ashtanga yoga in the tradition of 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."
- Sri K. Pattabhi Jois
