I am in complete agreement with most of the information on this thread. However, I don't think that we can blame safety issues on the younger instructors. It ds happen as mentioned above, but the yoga teacher, who hurts their students, fits a different profile.

Bikram is over 50. When you see Bikram jumping on his student's backs and chests, what's going on? It's the "All About Me Show." It requires ego, lack of compassion, and the feeling of superiority to physically abuse students.

Worse yet, it requires yoga students who love being abused. He has a loyal following who are brain washed into believing it's a privlidge to be abused by him. :roll:

About being a yoga teacher after 50: It's wonderful, especially if you have grown up. <img src=" title="Laughing" /> But age is not a guarantee of maturity.
