Namaskar Astrid,

You bring up many good points. It's a good experience to recognize good yoga teachers from not so good teachers. In this way, you already know what you would and would not do. But poor yoga teachers can hurt you, so it isn't worth your while to keep training with a teacher who might cause you to be injured.

Your modesty: Keep it because modesty is a beautiful quality, but if you feel you could teach better than some of your teachers you have some thinking to do. You may have a natural talent for teaching yoga.

The right path: There is no single path. All yoga teachers are students for life. We learn everything we can. But it is easier to learn from the mistakes of others. It dsn't hurt as much. Although we never forget our personal mistakes.

Certification is a good start for yoga teachers. In that way, you can begin to develop your teaching skills. Also, you should get sports or yoga liability insurance.

Registration: It's optional in most parts of the world.

Om Shanti,
