Namaskar Everyone,

Seriously, think about this for a minute. People sue for everything these days! The coffee is too hot, their doctor looked at them the wrong way, or a guy asks them out. I'm surprised nobody has sued Bikram for harrassment, grabbing and jumping on chests, or heat stroke, but some day it's in the cards for him. Some student is going to want a cut of his riches. Unfortunately, if you're going to teach yoga you need to be certified because it proves that you care about your students. A certification that requires continuing ed is going to stand up better than a one size fits all life time member to nothing. Your liability insurance is only going to back you up when you cross your T's and dot your I's. Insurance companies don't like to pay for anything! If you leave a loophole open, you are one leg down. This isn't the old days any more. Registration is fine, but the registries don't stand up for teachers. They take money and nobody knows them and they don't know us. And if you are registered but not certified you try explaining that to a judge if you're being sued for negligence.
