THE CONVERSATION: What are the pros and cons of testing?
This working group will discuss the ways in which other industries have resolved pressing issues such as the ones Yoga Alliance members face; specifically the pros and cons of testing yoga teachers upon their completion of training. Other questions may include who should take an exam, how it would be administered, and how frequently. For example, should yoga schools be required to administer a practicum exam?
We have brought together a diverse spectrum of expert advisory voices to maximize the perspectives and resources within this area of inquiry. They represent one stream of input in the process — represented in the timeline activities below — alongside the thousands of voices inside and outside of yoga who have already contributed their viewpoints through a comprehensive survey, focus groups, online discussions, and other channels that will continue to be offered through the duration of this project.
