Hi Everyone,

Can someone explain why the yoga alliance can make policies, when we don't need them. I have been to their site and I get a feeling of being in the grasp of corporate control. The site is difficult to understand. The rules and regulations seem like lawyers wrote the text. And when you look at the site it feels like a corporate reception room.

My Ajna chakra is working overtime. It's been said that the eye of intuition, gazes inward and outward. And Ajna opens awareness within and outside the mind. This would be another signal for us to learn from. Don't ignore your gut instincts. If an organization creeps you out why would you join?

So I ask any of you who joined the yoga alliance - why did you do it?! It's important for me to get a grasp of the reason for joining. Ds anybody see what I see? YA is full of kid teachers who trip over their egos. What are the options for a professional reliable yoga teacher organization?

Ds anybody know of any other open yoga teacher communities like this one. I like the feeling of community I get here. And i'm willing to pay for joining a teacher association, but not a group that's out to alienate everybody else.

Love to hear your opinions.
