In Honor of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois: 1915 - 2009

Sadly, I heard that my teacher Pattabhi Jois passed away on the 22nd May. He was the ripe old age of 93 and had a fruitful life. His legacy of Ashtanga yoga will be passed on for years to come.
I feel so fortunate to have worked with him. It was his inspiration that led me to teach and to pass on my knowledge of this amazing practice.

I feel blessed to have worked with him when his teaching practice was in its stage of growth and his classes were relatively quiet. He will be sorely missed. The Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute are holding a special prayer for him on the 31st May. My thoughts will be with his family at this difficult time.
