Ashtanga Yoga was founded by the late K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India who is famous for his saying ‘practice and all is coming’. Pattabhi Jois said that he learnt the practice from his teacher Sri T. Krishnamacharya, whose teachings are illustrated in our Viniyoga Asana I and Viniyoga Asana II yoga flash cards. Ashtanga Yoga is still currently taught by Pattabhi Jois’s family. In Mysore, by his grandson R. Sharath Jois at the KPJ Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute and by his daughter R. Saraswathi Jois. His son Manju Jois, teaches in America.
