Podcast Episode 24: R. Sharath Jois

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 everything. 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.
