I remember the first time I took a yoga class. During one of the difficult (for me) poses, I began to weep. I didn't make a sound but tears began to roll from my eyes like a faucet not tightly closed. I didn't know why it was happening but it was as if something was trying to seep out of me like sweat. It was startling and I felt embarrassed until the teacher told me it almost always happens the first time someone does yoga. "Oh." I thought. "I must be doing it right." What I realized from listening to this less-than one hour was how healing yoga is. I suspect that no one listening to this episode will ever look at prostitutes the same way. I know. Non sequitur, right? It's not. I could write so much more but listen for yourself, generous reader, at the Speaking of Faith web site.
Those who are into yoga will undoubtedly know much more about this person than I. I found her philosophy and the work she's done introducing yoga to many disenfranchised people, particularly to "Children of the Night" in Los Angeles and to prostitutes in Thailand be inspirational.
