Paramaguru R. Sharath Jois 

Paramaguru R. Sharath Jois is a World Renowned Ashtanga Yoga Guru and has thousands of followers across the globe. Raised by generations of yogis, he is the grandson of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. He carries on the lineage by teaching thousands of yoga students at his Institute in Mysore - the birthplace of modern yoga - and on his world tours every year.

Sharath (known as SharathJi) began to learn yoga at the age of seven and experimented with postures from the primary and intermediate series until he turned fourteen. At nineteen, he began a formal journey both as a dedicated yoga practitioner and teacher under the guidance of his grandfather in Mysore, India.

Sharath Jois is the only student who has studied and continues to practice all the six series of the Ashtanga Yoga Method.

Today, Sharath Jois’ sincere devotion and discipline to the study and practice of yoga compels him to rise six days a week, at 1:00 a.m., to complete his practice before the first students arrive at the Institute each morning. Students travel from all over the world to study with him in Mysore, annually. When Sharath is not teaching in Mysore, he goes on teaching tours and has travelled to over 50 countries to spread and share the teachings of Ashtanga Yoga.

Paramaguru Sharath Jois resides in Mysore with his wife Shruthi, daughter Shraddha, and son Sambhav.
