A yoga instructor who teaches at Yoga Workshop, a Boulder, Colorado yoga studio founded by Ashtanga Yoga teacher Richard Freeman, has been named in a lawsuit brought on by a former student who claims he was injured during an “unwanted adjustment.”
According to the lawsuit, the instructor’s “unsolicited physical manipulation” (which occurred in December of 2008) caused injuries that resulted in a permanent disability, reported the The Daily Camera. The lawsuit asserts that the studio should be held responsible for
promoting teachers who alter clients’ yoga positions without permission
— thus creating hazardous conditions.
