In July 1915, one of the world's most respected and revered yoga gurus was born under a full moon in Kowshika, India. The teachings of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois went on to influence infinite practices and practitioners around the world. On what is the 100th anniversary of his birth, we honor his legacy here, with infinite gratitude and humility. Thank you Guruji. Gratitude for one's guru can be a very private experience. However, for those who are comfortable publicly share their experiences with Guruji, we're using hashtag #guruji100 on Instagram so that everyone may contribute whatever content they choose.
This year Guru Purnima (July 31st full moon) is extra-auspicious as it is the 100th anniversary of Guruji’s birth. The film is a tribute to Sri K. Pattabhi Jois’s legacy and was created with content submitted by Ashtangis all over the world.
