I agree! There are too many misinformed yoga exercise instructors and the government should have a multi-step plan to take the yoga industry over. Most yoga instructors should be doing another job that they are qualified for, like working at Walmart.
Yes, "yoga exercise instructors" should all be licensed. Yoga exercise instructors should all join the yoga alliance or be banned from practice. This will make it easier for the government to track yoga instuctors. The yoga alliance should not use the words "yoga teacher." The term yoga teacher is too general and allows one to dispense dietary, spiritual, and mental advice.
The terms Guru, Master, and Swami should all be banned. This will prevent charlatans from playing at being a sage, minister, psychic, prophet, doctor, therapist, dietician, or priest. The records of the yoga alliance should be confiscated by Homeland Security and they should merge with a government agency to oversee all yoga instructors. This will prevent religious cults and subversive movements within yoga. Yoga Exercise Instructors should be licensed and regulated to the letter of the law. All of the world's governments should unite to control yoga to prevent the next David Koresh.
