Good episode? Give it some love!
In this episode, we look at the history and evolution of yoga teachers and who is deemed qualified to teach. We explore the ideas of guru-shisya parampara and indigenous knowledge of yoga. We discuss a householder’s approach to a yogic lifestyle and take a critical look at yoga credentialing and the Yoga Alliance 200-HR program. We discuss the issues of an hours based model instead of a competency based model for yoga teacher certification. As always, we wrap the episode with tips for bolstering personal standards for those teaching and practicing yoga.
