Namaskar Don,

Bet you are surprised at the different reactions. All of the above methods are fine. We do have to budget for continuing education or stay in one place. Ds this mean we have to spend big money to maintain our Yoga certifications?

Not, unless the certifying body you joined demands it. Some re-certification courses are out of sight in price and they don't recognize anything beside their own courses. Others have very flexible policies for recognizing courses outside of the "network." While other Yoga organizations have cost effective choices.

Aura has many choices and I had called up about this before entering any of Paul's Yoga courses. The flexibility, cost, and choice of distance learning or face-to-face training was what I was looking for.

Every year is different - a raise, an IRS audit, a house fire, an illness, a job loss, a new child, marriage, separation, a loved one passes away, or it is just one lucky windfall. These situations are in the background of what we can do. It is wrong to demand that all Yoga teachers be of a specific social status. This will never happen, but it is true that if your students are all materially rich, you could be too. On the other side of the coin - if your students are all materially poor, you could be too.

We should never discriminate because of anything. Yoga is for everyone. Find a continuing education program that fits your pocket book and you will become the best you can be at being a Yoga teacher.
