You must realize that students are people too. Most of your students give you praise and value your time as their yoga teacher. But a few people see everyone as a servant to fulfill their needs. Would you tell someone when to take a holiday and when not to? This isn't your problem - it's her problem. You can try to be reasonable, but a tiger will still look at you as his lunch. Don't take this student's scorn to heart. You have said that you were taking holidays off and you gave months of advanced notice. This is an example of an obnoxious person who pushes her weight around everywhere she goes. Take your holidays and enjoy them. You can't afford to worry about every person who dsn't appreciate your time. Your heart is in the right place but being a yoga teacher dsn't mean you have to put up with abuse. This type of student loves to stir things up. Talk to her alone and be reasonable. If she dsn't understand that you have a right to take holidays off - maybe you should part company in 2009. And she will drive other students out of your studio because she is so arrogant that she dsn't see it or realize it. By the time she has become self aware, all of your students will have left because of her rudeness.
