Yoga is so much more publicly accepted compared to when I first started teaching ~25 years ago. My family admits that the reason they weren't supportive of me studying under the gurus that came to the US to teach the eight limbs of yoga is because they were concerned I was joining a cult. I had started watching my diet; not just of food and drink but of thoughts and reactions to life's obstacles. Since it was a slightly different way of reacting and thinking than what they were used to, it made them a bit uncomfortable. Two friends even disowned me because they feared that what I was teaching was a dangerous religion that would turn me and others to evil. Seriously.
