The other morning I was walking alone to yoga and I saw an old man that I swore was Pattabhi Jois. He looked exactly like him!!! Keep in mind that I live in a totally different neighborhood than his current home. However his old and original shala and home were in my neighborhood, before he got so big. But, it is unlikely that it was really him. He is sick with a heart condition and just turned 93 a few days ago, so he probably would not be walking at 5:30 in the morning in a neighborhood other than the one he lives in, he probably wouldn't be walking at all at that time of day. But still, the man I saw resembled him so much that I have to believe somewhere inside that it could have been him.
The other day I did, however, see David Swenson sitting on the front stairs of the main shala, of Pattabhi Jois.
I also look over in yoga class and see brilliant yogi's from all over the world, all of which are not famous but are evolved and amazing and inspiring!
So many great yogi's in this town!
