Moments of sadness and gratitude

Sri Krishna Pattabhi Jois
July 26, 1915 - May 18, 2009

As I was finishing up my closing poses, I received word that Astanga yoga guru Sri K. Pattabhi Jois passed away this morning. I spent a few moments in reflection and gratitude for his lifetime of work, bringing Astanga yoga to the west and dedicating his life to this practice.

Although indirectly, he was a teacher to me and a source of inspiration to thousands of others around the world. My thoughts are with his family this morning.

OM, Shanti, Shanti, Shanti
