I love yoga and have been practicing on and off for several years, and I feel eager to learn more about it, so a certification seems like a natural next step. But I am also a science nerd and find myself getting annoyed anytime a teacher starts talking about chakras or toxins. I don't want to throw away $3k just to learn pseudoscience--I'd rather focus on anatomy, class sequencing, etc. Does it make sense for someone like me to do a yoga teacher certification?
