I received an email in my inbox today inviting me to the first Annual Yoga Alliance Leadership Conference. It sounds interesting, and it got me thinking. I have always had my own opinions of how Yoga Alliance functions. I believe that they have passed up many amazing opportunities for the community that they stand for, and I feel that there is a lot of potential for growth. I myself am certified through them, as are over 70,000 other yoga teachers, but what exactly does that mean?
I would like to start a discussion amongst you, the yoga teachers:
What are your thoughts on the Yoga Alliance and what it stands for?
What is Yoga Alliance providing to teachers across the country? What could it be doing better?
If there is obvious interest, I plan to attend the conference as a representative of you – the real life teachers who are out there supporting yourselves. I have started my own discussion in the comments below, please feel free to add your own thoughts and opinions!
I understand that this can be a very sensitive topic, so if you prefer to remain anonymous, you can send your comment to me, via email, and I will post it for you.
