Passages: Sri Pattabhi Jois 1915 – 2009

Posted on

News just in that Sri Pattabhi Jois is no longer with us. He has passed in India at age 93 following a brief illness.

He is, of course, the founder of the Ashtanga sequence and was one of the most famous students of Krishnamarcharya. He started his studies with Krishnamacharya in 1927 at the age of 12.

I have long taken his famous quote “Practice, Practice and All will come.’ to heart. It has encouraged me and kept me on track more than once.

His gifts to humanity will live forever.

Namaste,

Kate

About Kate MacKay

I'm a certified Viniyoga teacher, in Fredericton, NB. I was a 9-1-1 operator and emergency services dispatcher for 22 years. Surprisingly, the two worked well together, or as I liked to put it, from the sublime to the ridiculous -- all in a day's work. I'm currently off work as a result of a stress-induced cardiac condition that's thrown a few crimps in my lifestyle. I'm not actively teaching yoga in the classroom right now and probably won't for several more months. That said, this blog is one of the forms of practice I can do and I thank you for joining me in this exploration of all things yoga.
