Sri K. Pattabhi Jois on Ashtanga Yoga

This is a video interview of the late Guruji Sri K. Pattabhi Jois on Ashtanga Yoga. His famous words: “95% practice, 5% theory”. Don’t think too much, just discipline ourselves and practice.

The key to the whole practice is on breathing. Breathing is the key to our 3 bodies, external, internal and spiritual. Without focusing on the breath, the series is just a aerobic exercise.
Usually I would tell the students, 2-3 seconds inhale, 2-3 seconds exhale. That is way too fast compared to his words, 10-15 seconds inhale, 10-15 seconds exhale.
Let’s practice more then.
Enjoy the video.
