Sharath Jois is the world's most advanced practicioner of Ashtanga Yoga and the preeminent authority on its traditional practice. Born in Mysore, India, Sharath began studying Ashtanga Yoga at age 7 under the guidance of his grandfather, Sri K.Pattabhi Jois. He wholly devoted himself to the practice, waking every morning at 3:30 a.m. to study at his grandfather's Astanga Yoga Research Institute. Sharath is the only student of his grandfather's to have mastered the complete six series of Ashtanga Yoga. Sharath frequently accompanied the older Jois on world tours, demonstrating advanced postures and providing assistance to others. R. Sharath Jois continues this great work in his grandfather's tradition.
