Status: Attempting to Regulate YTTs
Members of Slovenia’s yoga community contacted Yoga Alliance to voice concerns that regulations on yoga studios and teacher training programs will harm the practice of yoga in their country. In addition to opposing unnecessarily burdensome government regulation of yoga, we disagree that yoga is a type of sport and therefore can be regulated by Slovenia’s Ministry of Education, Science and Sport. Yoga Alliance sent a letter to the minister on May 20, 2015 offering observations about the issue and outlining our stance.
If you are a teacher or a studio or school owner in Slovenia, let us know how these proposed regulations will affect your yoga community by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
