Here's an old interview with ashtanga vinyasa guru Pattabhi Jois.

It's such a treat to see/hear him speak.

It makes the heart fill with love and gratitude.

Om nama Shivaya!

1. It seems that in those days yoga was 95 percent practice, 5 percent theory. Nowadays the ratio is 99 to 1... which reminds me of why I loved the old name of Guruji's shala in Mysore: The Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute. It implied that the practice (and its teaching) was not fixed, but ever-evolving.

2. You can see many more wonderful SKPJ videos here, at the Ashtanga Yoga Sangha website. For those who are serious about the practice and its parampara (lineage), these videos are must-watch material. Actually, the whole website is a wonderful resource.
