This is a great topic, because so many Yoga teachers stay on top of their continuing education. It is very noticeable how many Yoga instructors attend when you visit a retreat or workshop. The last time I traveled to the States, I visited Aura and Kripalu, because both were in Massachusetts and we have family on Cape Cod. At Aura it was pesonalised. There was one on one training and i wished that we had stayed longer.
At Kripalu it was fun, but I felt like a small fish in a big pond. On top of that, Kripalu has a ton of rules, such as not talking at breakfast, etc. My husband is not really a Yogi, so the whole Kripalu experience was driving him crazy. He was feeling a bit wonky after days of vegetarian cuisine. One other thing about Kripalu: they don't clearly mark which programs can be used for CECs. Which makes it difficult to track and there are not many ERYT's teaching their Yoga work shops.
I will not be able to convince hubby to go to another Yoga teacher training retreat, so I will have to go alone next time. Yet, there are many new options with Aura for correspondence courses, that will cover me for my non-contact training hours for certification or registration. A course is a bit more beneficial than a book or DVD because it makes you study with more structure.
Namaste and Happy New Year to you and yours,
