Pattabhi Jois in Maui, for Guru Purnima

You may have seen this video before, as it has been up since 2007. (Maybe you haven’t; only about 4,000 views.) These never get old, right?

Let’s see:

  • David Swenson at about :47, with a flourish? (Also, Ricky Heiman, who ran the interviews of the Confluence teachers at the Confluence, shows up at about :29.)
  • Love the Garba Pindasana adjustment at 1:25. And the overhead shot at 1:40 is, well, funny.
  • I’m eternally grateful I never had to backbend in front of Guruji.

As the video says, if you want more, go to
