Yoga teacher trainings fall under the same category as schools that teach bartending, pet grooming, medical assistance, and business, according to Michigan state officials, reports the The Detroit News.
The Michigan Department of Energy, Labor and Economic Growth has begun notifying the 25 teacher training programs in Michigan that are registered with Yoga Alliance that they must pay licensing fees or close their doors. As of April 11 four schools had filed for licenses, four were in the process and another four have closed, says the article. “The remaining 17 have not responded. Their owners could face 90 days in jail and/or a $1,000 fine, according to the 1943 statute.”
Do you think yoga teacher training programs should be considered trade schools?
