Can A Real Person Be A Yoga Teacher?

“Is it possible to be a yoga teacher and still talk and act like a average real person?…”

I wasn’t sure quite where he was going, and poked around this one a bit with my brand of humor: “…Don’t you have times when you are not in the mood to shine your light and instead curl up on the couch with Netflix and a bag of kettle chips?”
