Teaching yoga at Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit

As I mentioned in yesterday's blog, my contribution to Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit was to teach a yoga class -- and I was especially happy when my niece, Sophie Herbert, agreed to join me for the trip. In addition to teaching yoga and taking part in other interesting business ventures, Sophie is also the New York coordinator and web designer for Energy 4 Orphans, a small but ever-expanding international nonprofit organization that raises support for destitute and orphaned children through yoga and other creative fundraising projects.

With Sophie's help, the full yoga class was so much fun and I think everyone enjoyed themselves. One surprise was meeting Brandy Chastain, the famous soccer star. She had never practiced yoga before and said that her taut muscles felt great afterwards. Another testimonial that yoga really works!
