Good points mentioned above. Let's think about this. All of those alliances are real, but they register. You need certification to a point because beyond your training to be a yoga teacher you want some formal recognition of time you put in training to be a yoga teacher besides all the years of being a student. This gives a record of you taking the time to go through a yoga certification program and learn to be safe. If you want insurance you have to have a liability form. These are all legal steps to protect you and your students. In the case of Yoga Alliance, since they dropped the ball more than once (VA and NY) do you really think they would come to your defense if you were a registered yoga teacher? Has any body ever asked to see proof of registration? Do schools hire outside of their own circle? Do Kripalu yoga studios hire teachers from Bikram? Once in a blue moon, but it's all an illusion. Once in a blue moon you might need a RYT card. Maybe.
