What turns you on about yoga?: The practice of yoga doesn’t allow you to hide from yourself. In the words of the great Bhagavad-Gita, “Yoga is a journey to the self through the self”. The complexity lies in the fact that we have always had this deeper connection inwards and have always known the answers, we have just forgotten. The practice is the process of remembering and subsequently forgetting and remembering again. And once you know something, you can't ‘unknow it’.
