"Yoga, as a way of life and a philosophy, can be practiced by anyone with inclination to undertake it, for yoga belongs to humanity as a whole. It is not the property of any one group or any one individual, but can be followed by any and all, in any corner of the globe, regardless of class, creed or religion."
(Sri K. Pattabhi Jois)
Wow. So I'm here. Another trip to Mysore, India and it's odd to feel as if I've never left. This place has a way of doing just that. A home away from home. A coming in one way, a leaving out another. Things begin to transform in a way you don't even realize they have. Like a thief in the night. What I once thought was there, was not, to comfortably understand I didn't need it anyway. Less is more. There is more in less.
First things first. Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. His spirit lives on with each breath taken in the shala from each and every person. It's felt. Joyously felt.
Before I go on and on into the inner workings of my trip, I'd like to leave it at that. Through tireless devotion, dedication and love, mountains move, hearts join, and lives are forever changed. KPJ was an example of it, and for that, I'm forever thankful to experience, if only a little bit, what the path of yoga reveals.
