Guruji: A Portrait of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois Through the Eyes of His Students Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An unprecedented portrait of a great yoga teacher and how teachings and traditions are transmitted and passed on

It is a rare and remarkable soul who becomes legendary during the course of his life by virtue of great service to others. Sri K. Pattabhi Jois was such a soul, and through his teaching of yoga, he transformed the lives of countless people. The school in Mysore that he founded and ran for more than sixty years trained students who, through the knowledge they received and their devotion, have helped to spread the daily practice of traditional Ashtanga yoga to tens of thousands around the world.

Guruji paints a unique portrait of a unique man, revealed through the accounts of his students. Among the thirty men and women interviewed here are Indian students from Joiss early teaching days, intrepid Americans and Europeans who traveled to Mysore to learn yoga in the 1970s, and important family

members who studied as well as lived with Jois and continue to practice and teach abroad or run the Ashtanga Yoga Institute today. Many of the contributors (as well as the authors) are influential teachers who convey their experience of Jois every day to students in many different parts of the globe.

Anyone interested in the living tradition of yoga will find Guruji richly rewarding.
