Their alleged transgressions, serious and disturbing as they may be, are gross exaggerations of what occasionally happens in the yoga community – despite the unwritten code of conduct against it.Yes: yoga teachers have sexual, consensual relationships with their students.
They don’t want “more” and in many cases they prefer “less.”(less success = less complications…)My friend Charles was frustrated after being ‘let down easy’ with the excuse “I think we want different lifestyles.”He said, “Why do women have such a narrow band for dating and then complain there is no one out there?!Every woman I know in San Francisco says the same thing.“He has to be this much taller and make this much more money. No date is dinged for being 5’5” or pursuing a career as a yogini.”Charles was right.I mean, I’m tall and successful, so he should be MORE tall and successful. As long as a woman is kind, cute and brushes her teeth, she is considered eligible.There is certainly confusion around the topic: “I can understand students and teachers getting muddled up around sex and relationships.I haven’t met a person yet who is completely clear around this topic,” said one prominent London yoga teacher.But, I’m curious so many people choose to ignore all advice, popular wisdom, ethical arguments, evidence that these sorts of relationships tend to go sour, and decide to date among their yogi tribe.
Speaking about her husband's bipolar condition, she wrote in a chapter: 'Andrew is not perfect, but who is? I'm glad he revealed his bipolar condition but, as he says, living with it is not all negative'.The confusion is the result of an absence of clear, standardised ethical guidelines when it comes to the relationship.The British Wheel of Yoga (the closest thing this country has to a governing body) writes teachers should have an ‘appropriate working relationship’ with their student – but does not outrightly bar physical involvement.People with a shared interests are drawn to one another – yoga can be all-consuming and dedicated practitioners apply the philosophies of yoga to all aspects of their life.I'm sure I'm not the first girl to crush on her yoga teacher. I want to take the next step and ask her out, but I've heard that dating your teacher is taboo.A girl who does yoga quite literally goes with the flow.
