Namaste! When I started doing yoga in 1991, it was for the pursuit of magical powers which I read about from books. But it didn’t go well for long and I abandoned it after 6 months. The second coming to yoga was for the pursuit of happiness.
The second coming to yoga was for the pursuit of happiness. I was not happy with the way my life was going, only later to realise that I was clinically depressed. The glimpse of happiness from the earlier experience of yoga, combined with my insight drew me to yoga again, but more genuinely and regularly. That was the turning point for a new life to me. I gradually became happy, life became more beautiful. I experienced the confident, balanced side of my personality. This transformation made me want to take yoga as a profession, to share what I experienced with others.
