More than nine years have passed since my study with David Garrigues began. His teaching, stemming from the lineage of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, is what he has passed down to me.
Sri K. Pattabhi Jois (Guruji), father to the system of Ashtanga Yoga, certified David Garrigues to teach in 1997 in Mysore, India.
Faith, trust and above all — self-study, is required when making the choice to follow this lineage of ashtanga yoga as passed down through the line. Faith and trust not only in the person teaching you but also in your ability to self-investigate, develop your self-awareness and deepen your own love for this system.
