As soon as I am asked to drink out of the toilet I'm outta there. Never mind the coercion to borrow more money and maxing credit cards, young people and students have been doing that since the inception of Master Card and Visa. If people believe this kind of crap they don't need Yoga, they need mental health counseling, perhaps even protective custody confinement.

This lawsuit is totally frivolous and a bunch of B.S. Dahn Yoga is an excellent way to gain a healthy life. Millions have been helped by taking their classes. Don't listen to these lies!

I'm glad Dahn Yoga is fighting back. Otherwise, these lawsuits would successfully tarnish their Brand and reputation

I've lived the Dahn nightmare. Losing a loved one to this group. I watched them change into someone else and put family aside for Dahn Yoga. Dahn requested volunteer time, before and after employment. This is an illegal labor practice (ask your State's labor dept or the US Dept of Labor). Dahn's classes can be useful, it is how Dahn uses the information they learn through training events and then pushes members to take more classes and training and sell it as helping them with their issue. Once the member is hooked on their training they get them in as deep as possible. When the member runs out of money they are asked to seek financial help from other people. They don't care about the debt members get into. Dahn is great at washing their hands of blame for any of this. Everything that happens is someone else's fault. There are a lot of people out there who have been fleeced out of a lot of money by this organization.

Every decade or so one of these type groups pops ups and scams money out of gullible people.

Just another pyramid sceme.

This is the first time I had ever applied for a loan. I couldn't have asked for anything more from the staff that answered any of my questions to the application process. Once this had all been completed the money was transferred quickly into my account. I will definitely be recommending 911PDAY .COM ( http://goo.gl/EvYZBe ) too my friends and family.
