I am very proud to help support one of my friends, Paula Puopolo, who has to date, been the most important filmography I have ever had the pleasure of filming. Because of the filming, she mentioned to me that she has become involved in “The Invisible War Documentary.” Rape is rampant in today’s US military and usually, goes unreported. There are estimated 20,000 Male on Male rapes that occur each year.

About Paula C. Puopolo:

Naval Officer, pilot Paula Coughlin, was assaulted at the 1991 Naval Tailhook Conference. The events that occurred prompted Paula to become one of the first women to stand up in a court of law against the US Government and successfully brought light to the way for women are treated in the military.

This Yoga Biography is mostly about surpassing chaotic limitations that happen in life, and how yoga can help ba person heal from their ordeal.

Paula’s story is in-part about legal proceedings that that change the US Military, the 1991 Naval Tailhook Conference, but it is mostly about how she became the person she is by learning to accept her past through the practice of yoga.

The outcome of the “Tailhook Scandal,” was the catalyst for changing how women were being treated in today’s Military.

Today Paula is the owner of Ocean Yoga in Jacksonville, Florida, and teachers Anusara Yoga.

This is story is about surpassing the inevitable trials of living through the practice and devotion of yoga.

Special Thanks to Paula C. Puopolo for her bravery and strength in telling her story, and also to the unbelievable melodic grace of Michael Masley…

Without Paula, this story of hope and survival would never have been told, and without the generosity of Michael, this story may have never been finished.

We are in our second year of business and grateful for what we have been given.
