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 are in the process of assembling expert advisory voices for this area of inquiry. Please visit this area soon for updates.
