Yoga: Meditation in Action

Sean Corn found the limelight in the 2001 Nike Goddess Ad Campaign which featured yoga as part of its compilation.  But before that, she was well known in the yoga circles, but as you listen to her interview with Krista Tippett, it is hard to believe her New Jersey, blue-collar upbringing would have led her to this.  On top of that, she suffered from an acute level of OCD and left home at an early age.  Yoga helped her to find her way to a balanced life.

While her personal story is quite interesting, it is the discussion Tippett and Corn have on the popularity of yoga and its controversy among Christian circles that I find most interesting.  What follows is a fascinating conversation about the practice of the presence of God and prayer that involves your whole body.

Lastly, Corn speaks about her work with Children of the Night, and how yoga has helped change the lives of child prostitutes.
