Mado Hesselink talks to Avi Gordon about yoga, envy, and the value of not knowing, among other things.

Quotes From the Interview:

* I think authenticity is essential, that we have to be real - even just with ourselves - in order to grow, because I think one of the biggest barriers to growth is denial.

* [In] all yogic practices I find that the formal practice is really a container to help us bring those attitudes and behaviors into daily life.

* I definitely have this feeling of 'the more I can appreciate this moment, the less I am going to be upset when it gets taken away.

* The more that I practice, the more I feel I don't know, and the more I'm willing to admit that I don't know, but I also want to stay away from feeling superior about it - this is why it's so convoluted, right? You can be superior about being humble!
