I love this horrible Yogis thread! With respect to a 30 day course for a yogini who wants to become a yoga teacher it is hard to make a general statement. If a teacher trainee has 20 years of experience as a student under a competent guru this is different from someone who never took a class. My point is you can't paint all yoga programs or teachers with the same brush. Every intern has a different level of previous study. This is how interns should be addressed - as individuals. Also, some interns shouldn't pass the first time. It may require more study in the yoga teacher training than others.

One more point - I think ashpoo meant to write "anatomy" instead of biology. Anatomy teaches us to understand how the body works. You don't need to dissect a corpse to know how it works. That's one of the things you might learn in human biology.

Human biology also encompasses:

Genetic variation across human populations, present and past

Biological variation related to climate and other elements of the natural environment

Determinants, across populations, of risk for degenerative or infectious disease

Human growth and development
