I'm on the fence in this issue. Never joined Yoga Alliance during the original grandmothering because my feelings were similar to your at the time. Now that more time has passed I probably never will. This whole RYT thing is attractive to the younger teachers. It's the great equalizer with veteran yoga teachers who have been teaching for decades.
One point to make: We need a good non-discriminating registry and we need more than one. Maybe we need more than two. England has British Wheel of Yoga (BWY), The Yoga Register, and the Alliance. BWY won't accept non-UK members so forget that option. But the Yoga register seems to be a welcoming organization.
Here is a link to the yoga register: https://www.theyogaregister.org/
Another option - We could all petition Paul to open the doors. This Aura yoga community is growing in leaps. A highly touted reputable credential for yoga teachers based on an actual review of your yoga teaching skills is important. The Alliance dsn't even know who they register. They don't know how you teach because they don't require a video exam. They just sign off on what an ERYT says.
