8 Things That Irritate The Zen Out Of Your Yoga Instructors

lady gaga yoga

To me (an anxiety-ridden writer who is perpetually under a deadline of some sort), yoga instructors seem to have a pretty great life. They are somehow both zen and tough as, in their beautiful lululemon stretch pants, they casually sink into a Side Crow pose and smile blissfully, willing me to do the same. They seem unshakably calm. I am envious and have arms like wet noodles. But surely, as in any position where frequently dealing with people is part of the job description, there’s something that irks these beacons of serenity.

Don’t get me wrong: yoga teachers aren’t perfect, and have been known to do plenty of things that practitioners aren’t always super into. But still! They’re just so…so yoga! Can they possibly be subject to irritation like the rest of us? So I asked around. And sure enough, just like you, yoga instructors get annoyed at work. Of course, in their workplace, it’s us, the yoga practitioners, who are the annoying ones. Sad horns.

Many stressed that much of the time, it’s not our fault: in the interest of keeping yoga studios clutter-free and friendly, there are rarely posted rules to let us know that some things are in poor form. But some of these behaviors surprised me–really? People do that? And a few made me hang my head in yogic shame–because I, too, have been that lady.

Are you guilty of any of these studio no-nos? Flip through to find out if you’re the model student…or the problem child in the back row.

    I found your article entertaining. The gum chewing in the last photo is not only noisy but it is a choking hazard as well, not to mention some people do gross things with their gum when they are finished chewing. Those poor Yoga teachers. I guess even if you love what you do you can have problems.

      I didn’t even think about it being a choking hazard, but that’s so true! One movement into Plow pose and you could definitely have a blue-faced practitioner.

      Thanks for reading!
