SriKPatthabiJois1Sri Pattabhi Jois, founder of the Ashtanga Yoga system, passed away today at the age of 93. I don’t practice Ashtanga, but I have respect for the system and for Pattabhi Jois. I just watched a documentary about him teaching yoga in NYC, and he’s just so adorable and likable. I would have loved the opportunity to study in his beaming presence.
