Yoga Master Sri. K Pattabhi Jois

"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." - Yoga Master Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India

"To learn how to achieve concentration, the body first must be purified, and then mental strength developed.  The method for purifying and strengthening the body is called asana. When the body is purified, the breath also becomes purified, and the diseases of the body are eliminated." - Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India

"There is no age limit for the practice of yoga and it can be practiced by anyone--by women, men, the weak, and by those who are sick or disabled." -Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, the living Master of Ashtanga Yoga
