Practicing Non-Violence

Tonight I'm planning classes for this Sunday at 8 and 9 a.m. at Yoga Tree Potrero Hill and thinking not so much about a sequence of poses, but much about ahimsa, non-violence. The longer I practice yoga, the more I see it in the world and the more I see the world within it. I had a chance recently to talk with a biology professor who is also a dedicated wildlife conservation photographer. Her work balances strong and soft approaches to educating viewers about the poaching crisis that threatens elephant extinction and calling hearts to end violence toward the friendly giants. Read my post about Susan McConnell's photography on the Stanford News site. See more of Professor McConnell's work on her website.
