Three main themes emerged with strong and clear support from our members and the broader yoga community - from people who are just beginning their teaching journeys to those who bring decades of wisdom:
- First, our credentials should identify and support those who hold them as experts and professionals who stand for quality, safety, and accessibility in yoga teaching.
- Second, for this to be credible, we must update and uphold our standards so that the credentials are in integrity.
- And, we need to fulfill all of the responsibilities of a professional membership association, including providing more comprehensive educational resources and member benefits as well as elevating difficult conversations about community-wide systemic challenges - all in support of our growth as individuals, as professionals, and as a global community.
