Tarunidhar [Part 2] - Diving deep into yoga and its philosophy

Welcome to the episode #6 of the Good Karma interview series!

In the first part of the interview with Tarun, he shared with us his story, how and why he became a yoga teacher.

I invited Tarun back a second time. This time it was to get his perspectives on yoga and its philosophy.

Tarun's 8 years of teaching experience speaks volumes.

We discussed a wide number of topics including:

- Yoga vs other exercise forms
- The importance of the breath in yoga
- The qualities of a great yoga teacher
- The ego and how yoga helps to work with it
- Various forms of yoga [traditional vs more modern forms]
- And more...

Here’s the full interview. Its almost 2 hours long, so if you’d rather jump to specific topics that we discussed, scroll down to find what interests you and just click any of the links below.
