Yoga and LGBTQ History: Who is Your Teacher?

After another yoga class where I tried to stay on my own mat (this is metaphoric for my non-yogi readers) and not envy the young and dexterous millennial pretzeling on my right or the less dexterous but muscular Gen Y?er to my left, I decided to offer a suggestion to my loving and kind 30-something yoga teacher; why not offer a class for women over a certain age?
