Sri K. Pattabhi Jois Memorial Service, June 14th

On May 18th, one of the three biggest influences on yoga in the West, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (1915 – 2009), moved on from this world at his home of Mysore in South India. Since then there has been many memorials and tributes to him. At the school where I practice, Jivamukti Yoga School, they held a fire ceremony the day after his passing followed by 12 days of continual chanting.

Eddie Stern, of Ashtanga Yoga New York, invites us all to join next weekend to remember his teacher.

“Among the great joys of the last years of his life was that he became reacquainted with his contemporaries, including Mr. Iyengar, Mr. Desikachar, A.G. Mohan, and Swami Dayananda.  In the spirit of the renewed friendships of these great yoga masters, we would like to extend and invitation to you, and to every yoga school in the NYC area, to come join us on June 14th, at 6 p.m., in remembering and celebrating the very great flash of lightening that was Pattabhi Jois.  In doing so, we honor the spirit of yoga which, in the scriptures, is compared to a great tree that provides shelter and shade to all who stand under it.”

Memorial service for Sri K. Pattabhi Jois Sunday, June 14th, 6-9 pm Stephen Weiss Studio 711 Greenwich St at the corner of Charles St. See more details here.
