That is crazy! She should not have been fired. The facebook employee was basicially disregarding the point of the yoga class. Seems as if the employee was taking advantage of her employer. She entered the yoga class to get out of working not to participate, yet the company takes her side. Crazy.

Can she put both ankles behind her head?

If so, I believe there may just be a few jobs out there she can apply for.

Good for her. She got another job doing the same thing where she could teach Yoga without any disruptions.
