Namaskar Paulji, Yogis, and Yoginis,

I hope this is the right thread, it looks like this is the right place. Recently one of my past yoga teachers has assaulted me verbally behind my back. I teach children and she said that due to my lack of flexibility, I will never be a good teacher for adults. It hurt me to hear this because I love this teacher. My husband was hurt because we had her over our house a few times and thought she was my friend. Without turning this into a big soap opera with a flood of tears, I have had self-esteem issues all my life, but feel that I need some advice before losing any more sleep - any advice will help. I'm trying to wrestle with why she would do this and Yoga is more than doing advanced asanas - isn't it? I await your response.
