Yoga teacher fired for glaring at Facebook worker

MENLO PARK, Calif. (AP) - July 11, 2012

Alice Van Ness, who was hired to teach hour-long yoga sessions at Facebook's Menlo Park campus, says she tells students before class to turn off their cellphones.

But a female employee pulled out her cellphone in the middle of a Monday session and began texting.

The San Jose Mercury News says Van Ness didn't say anything, but she gave the student what she calls a look of disapproval.

The student later complained and Van Ness was fired by Plus One Health Management.

The termination letter says Van Ness "made a spectacle" of the student.
