Yes it is an amazing video and very wise words, to which I fully agree. There is only thing that troubles me: the postures shown. They are beautiful and I would watch these yogis practice for hours. However, some people (I would say most people) are not necessarily on that stage of their practice. So to some level, it can be quite discouraging… To the ones that think their practice will never be like this or it is not where you think it should be, always remember: you are exactly where you are supposed to be. Namaste.

Agree with all the reasons of ‘ruining’ life, like the studio, and the atmosphere’s great, very advanced practice… thanks for this !
