From posers to exhibitionists: 10 yoga personality types revealed

    (CNN)Seasoned yoga instructor Mariza Smith has a confession.

    "Nobody wants to see the inside of what's happening in your shorts," Smith told CNN. "You do see a lot of that in yoga classes."
    Yoga's popularity, which has almost doubled in the past 10 years in the U.S., evidently has its downside, ushering in a rash of newbies unaware of the teaching's finicky (and often justified) unwritten rules.
      Celebrity yoga devotees such as Jennifer Aniston and Gisele Bündchen have opened up a whole new market, attracting many who are perhaps more interested in buff bods than spiritual growth.
        To be fair, attending a yoga class for the first time can be a hugely daunting experience. Yogis can dress strangely (or scantily), they can make funny noises, they sometimes smell awkwardly, and twist themselves up like pretzels or flip into a handstand just to warm up.
