It will not be easy to rate yoga teacher training courses accurately. Someone is always hacking into sites. This alters the validity of online voting, unless software is designed to count an IP only once.

In yoga courses that are physically oriented, there should also be a rating of teacher graduates for safety. In other words - we know specific styles that produce (yoga fitness) instructors who take too many chances with student safety.

Also, some teachers from specific styles are trained to be like their guru. This can be good and this can be bad. There is no need to make more copies of an arrogant guru. We need kind and understanding gurus. What are the testing criteria if a student/intern is paying to be a teacher, but doesn't practice yama or niyama? Does money make up for a lack of caring yoga teachers?
