  • Description

    AT THE PAGE BOY MATERNITY COMPANY IN TEXAS, WORK STOPS EVERY AFTERNOON AT TWO O'CLOCK - WHILE THE 150 MEMBERS OF THE STAFF PAUSE FOR FIVE MINUTES YOGA.

    THE FACTORY IS RUN BY MISS ELSIE FRANKFURT, A TEXAS MILLIONAIRESS WHO THREE YEARS AGO BECAME A FAN FOR YOGA. "THIS IS A WORLD OF TENSION", SHE SAYS. "YOU CAN'T CHANGE IT BUT YOU CAN DO WHAT YOU CAN TO EASE IT."
    AFTER READING A BOOK ON THE SUBJECT AND FINDING THAT YOGA MADE HER SISTERS AND HERSELF FEEL SLEEP AND WORK BETTER, MISS FRANKFURT DECIDED TO INTRODUCE A DAILY YOGA PROGRAMME AT WORK. THE STAFF LAUGHED AT FIRST - BUT NOW THE "YOGA BREAK" IS ESTABLISHED.

    WHEN WORK STOPS EACH DAY AT TWO, A RECORDING OF YOGA INSTRUCTIONS IS PLAYED OVER THE PUBLIC ADDRESS SYSTEM. MISS FRANKFURT IS PLEASED WITH THE SUCCESS OF HER IDEA AT THE FACTORY AND NOW INTENDS TO PREACH THE GOSPEL OF YOGA TO HER CUSTOMERS.

    (YOGA MAY BE DEFINED AS "THE DIVERSION OF THE SENSES FROM THE EXTERNAL WORLD AND CONCENTRATION OF THOUGHT WITHIN.)
