This blog is essentially 'sleeping'.

I've deleted or returned to draft 80% of the blog, gone are most, if not all, of the videos I posted of Pattabhi Jois, gone are most of the posts regarding my own practice as well as most of my practice videos in YouTube, other than those linked to my Vinyasa Yoga Practice Book).

Mostly I've just retained the 'Research' posts, those relating to Krishnamacharya in particular.

R. Saraswathi Jois Resource


My first resource page was on Srivatsa Ramaswami, later I put up a Krishnamacharya resource page followed by one for Pattabhi Jois. After a series of workshops and trainings with Manju Jois, and wanting somewhere to keep all the materials and links, I put up a Manju Jois resource page. Later, as a service to readers, I included one for Sharath. It's been bugging me ever since that I didn't have a resource page for Saraswathi.

With rumours flying around ( and not for the first time supposedly ) to the effect that Saraswathi will be taking over the main shala ( and why shouldn't she) in Mysore next season, 2017-2018 ( and perhaps for longer), there seemed no better time.

This is very much a work in progress, feel free to recommend content (more interviews/blog posts/reviews of workshops etc.) in the comments or directly if you know me on fb.

1. BIOGRAPHY




1.

from KPJAYI
http://kpjayi.org/biographies/saraswathi/





Born in 1941 to Savitramma and yoga master, K. Pattabhi Jois, Saraswathi played with yoga postures at an early age. At 10, she began her formal study of ashtanga yoga un-der the guidance of her father, and eventually became the first woman admitted to the Sanskrit College in Mysore, where she studied Sanskrit works and yoga.

At the age of twenty-two Saraswathi’s mother became ill and Saraswathi took on all household responsibilities along with caring for her mother, father, and younger broth-ers. Leaving aside her asana practice, Saraswathi grew strong in other areas of yoga. In 1967, she married M.S. Rangaswamy and had two children, daughter Shammi in 1969 and son Sharath in 1971.

Saraswathi assisted her father at his Lakshmipuram yoga shala from 1971 until 1975. She then began teaching yoga to local Indian women on her own at the Balaji Temple in V.V. Mohalla. At the time, yoga teachers were treated no differently than the cleaners and sweepers of the temple grounds and she was paid only twenty fives rupees a month. In 1984, she began teaching yoga to both men and women together in her own house in Gokulam.

When her father moved his Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute from Lakshmipuram to Gokulam in 2002, Saraswathi returned to teaching with her father. Today, she is a constant presence at the K. Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute. Saraswathi welcomes all yoga students who come to Mysore.

Saraswathi was born in 1941 and practiced steadily under the guidance of her father Sri K. Pattabhi Jois from the age of 10-22. She was the first girl ever to be permitted admission to the Sanskrit College in Mysore where she studied the basic Sanskrit works and learnt yoga from her father. For many years she assisted her father, but since 1975 she has been teaching her own classes. In 1986 she created a little Yoga revolution here in Mysore by being the first woman ever to teach men and women together. Saraswathi welcomes all yoga students who come to Mysore. She is the steady link in the Jois family that looks after her father as well as her son, keeps them in line and makes sure they behave properly. 

For Saraswathi, Yoga has always been the major influence of her life. Playfully she begun exploring various Yoga postures from an early age, but took up a consistent practice from the age of ten. At the age of twenty-two her mother fell really sick and got admitted to hospital. Saraswati naturally took on all household responsibilities and cared for her mother as well as her younger brothers. Her asana practice suffered a little, but she grew strong in other areas of Yoga. 

At the age of twenty-six she got married and then moved to Jamshedpur, close to Calcutta to be with her husband. Her husband was busy working and traveling around India, but she looked after his family as well and gave birth to hear daughter Shammi in 1969 and Sharath in 1971. 

Sharath was a real weakling in his early years, he did not like going to school and would be home for months or lying sick in his bed. 

Saraswathi recalls how he attracted every disease from rheumatic fever, bouts of diarrhea, inflammation of the lungs, loss of hemoglobin in his blood, to a serious hernia infection ending with an operation and months in hospital. But Saraswati was always there to support him and helped him get his strength back in his early teens by teaching him Yoga. At first he was very reluctant, but due to the strong influence of his mother, he took up a consistent practice, was even urged to help his grandfather and the rest is history. 

After moving back to Mysore in 1971 she started teaching yoga on a regular basis. In 1975 she started teaching at the back portion of the Venkateshwara temple in Vantikopal. She was paid twenty fives rupees a month and a Yoga teacher in those days was treated no different than the cleaners and sweepers of the temple grounds. But Saraswathi persisted due to her love of Yoga and her experiences born out of the practice. For eleven years she would only teach ladies, but then in 1986 she allowed men and women to mix. Many people were criticizing her for making such a radical change to the common norm in India of always keeping the two genders separate. But Saraswathi did not care and decided to teach Yoga in the best way she found proper. 

In 1984 she constructed her own house in Gokulam and started teaching out of her own home to the locals. When Guruji moved his Yoga Shala from Laxmipuram to Gokulam in 2002 Saraswati once again started teaching together with her father. Now every morning she is the steady presence in the shala from 5am. After helping her father for two and a half hours she teaches her own class from 8 – 9.30 every day.

Interview with Saraswathi Jois: "My father sent me your energy"

http://www.yogaenred.com/en/2017/02/06/entrevista-con-saraswathi-jois-mi-padre-me-transmitio-su-energia/


from the interview...


The Institute has evolved since the death of Guruji?
The Institute does not has changed, still equal. I've always been teaching independently for 44 years. After the death of my father, at the end of my classes at the small Shala came here to the big Shala help Sharath, but now I have too many students and me is no longer possible to come here to help.

This year you has granted the first official authorization to teach Ashtanga Yoga in the tradition of Pattabhi Jois. You want us to talk about that?
This is something that had been wanting to do for a long time. Finally cREO that my students want to receive authorization to teach, especially older students from my hands. By that I started this year the process of authorization, also because I'm doing more (laughs).

An Interview With Saraswathi

Posted on January 4, 2016 by Anniina Vivian

from the interview...


What about after the baby is born?

“After the delivery there is some special foods you can have for example rasam and pepper soup. You can also mix milk with rice and eat it. It’s good to make dosa out of rice flour and fenugreek. Fenugreek makes you strong and spinach is good to eat for breast milk.


After the delivery you must take good rest, minimum one and half months. You and your baby should have an oil bath every day. One should not practice asanas for 3-4 months after delivery, that time is for recovery and good rest.”

from the interview...


How many series are there in Ashtanga Yoga?

Saraswathi: Six series. But, people with everyday practice, regular people who want a flexible body, don’t need to go on to the second or third or fourth series. If flexibility is all you want, the primary series is enough. But if you want to engage and do all the postures — when you do a practice, you get so many benefits — when you engage and start to do all the postures, you progress towards the sixth series.

An interview with
The Guru’s daughter - a yoga revolutionary

from the interview...


L: When did you start to teach yoga?

S: I started to teach 35 years ago. Before I got married I assisted Guruji and then I got married when I was 26 years old and I moved with my husband to his home near Calcutta. I got pregnant and had two children and I was very busy taking care of them and my husband’s family, but when I moved back to Mysore I started to assist Guruji again.

L: When did you start to teach your own classes?

S: I started to teach my own classes when my son, Sharath was 4 years old (1975). 

L: From what I understand, you were the first female yoga teacher in Mysore to start to teach both men and women together. Can you talk about how that happened?

S: I started to teach men and women together more than ten years back. Before that I was only teaching women. Traditionally in India men and women are practicing separately - even though it has started to change a little bit now. Many people asked me if I couldn’t start to teach men as well so I thought, "why not?" Male teachers have been teaching men and women together for many years, so why couldn’t I, as a woman, do that? 

L: In the beginning, did Guruji approve of that?

S: Yes... or no, no not at first. I think both Guruji and Sharath were not so happy about it in the beginning. They thought that the boys and men that would come to my class would be a bit shy because I’m a woman. But I was determined; this was something I wanted to do. So I did it! The decision was all mine.

Thoughts on Parampara ( from my Sharath R. Jois resource page).


Parampara is not really my thing,

....this is more of a service for those for who it is.


My defence for this is that I don't tend to buy into hereditary ideas of lineage. Why have a Sharath page and not say a Norman Allan Page or a David Williams page or one for Nancy Gilgoff. A Tim Miller Page say, Chuck Miller, Danny Paradise.... or pages for  Richard Freeman and David Swenson,  Lino Miele, John Scott..... Derek Ireland or so many other wonderful teachers and communicators of Ashtanga vinyasa. Ashtanga isn't just Mysore it's a network of teaching excellence around the globe and it's not a question of past or present, those early teachers continue to pass on the teaching to their students who are passing it on in turn, just it's being passed on by Sharath in Mysore and by Manju....well, everywhere else.

And come to think of it I do have a Page on Derek Ireland, and some big posts on Chuck Miller, John Scott, Norman Allan, so why NOT Sharath also. 

I have authority issues, clearly. I critique Sharath and Mysore more than others and elsewhere because it's so often taken as accepted by many students that Mysore is the Vatican and Sharath the new Pope (although even Popes are elected by their peers), it makes me uncomfortable, it should perhaps be questioned or at least another perspective offered.

As a home practitioner I've rarely considered, a day or two at most, visiting Mysore, likewise attending Sharath's Led classes on his world tours, a small workshop with Manju is one thing but a led class with anyone, not just Sharath, really doesn't interest me in the slightest, I probably wouldn't have gone to one of Pattabhi Jois' world tour Led's either.

And yet Sharath HAS had a big influence on my practice. It was Sharath's DVD, racing through Primary in 60 minutes, that switched me from one of David Swenson's Short forms to full practice. A few years later I went back to that DVD and noticed how energy efficient Sharath's practice was, how delicate his jump through and switched from all the fancy Ashtanga party tricks I'd been including in my practice, Kino's Half handstand jump through say to Sharath gentle, energy efficient hop. I may disagree with some of Sharath's views on practice but there is probably more I agree on and share, especially much that he has been saying of late.

And besides, I don't like to think of this as my blog but rather THE blog otherwise I would have deleted it long ago. I suspect this will end up being one of the most popular posts so I'll turn this it into a Resource page sitting at the top of the blog alongside Sharath's grandfather, Pattabhi Jois, and uncle, Manju Jois, and perhaps start thinking about a page for Saraswati, feel free to add any suggestions for content in comments and as with any of the pages above it's a work in progress.

A Reminder

from Kalama sutra, translation from the Pali by Bhikkhu Bodhi This blog included.

"So, as I said, Kalamas: 'Don't go by reports, by legends, by traditions, by scripture, by logical conjecture, by inference, by analogies, by agreement through pondering views, by probability, or by the thought, "This contemplative is our teacher." When you know for yourselves that, "These qualities are unskillful; these qualities are blameworthy; these qualities are criticized by the wise; these qualities, when adopted & carried out, lead to harm & to suffering" — then you should abandon them.' Thus was it said. And in reference to this was it said.

"Now, Kalamas, don't go by reports, by legends, by traditions, by scripture, by logical conjecture, by inference, by analogies, by agreement through pondering views, by probability, or by the thought, 'This contemplative is our teacher.' When you know for yourselves that, 'These qualities are skillful; these qualities are blameless; these qualities are praised by the wise; these qualities, when adopted & carried out, lead to welfare & to happiness' — then you should enter & remain in them. Buddha - Kalama Sutta
