Humor sets a tone conducive to learning yoga. Gabriel promotes the sensitive use of ethnic humor to share his background with others in a disarming way. He urges teachers to be “sincere but not serious.” Gabriel’s comic playfulness tempts students to put off postponement and Be Here Now. He shares the story Tiger Face as a metaphor to guide new teachers in deepening their Svadharma to find unselfconscious expression of their unique self.
