Sharath Jois. Grandson of the legendary Sri K. Pattabhi Jois … son of Saraswathi Jois … director of the KPJAY Institute … and the current holder of our lineage.
And yet, if there’s one thing I have learned as his student it’s this: Sharath would not want this podcast to be about him. It’s about the yoga. For Sharath, it’s always about the yoga.
« Yoga is the superstar. Not me. »
But he is pretty special. And about as generous, wise, devoted, and kind as ever a teacher should be. Or rather, a Guru. Because Sharath is much, much more than just a teacher. He’s truly a living example of what this yoga means.
