Namaskar Vanessa,

Point taken, but I'm surprised by your post. There is a ring of truth in all of your statements, but I did not expect it from you. Like all organizations, the bigger you get the more chance you have of hurting someone. In this case, they have created a negative relationship with most yoga teachers.

I don't understand the reason for changing rules so often. I don't think the founders of Yoga Alliance intended the exact direction they are going in. And I don't feel there is a conspiracy or organized agenda against yoga instructors.

That said, certification is enough to teach yoga classes. There are a few elitist studios who require all instructors to be RYTs, but that isn't a guarantee of competence for all of the reasons you mentioned above.

However, we could use another kinder, friendly, and yogic registry organization, which produces helpful literature for yoga teachers.

Om Shanti,
