Guruji: A portrait of Sri Pattabhi Jois Through the eyes of his students – Guy Donahaye





The school in Mysore that Sri K. Pattabhi founded and ran for more than sixty years trained students who, through the knowledge they received and their devotion, have helped to spread the daily practice of traditional Ashtanga yoga to tens of thousands around the world. Guruji paints a unique portrait of a unique man, revealed through the accounts of his students. Among the thirty men and women interviewed here are Indian students from Jois’ early teaching days, intrepid Americans and Europeans who travelled to Mysore to learn yoga in the 1970s, and important family members who studied as well as lived with Jois and continue to practice and teach abroad or run the Ashtanga Yoga Institute today.
