THE CONVERSATION: What qualifications are necessary to be a yoga teacher?
Some of the questions that this group will work through are what prerequisites if any should there be to take a yoga teacher training? Is the current 200hr/500hr system sufficient? Do we need more hours? Different levels?
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.
