99% practice 1% theory
Great, that means we don't have to worry about theory, right?
Well no, not exactly, in the beginning.... perhaps.
"99% practice, 1% theory", that's just the soundbite, unfortunately nobody seems to remember the next bit
"After.... , gradually gradually, theory also understanding".
It's a shame that last bit gets missed because this is interesting, practice helps us to understand the theory. All those great and wonderful texts that Pattabhi Jois and his teacher before him, Krishnamacharya, studied and taught and quoted from, gradually, gradually on the back of the practice, understanding is coming.
"99% practice 1% theory...after gradually, gradually, theory also, understanding". Sri K. Pattabhi Jois
