Video of the Week: Seane Corn: the Union of Activism & Yoga.

Seane Corn’s from Jersey, and she has amazing hair. She’s also a world famous yoga instructor, having represented yoga in an iconic Nike commercial. But what makes Seane one of the coolest yoginis ever is her dedication to yoga’s tough side. On our talk show, “elevision,” she talked about working with the dark emotions that surface during practice—anger, frustration, insecurity, laziness—and about sharing this strength with other women, specifically prostitutes in America and Southeast Asia. My favorite part is when she tells about crawling into a porn-house in a Cambodian slum to lecture men on safe-sex practices.
