Please consider taking some actions so no other yoga students need to experience this teacher. If the teacher is certified via yoga alliance, contact them at www.yogaalliance.org/ with your specific concerns. Talk to the manager/owner of the studio and be sure to get a promise of some sort of action. Let the teacher know, via conversation/email, etc. exactly how you experienced the class and the teacher's nonprofessional behavior.

I have done yoga for 5 years and decided to try this new Omaha Power Yoga place and never had a such unprofessional yoga teacher. Where do I start? Let's just say besides sexually harassing students while "correcting them," he also made derogatory homosexual comments, used foul language, and criticized students. He made comments like "What? Wer'e you abused as a child?!" And other comments so inappropriate I would rather not say. I never thought I would ever encounter such an inappropriate, arrogant, vulgar, critical, judgmental, and harassing person in the yoga world but I did and it truly makes me sad because a yoga environment is supposed to be an uplifting experience. It truly makes me appreciate the other wonderful yoga studios Omaha has to offer.

I can't describe how much Power yoga has helped me get in shape and increase my overall wellness. A new power yoga studio is opening in Omaha finally and is giving free classes for a couple of weeks in February so I wanted to share. There's not many of us Yogis in Omaha but we're mighty! www.8thAvenueYoga.com
