But by spring 2013, Carrasquillo had learned that several Bikram students had accused Choudhury of sexual harassment and rape. At first she kept practicing, refusing to associate Choudhury’s potential wrongdoings with her beloved yoga. But ultimately the allegations became too much. One day in the fall of 2o13, while standing at the front of her mat, 
Carrasquillo became nauseous. She realized the practice she’d come to crave for helping her heal was hurting her instead.

Carrasquillo’s story of emotional turmoil isn’t unique. Scores 
of people who have found a practice, teacher, community, and sometimes a career through yoga have been thrown for a loop when a revered leader is accused of sexual harassment, emotional and economic fraud, and even breaking the law. Sadly, in Western yoga, there have been many such assertions.
