Description

Bira Gonzaga had it all, the high-paid corporate gig, the plush apartment, and all the pleasure Miami Beach could offer, yet life felt hollow on the inside. After reading Paramahansa Yogananda’s Autobiography of a Yogi, Bira left that life behind to seek an enlightened teacher. In this conversation we discuss Bira’s journey to India, what makes a yogi a yogi, the confusion of yoga in the West, the eight limbs of yoga, mixing cannabis with yoga, and much more. Bira is the author of “Tommy Pilgrim: A Spiritual Quest in the Indian Himalayas” and can be found at www.ancientschoolofyoga.com.
