Yoga Teacher Fired For Banning Cell Phones at Facebook

Teaching Yoga to a bunch of pampered Facebook employees? Don't make them turn off their phones or you'll be fired. Apparently you can't say "no" to a Facebook's the rules. eek!

For years, yoga instructor Alice Van Ness has started her classes with a simple request - that students turn their cell phones off. But it proved to be a hard policy to follow for at least one employee, who began tapping away on her phone in the middle of class. And after Van Ness shot her a disapproving look, the instructor found herself out of a job. The 35-year-old San Carlos resident was fired last month after managers at the fitness contractor she worked for explained that saying "no" to Facebook employees is a no-no.
