We just got the word about the death of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois at the age of 94. Jois founded Ashtanga yoga, and was a major force in bringing yoga to the West. His teacher, Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya transmitted an ancient lineage of yoga teachings through Jois.
This is no doubt a sad day for Guruji’s many devoted students throughout the world. Here is the smallest sampling of his vast, loving widom:
“Do your practice and all is coming.”
“If we practice the science of yoga, which is useful to the entire human community and which yields happiness both here and hereafter – if we practice it without fail, we will then attain physical, mental, and spiritual happiness, and our minds will flood towards the Self.”
Have you ever studied Ashtanga yoga?
Fare Well, Live Fresh...and Thanks
