    Yoga teacher training has hit a new low that is so unbelievable that this has got to be a bad joke. But, sadly, it is not a joke. These people really mean it.

      Yoga teacher training has hit a new low that is so unbelievable that
      this has got to be a bad joke. But, sadly, it is not a joke. These
      people really mean it. Below is a press release that has just come
      out on June 5, 2005, describing an online "Yoga Certification"
      program for $49.99. The title of their web page says, "Become an
      ExpertRating Certified Yoga Instructor." The text on this page
      includes, "With ExpertRating you get certified quickly online"
      and "Buy the Yoga Certification $49.99"

      Friends, if you have never read the article I've put on my website
      entitled "Modern Yoga versus Ancient Yoga," please do so. It will
      share with you some very sad, but painfully true realities about the
      state of Yoga today. Here's a link to the article:
      http://www.swamij.com/ancientyoga.htm

      How bad can it get? How much distortion of Yoga is acceptable? We
      each must decide, in our own practices and our own actions in the
      world. May we all choose wisely and lovingly, and with conviction.

      In loving service,

      Swami J
