Lawsuit Accuses Yoga Chain of Brainwashing, Financial Fraud

A yoga chain promising that it will help clients balance their lives is now finding themselves accused of working to destroy the lives of a number of employees according to a lawsuit filed recently. Dahn Yoga, a nationwide chain of Yoga Studios, is accused of cult like behavior, with employees coming forward saying they were brainwashed and indoctrinated into the business shady practices.

In particular, the plaintiffs in this suit claim that they were coerced into taking out student loans, and handing over the money to representatives of Dahn Yoga. Further, employees were subjected to severe physical exertion and marathon sessions, where employees were writhing in pain and vomiting, all in the name of self-improvement and understanding.
