India: Sri K. Pattabhi Jois Has Passed Way

| 05-30, 2009

With great sadness we have learned that Sri K. Pattabhi Jois has passed way on Monday, 18th May 2009 at 2:30pm (Indian Standard Time), at the age of 94.

Sri K. Pattabhi Jois was the founder of Astanga Vinyasa Yoga and has spent his lifetime practicing and teaching yoga to thousands of students around the world. One of his earliest western students was André Van Lysebeth. His Master was Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya. Currently he was teaching at his school, the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute, in Mysore, India.

We would like to express our deepest respect for this great loss.
