You are right. Never feel that morality in Yoga or in life is a bad thing. If you read history or scripture, you will notice that vice is nothing new. Since Biblical times people have acted out their fantasies, if they had the power to do so. The old sayings about abusing authority apply. This is why any organization worth its salt tells Yoga teachers to sign an ethics agreement.
Ds it mean all Yoga teachers will abide by the rules? Sorry to say, a few will not. But I think it is worth mentioning that I have been to many Yoga teacher trainings, workshops, seminars, and camps. I have never seen Yoga teachers smoking, getting high, fooling around with their students, eating steaks, or drinking alchohol.
It is possible, but nobody invited me to the party. Most of those places don't even have coffee, tea, or cola. As a matter of fact, having a coffee at most Yoga teacher retreats is a big deal and there are rules against it.
