Kind Attention kamalsurana,
You are 100% correct that someone could teach in Canada and the United States without certification, but there are reasons why people become certified in North America.
1. Liability insurance and defense from possible legal problems. Much like the UK, North America has legal entanglements. It makes life simple to be covered, when a teacher is certified and insured.
2. Your students respect the certification process. It shows that you have taken a serious step in education, when you become a certified yoga teacher.
3. It is easier to find work, because many places ask for a yoga teacher diploma.
So, is Pauljee's diploma worth the 240 hours of studying? You could visit his testimonial section.
This is four pages full of real and satisfied yoga teacher feedback. But let me tell you honestly that you will be satisfied from the foundational knowledge you will learn. Nobody that I know of gives a guarantee for yoga teacher training. Many gurus will take 3, 6, or 10 thousand dollars worth of your hard earned money with no guarantee at all. They will not teach you about business, but they know much about business.
If their students don't like it - too bad. And they don't lose any sleep over it no matter how many students that don't like it. To make a guarantee shows me an honest man. To belong to the BBB with no complaints against Aura shows me the same. The more you visit these Aura sites, the more honesty you will see. I wish you much luck on your journey my friend.
