From the article:

"Modern yoga has been fraught with stories of charismatic male yoga
teachers who promoted their teachings as spiritually pure and later
abused, or otherwise took advantage of, students who believed their
mentors were gurus or saints. In 1910, an eccentric American yogi
named Pierre Bernard (a.k.a. “The Omnipotent Oom”) was tried for
having “inveigled and enticed” one woman into sexual relations—the
charges were later dropped, and the incident ultimately brought him
infamy. Decades later, in 1983, Swami Muktananda was the subject of an
article that chronicled sexual activities he was alleged to have had
with young female students; a New Yorker story later reported that at
least 100 people believed the allegations to be true but were afraid
of being ostracized by the community. That same decade, Yogi Bhajan’s
3HO Foundation, commonly called the “Happy, Healthy, and Holy
Organization,” settled several assault lawsuits against its leader,
including one case of rape and confinement brought by a woman who
entered his circle at age eleven."

The last reference is to Katherine Felt ... gi-bhajan/
