In a video clip shown on the show, Al said ahead of the class: “People are looking for a different way to work now, maybe not the same eight hours a day, five days a week.

Maybe we are looking for a new way to find peace.” He also admitted: “I find that whenever I’ve done these guided things I just end up falling asleep.”
