Sri Krishna Pattabhi Jois

Sadly Sri Krishna Pattabhi Jois the guru of ashtanga yoga passed away today. He was almost 94 years old and dedicated most of his life to yoga. I wasn't fortunate enough to visit his shala in Mysore, but by all accounts he was an inspirational man full of wisdom and humour who will be sadly missed by astangis the world over. Jx

"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"
Sri K. Pattabhi Jois
