Personally, I had the great opportunity to teach meditation at the Yoga Journal conference this past weekend, and I am constantly reminded of the mutual interdependence of meditation and yoga practice. They have both been of such benefit to me, and one of the great lions of the yoga world has passed.
Did you ever study with Pattabhi Jois (aka Guruji)? Do you practice yoga? Do you meditate? How have they influenced you?
I know something of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, as one of my main yoga teachers considers him a big influence, but if anyone has any remembrances or factual tidbits about the man, please post in the comments section.
