I can’t say for certain why I decided to break my own rules, but I became intimately involved with one of my students.Many of my friends mistakenly exposed the most vulnerable parts of themselves to another, thinking that since that other person was also part of the yoga community, they held the same values of how to treat each other.Now, I am not talking about some new age, hippie dippie idea of love; rather I’m referring to the basics we all learned in kindergarten, i.e.She left a successful career in advertising to teach yoga full-time because she decided it would be totally rad to pretend she was 21 again.She managed two large studios for the past two years, led many teacher trainings, and enjoyed having her soul sucked out of her.
