For the most part, I agree with you ashpoo. But I disagree with three points.
About your yoga teacher giving up his job and his car to teach yoga - I completely disagree. Maybe he doesn't have a family, or a care in the world, but I do. I need the car to get to my jobs and bring groceries home for the kids. I need jobs (more than one) to keep my apartment. My landlord is nice, but he would throw my family on the street if I don't pay the rent.
Also, about biology - Good yoga teacher training courses teach anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology, but biology is a science of life and living organisms, including their evolution, structure, function, growth, origin, and distribution. I suppose you could include human biology in a yoga certification course, but anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology should really help yoga teachers to be safe.
Chairs in Yoga classes - They exist in restorative, Iyengar, chair yoga and yoga therapy sessions. Does that mean I'll see one in a Bikram class? No, but that style doesn't use any props.
