Speaking of Faith: Seane Corn on Yoga--Meditation in Action

(This was a powerful and important lesson. I fumble with yoga on my own, but Corn's Yoga is dedicated spirtual in the training of the body while also being a practice that involves one fully with the issues of the world. She has given me a lot to think about... anger/love/fear, mindfulness/the body and generosity/activism.)

Seane Corn on Yoga: Meditation in Action
Speaking of Faith (American Public Media)
Host: Krista Tippett

Yoga studios are cropping up on street corners across the U.S. Now there are yoga classes at YMCAs, law schools, and corporate headquarters. This 5000-year-old spiritual technology is converging intriguingly with 21st-century medical science and with many religious and philosophical perspectives. Seane Corn takes us inside the practicalities and power of yoga, and describes how it helps her face the darkness in herself and the world.

Seane Corn teaches yoga at the Exhale Center for Sacred Movement in Venice, California. She is the National Yoga Ambassador for YouthAIDS, and co-founder of "Off the Mat, Into the World."
