Yoga has retreated in India after the ancient times as nowadays we can see that more Indian citizens are starting to be interested in Yoga. Yoga made a round from India to the West where people really needed release from stress of modern life and back to India as Indians nowadays are as stressed and under pressure in modern life as the Western people. The lifestyles and living patterns that had hit the Western countries few decades before have now arrived to India with full threshold and are taking over the serenity of the calm and composed lives of the Indian workforce.
In the pursuit of relief from the atrocities of the metropolis lifestyle and along with the popularity of Yoga people in the Western countries fled India seeking for gurus and teachers. And as a response to this there was a flood of new fresh gurus and yoga teachers. Unfortunately most of them did not have any serious spiritual practice time behind before trying to preach others and could not achieve the status of a true and authentic Yoga teacher. Among the mushrooming of Yoga trainers and teachers there were rare and scarce number of teachers who actually were knowledgeable and reliable and thus, it becomes important to review before following the instructions of any random teacher.
Chetan practices that where kept secret for millennia - like controlling the breath patterns of various pranayama practices, influencing vital forces of various kundalini or tantra practices have become completely open to public and taught to people who are not ready and by people who are not ready to teach it either.

What's more, in various systems of spiritual development "those forces and possibilities that one can reach were kept mystery from the supporters and just uncovered to them when they were prepared" - is possibly the most unsafe when put to public as it can lead one to annihilate him/herself by pursuing those forces. For instance individuals getting apprehensive clutters like epilepsy has turned into a typical marvels of the unsafe pranayama practice. When somebody is not stable in the body and mind but rather in any case goes step more remote totally ill-equipped and pushes the breath and pushes the unobtrusive energies, the vitality begins to run more dyanamically yet the substantial vitality circuit of "body electric wires" are too thin and can't hold the voltage" and the sensory system breaks.
