mind, but who would stop you from teaching others. Only one thing can do this. That is the jiva within you. You can prevent yourself from doing anything. In this modern time, people need certification for insurances. This I can understand. But the form of Yoga is chosen by your heart. Maybe the form of yoga you teach was chosen for you before this life. Additionally, if your passion is bhakti, it is hard to teach asan in a hatha yoga school. Like wise if my passion is exercise, it may be difficult for me to see the value in Patanjali yoga and attaining samadhi.

Apna khayal rakhna,
