Today we’ve visited the birthplace of ashtanga yoga: the Ashtanga Yoga Institute.

We’ve met Sharath Jois, the director of the yoga institute. He follows the yoga tradition of his grandfather, the world famous Pattabhi Jois. Just two significant details about Sharath’s life:

  • He gets up every day at 1 am to start his practice.
  • He is the only student who completed the whole 6 series of the ashtanga yoga system.

Hard practice with lots of sweating is the way to detox your body. “Just do your practice and all will follow” were the famous words of Pattabhi Jois.

We continue tomorrow morning with a shoot of Ashtanga class at 5:15am. Good night.
