I have never experienced body shame in a yoga class and I think that I would have reacted similarly. As a teacher he obviously needs to work on his people skills. Yoga teachers should certainly be thinking about this issue. I often refer to the bodies in my classes as 'so strong'. I use a gentle touch and always speak quietly when giving individual instruction. I always finish off my classes with acknowledgment of body. We take the time on our side after savasana to give thanks for our physical bodies and all our strengths and weaknesses. Yoga has helped me make peace with my body and love it even if the messages I receive are that it is not 'perfect'. I make a conscious effort to help my students also make peace with theirs.
