Do you ever wonder about the credentials of your yoga teacher?  Do you know how/where your teacher acquired their qualifications and what this means?

Did you know there are professional standards and expectations of a yoga teacher/yoga teacher training course in Australia?

I’m guessing your answer to those questions is largely ‘no’. We are all a little wary of asking those questions….and perhaps believe because the person is the ‘teacher’ why would it be important?

It’s vital to know the credentials of any professional with whom you engage and particularly when that is for a physically oriented and personal practice. There are now numerous teacher training courses available: state, national, international, face-face, online etc..

It seems the article below (The Age, March 2013) identifies some of the potential issues of online yoga teacher training.

I’m interested in your thoughts…….
