She's an employee of Facebook... If they don't want her being "stern" then she shouldn't be. Maybe they thought they were hiring a happy-go-lucky yoga teacher and not a stickler.

Actually she says it herself:
"The culture of these places is to let them do whatever they want," she said. "And I'm just not really OK with anarchy."

Oh well then, looks like you aren't a good fit.

She wasn't an employee of Facebook. She was an employee with Plus One Health Management, a company that contracted with places like Facebook and Cisco.

I don't blame her. It's disruptive to the entire class. Since I take power yoga, most people don't have the energy to do anything else, so it's rare in my class for anyone to be on their phone, but the few times it's happened, they always stand out like someone talking on their phone in the movie theater.

It's okay to leave the world behind for one hour.

My original comment was much longer talking about how it probably wasn't necessarily the rule/request but the way it was made/handled. I ended up deleting it all because I couldn't make it sound right and still can't. But I find it annoying how much the article, and now these comments, are focusing on the phone bit. It's more likely she was terminated for personality/culture conflict issues than a "no cellphones" rule.
