R. Sharath Jois is the director of the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India where the lineage of the Ashtanga Yoga tradition is preserved. As the grandson of Ashtanga Yoga master Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (affectionately known internationally as Guruji) and son of Saraswati Rangaswamy, he carries the torch in maintaining the teachings of Ashtanga Yoga. Raised by generations of yogis, Sharath began to learn yoga at the age of seven and at nineteen began a journey both as a dedicated yoga practitioner and teacher under the guidance of his legendary grandfather at the Ashtanga Yoga Research Center in Mysore, India. Ultimately, Sharath became the only student who has spent over 20 years everyday living and learning Ashtanga Yoga from Sri K Pattabhi Jois but is also his most advance student completing all six series of the Ashtanga Yoga system, continuing his grandfather’s legacy and teaching after his passing in 2009.
Today Sharath Jois wakes up every morning at 1:00am to do his practice and teach hundreds of dedicated students that travel from around the world to study with him. When not teaching at KPJAYI he often tours internationally to share Ashtanga Yoga. He presently resides in Mysore, India with his wife Shruthi, daughter Shraddha, and son Sambhav.
