Namaskar Friends,

I have to laugh at cracking the whip. <img src=" title="Laughing" /> If that is the case we should love Yoga Alliance because they are the defenders of yoga teachers and they don't crack the whip. :P They just have impractical regulations for a person with a family, job, or responsibility. The Yoga Alliance suits the young teacher wannabees very well. We have all been there: no kids, no job, no school, no respnsibility and your parents paid the bills.

Whoops - I'm talking about my kids. :twisted: My parents threw us from the nest ASAP. :evil: Sorry ex-hippies all of you had to do do it on your own, but at least we can send our kids to an ashram for a few weeks and VOILA they are now RYTs! 8) Bless their little hearts and thank you Yoga Alliance for making it such a nice deal for wonder kids and ex-gymnasts.

Well by now you know, I'm on Donna's side of the fence, but what do we know we're just old fossils like the cronies at YA. The big difference they played pied piper to the little whippers - Uh, I mean RYTs. Yeah, I suppose we needed something like them, but these people need to get a grip. <img src=" title="Wink" /> Who can leave their family, job, etc. and jump over their contact hour hurdles. I'm happy to be out of the club and independent for now. If a good organization comes along without any red tape let me know.
