    I mean its not like mma/jujitsu where you have to pay your dues with years of training/sparring/rolling so you get the credential to teach. While with yoga, you take a teachers course for about a 1,000 dollars and suddenly your a teacher that can charge shit load of money.

    Any reason why people aren't wise to how the yoga business is structured?

    Also I find it odd on how they preach spiritualism in their practice while yoga is one of the most expensive things to learn. :icon_conf

    Why can't you just do that crap at home? Look on youtube and get some yoga workouts, or something.

    The only reason I would sign up for a Yoga class, would be to see all the hot Milfs in Yoga pants.

    or nibbling on Shari's Berries...

    After a few months of spraining muscles in the centre of my back repeatedly, I'm pondering Yoga in leiu of weights. Getting too old.

    I guess that makes sense! The idea isn't the practice thats expensive but the culture that caters to the "Ellite"

    Well the problem with that is, I have been doing boxing for many years and the cost is around 50-75 dollars a month and the coach has to make sure he knows his stuff since his reputation is on the line and boxing is a very technical art that you can't fake.

    While yoga does have advance studies, most studios teach the basic stuff while they charge around 150 dollars a month unless your willing to sign a long contract. Because of that it kind of confuses me as to why ppl aren't seeing through the illusion of yoga in the west.

    But I guess its catered towards the rich and powerful which is smart way to do things in a business sense.

    A business can only charge what people are willing to pay for it. If people want to hand out ridiculous sums of money to have a group stretching session, then who's to blame the teachers for charging so much?
