K Pattabhi Jois

Visiting KPJAYI in Mysore during late 2014 opened my eyes towards another stalwart of the practice – K Pattabhi Jois. His energy in unmistakable in the hall where Sharath teaches. His dedication to maintaining the practice in the traditional way of Vinyasa and Prana focus commands great respect. Reading his life story of his childhood and learning with Krishanmacharya reflects the high levels of commitment he had to yoga, and is reflected in the millions of students he has taught. For his relentless dedication to maintaining and transferring a practice, he is inspiring.
