But around 6 years ago, she took a hiatus from performing to devote herself to a deep study of yoga, especially Nada Brahma, or the yoga of sound. Originally she thought she would take about a year off, but actually, she never really returned to her old performing life. She opened a yoga studio in Oakland, and made teaching there the focus of her career.</p> Fri, 20 Sep 2013 00:55:55 +0000 Hana Baba 33328 at http://kalw.org What happens when a singer becomes a yoga teacher?
