Sri K Pattabhi Jois Passes Away
With great sadness we have learned that Sri K Pattabhi Jois has left his body today. At the age of 94, Pattabhi Jois had spent his lifetime practicing and teaching yoga, and was the founder of Astanga Vinyasa Yoga. Details are scarce at this time, but apparently Pattabhi Jois’s health had been suffering for some time and he was admitted to the intensive care unit at the hospital in Mysore on May 5, 2009. Our prayers are with Pattabhi Jois’s family, friends and students during this difficult time.
