I, like many yoga students/teachers have been frustrated with the “in and out burger” approach to yoga teacher training. While I was in Arlington in March a women told me she had learned more about yoga in a wee three hour workshop with than so far in the middle (!) of her 2oo hour Yoga Alliance sanctioned TT program.
this is not correct method.
And while I might like a $250 gift certificate to a fancy pants yoga clothing store I feel…just…yucky about the YJ approach to their “talent search.” Seriously. All we need now is Ed McMahon asking the judges how many stars for that asana.
This morning I came across this and once again I felt not alone in keeping the bar held high….yoga is hard, practice requires letting go, and to be a student and solid teacher can’t be judged by a glossy asana photo in a “talent” competition.
