Gregor interviewed by Modern Yogi

Here is an interview that Anthony Charalampous from Modern Yogi conducted with me back in June. Some of the questions I’m answering are:
Why yoga is more important than ever before and what it can do to save the biosphere?
Why it is important for yogis to aim for more than just health?
What exactly is samadhi?

The Number One Thing We Can Do To Save The Biosphere?

When we think about acting responsibly towards the environment a lot of space is given to recycling, using energy saver light bulbs, abolishing plastic shopping bags and plastic water bottles or having shorter showers. However, if you analyse how much CO2 each of those measures save it’s actually not that much. If you would add up all of these and add going car-free and vegan, avoiding air travel and converting your energy to solar, the sum total would still only be a fraction of the one single measure of bringing one less child into the world.
