I have attended some yoga schools in Munich. My experience was not very positive. Many of the yoga instructors I met did not emanate authenticity.They had the outer bling with Sanskrit tattoos and mantras etc but their energy did not have the essence of yoga.There was something distinctly fake about certain things happening in these yoga schools.I did not feel any spirituality in these yoga schools.
The instructors spoke cliches about light and openness in the class but one could sense it is not their own experience, and that they are actually running away from their own shadows.
Finally they started playing some chanting yoga music in the class and I felt like I cannot stand these instructors and their facade any more.
When I left the class, I went out for a run in the night and played some electronic music and it felt much better.
My closing thought was "Thank God this hypocrisy is over and that I can do something I truly like doing".
