Should yoga be licensed?

Editor’s note: According to Diana Whitney, “Yes, victims have notified the Yoga Alliance in the past and filed reports about the injuries.” This question brings up one of many threads that we had to leave under-explored, largely due to the fact that the organization failed to respond to three requests for an interview.

RE: “#ThemToo” [Special Focus, Apr. 18]:

Just out of curiosity — was the Yoga Alliance, or any other professional accrediting outfit, ever asked to investigate this situation?

Perhaps the yoga industry will have to become subject to state licensing (as, say, hairdressers are).

Too bad.
