I wanted to stir things up a bit, but it looks more like I was posting flame bait instead. Guess I hit a nerve, eh?
Now, I have run across a few yoga teachers that didn't know what they were doing. In particular I heard about a personal trainer that went to one yoga class, left thinking "well, I can teach THAT", and proceeded to do so at the gym. But almost all that I actually know are certified and competent.
I wouldn't want to go so far as to say certification should be required, but I'd certainly rather have a teacher that has gone through a certification program unless they were taught by a guru or swami in the old school way. Lets face it, in the West yoga is commercial, and while that's not totally bad, it ds make it more likely that someone will enter the field on a lark.
