So, the reason I'm taking this training. Yes, it's Vinyasa Flow and I love it and want to learn more about technique and sequencing and all that.

But the thing that pushed me toward her was her interview on NPR's "Speaking of Faith". We were asked to say why we were there. I said some of the above and then added that I liked the way she described faith, as something coming up from the street, a gritty, hard-scrabble kind of believing. "Yeah, you're a freak!" she said, with a big grin. "Welcome to the club." And gave me a thumbs up. That was kind of cool.
In the above video she talks about her teachers, the ones who have explored their own darkness, -- working the shadow -- and emerged with a deep faith.
