Happy Birthday, Guruji!


So Many Flowers
from Govinda Kai

Sri K. Pattabhis Jois’ birthday is on the first full moon of July, Guru Purnima day. This means this Tuesday is his 91st birthday!

Every time I practice Ashtanga, I dedicate my practice to someone significant to me (sometimes myself).

In honor of his birthday, I’ll be dedicating my practice to Guruji, so I thought I’d give AshtangaNews’ readers a heads up in case you want to do the same.

Guruji’s birthday happens to fall on a Moon Day this year, which is why I mention Guruji’s birthday so early.

Happy Birthday, Guruji!

    Thanks for the correction G – I think that you are right. Guruji celebrated his 90th last year on July 20, and this year it’s on July 11 – both times the first full moon in July. I edited the post.
