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.

Welcome. Try some Bikram or hot yoga if you have a chance.
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
