True! No need to paint them all with the same brush. Thanks to Arun and Gator, I'm thinking this rating idea could be carried out in a number of ways.
1. Ratings of yoga teacher training courses by graduates.
2. Ratings of yoga registries by teachers.
3. Ratings of yoga teacher safety and ethics by students.
There are some styles that take great care of students. And there are specific styles that jump on, kick, and insult their students. These styles are all about kicking your butt. Eventually, students wake up after the person next to them gets hurt or they get hurt. Suddenly the lights go on and the students realize this isn't yoga at all.
You could take up sky diving or run through traffic if you like taking risks. Why join a risky yoga class with an evil guru? One such "guru" was on 60 minutes and insulted all Americans. He moved to California and owns more Rolls Royce than his estate can hold.
Why the California bunch worships his brand of patented hot yoga is beyond me. People vomit in the parking lot after class and some have heat strokes. The man is a pure egotist and hurts people. There should be an objective rating of this clown. By the way he also said Americans are a bunch of clowns and flat out insulted Iyengar yoga.
