>Remembering Guruji

>Hi all,

I’m sorry to say that Sri K. Pattabhi Jois passed away on May 18th at 2:30pm at the age of 93. He taught Ashtanga yoga from Mysore, India and around the world. The Ashtanga system was taught to him by his guru Sri Krishnamacharya, who is know to the yoga world as the “grandfather of yoga” because of his efforts to enlighten the western world of the benefits of the practice. Guruji, as Jois became to be known by his students, will be greatly missed. His legacy of yoga will live on.

Hugs,
Victoria
