1. Do you see an advantage in have more enhanced yoga credentials?

Yes, if there is a need for them. An example would be a prenatal yoga certification or a kids yoga teacher course. Any specialized yoga teacher training should match the niche.

2. What are you looking for in a Yoga teacher association?

I'm looking for an organization without a bunch of strict rules and it would be nice if the rules remained fairly consistent. I want an organization that is practical and consistent in rules and policies.

3. What do you dislike about Yoga teacher associations?

Like once I know the rules I don't want to see them changed every year. Sometimes the requirements are impossible to meet. Huge amounts of contact hours are okay, but why do they have to be in one place.

4. What's an ideal Yoga teacher credential?

No such thing. It's a myth. I agree with Lea "It is the right of any school to refuse an outside yoga teacher credential. You could have a 1000 hour yoga teacher training be rejected by a school that teaches 24 techniques."

5. What's an ideal Yoga teacher association?

An honest organization without a bunch of dogma that accepts qualified yoga teachers with years of teaching experience.
