The woman who ran the yoga teacher training I quit, her guru is Tony Robbins, yes, good ol' Tony Teeth is her yoga guru. And it is his teachings that underlay her yoga.

My attempts to interject what I've learned from Paramahansa Yogananda, Sri Yukteswar, Swami Satyananda Saraswati were seen as disruptive.

My Spirit Guides told me the exact verse of the Yoga Sutras we would be discussing the next day. Sure enough it was the verse of discussion.

Having researched that very verse the day before I spoke out to the teacher who identified herself from the beginning as a Christian who advises people to be careful of Paramahansa Yogananda's teachings. Another student got in my face and screamed, "You need to respect your teachers!"

I left and never went back.

I practice a more authentic yoga. Is all yoga in the West like what I experienced in Black Mountain? I must leave WNC to find out.

I just wanna know how your ego, my not-yoga teacher, and Billy Graham's were able to co-exist in the same space, seeing as you both require so much. You must be feeling some breathing room since ol' Billy left the building. Br-ea-the.
