A hush falls over the room, and all eyes turn to the petite woman in the white turban. On a small stage draped with red tapestries, Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa kneels before the class of about 50 women, all in different stages of pregnancy. Her expression is beatific as she speaks gently into her microphone headset. "Pregnancy is so pertinent, whether you're pregnant or not," she tells her students. "It's about your own birth .... Everything becomes alive around pregnancy."

Mama walks in, bobbling a little in the middle, a thin rubber mat rolled under one arm. She takes off her shoes. People ask, "How many months?" Mama smiles. "Six months," she replies. "Eight months," she says. "Eight-and-a-half months." Oh, Mama. She is something. In all her 26, 28, 33, 35 years, she has never felt or looked like this, or pondered the things she ponders all the time these days. It is puzzling and amazing, this new state.

Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa is an expert on yoga ("Earth Mother, Yoga Star," Aug. 16). She obviously knows what she is doing to give mothers relaxation and serenity, and this doubtless has a positive effect on the unborn child. But she demonstrates the fatal flaw of many "gurus." Charles Lindbergh was an expert on aeronautics, but he expounded on (and was listened to about) politics when he had no more expertise than the person in the street. Gurus have an obligation to be careful about the spillover halo effect.

The second suspected gunman who allegedly opened fire at a Sikh sports event in Sacramento County has been caught in India five years after the fatal shooting, the FBI announced.

One person -- 26-year-old Parmjit Pamma Singh -- died in the shooting, and several more were injured. Spectators were able to hold down the other shooter -- 28-year-old Gurpreet Singh Gosal -- until Sacramento County Sheriff's deputies arrived at the scene, some of them using hockey sticks and cricket bats, the Sacramento Bee reported.

SHIVA REA, the reigning queen of L.A.'s saturated yoga scene, strikes a pose for Yogi Times photographer Jasper Johal. "Scoot back a little so that light catches your face," directs Johal, whose photo will grace a "Pose for a Cause" centerfold promoting the international charity Trees for the Future. "Beautiful, nice. Got it." Fellow yogi Duncan Wong and a group of DVD promoters cheer on Rea, just out of view of the snapping lens, as a glam-style fan lifts wisps of her long golden hair.
