The finest teachers I studied Yoga with did not have an RYT, or any other certification. Some of the "certified yoga schools" I have had experience with seem to limit rather than expand the spirit of yoga - a phenomenon that I'm sure you've seen in your primary discipline as well. Not to say you shouldn't finish the training - I encourage you to do so. But to regard it as just the beginning-- like your high school diploma. Very best wishes to you -- as a beloved (uncertified) guru said to me when I began teaching, "Teaching yoga is a very good thing to do."

...there is a place in you where you have never been wounded, where there's still a sureness in you, where there's a seamlessness in you, and where there is a confidence and tranquility in you. ~John O'Donohue

I encourage you to complete your training. You know from being a teacher, that nothing deepens your understanding of something like teaching it to someone else. I started yoga in 2006 and was teaching in 2009. I continue to train and add to my education because it does deepen and add to my personal practice as well.
I love your comment about the ethics and philosophy being the air that yoga breathes.

I retired from college teaching in July, 2007. I began practicing yoga three years later, when I joined Silver Sneakers. Now, I am training to become a yoga instructor through YogaFit. Even if I do not complete the training required to become an RYT, I am happier as my practice reaches into the ethics and philosophy that that are like the air that yoga breathes.

Mindful movement is a form of prayer.
