Don: You appear to have chosen a hot topic. There are many options to choose from, but many teachers in the east do not spend much money on continuing education as is done in the west. We do travel quite frugally and when visiting the ashram of our Guru, we practice seva and pay what we can. As Paulji has stated, there are many teachers who do not have a diploma. This whole idea of wall paper to prove teaching status is quite new, but it is now catching on.

If a yoga instructor can travel to learn from their Guru this is good, but as Parell mentioned she has children at home and it seems she has no one to watch them, nor the money to spend. In some cases, a good Yoga book, DVD, or a correspondence course, will be a solution for continuing education. In India, there is new found prosperity, but there is have a long way to go to be able to afford western prices for Yoga teacher workshops. I can see the prices and then the amazing cost of housing. Many of us would rather bring our own tent. So a DVD is quite reasonable in comparison.
