Your situation sounds familiar and my yoga teacher training never prepared me for the type of group I encountered during the first year of teaching. I was in a similar situation teaching yoga in a religious center. I never made any demands on the group. They refused to do sun salutations, meditate, say om, say namaste or say any sanskrit words. As a matter of fact they told me that from the beginning what they didn't want. Unfortunately, I bent over backwards to accommodate them. The more I did bend the more they thought my own religious values and morals were "weak." They saw moderate views as worth nothing. Finally, I just couldn't teach them any more. All I can say is good luck.
