"They say that men can take care of themselves, but the poor animals cannot. (But) ...the majority of us cannot see beyond a few years, just as some animals cannot see beyond a few steps. Just a little narrow circle–that is our world. We have not the patience to look beyond, and thus become immoral and wicked. This is our weakness, our powerlessness.... It is not the blind, birdlike emotion that leads to perfection....(Here) emotion has no place, nor sentimentalism, nor anything that belongs to the senses but only the light of pure reason." - Swami Vivekananda

     Picture someone who practices yoga. What comes to mind probably is a white suburban mom in Lululemon tights, not a man who can lift himself effortlessly into scale pose.

 

     "That's the perception most people have when I talk to them about yoga," says Stephon Matthews.

 

     "So I invite them to one of our classes, because we have the most diverse yoga class in Colorado, and it changes their whole view."

 

     Initially, Matthews also was skeptical about yoga teacher Tyrone Beverly, a 34-year-old Manual High School graduate who developed Im'Unique, a yoga program designed to be inclusive and expansive, then paired the yoga with a post-workout conversation called Breaking Bread, Breaking Barriers.

 

     "Growing up in the neighborhoods where I was raised left me with no choice but to get involved and do something about the genocide epidemic that was occurring there," said Beverly, who is soft-spoken, with clear eyes and a lithe, feline physique.
