Several months ago I removed my page on Ashtanga Yoga  due to what I have come to learn about the sexual and spiritual abuse history associated with K. Pattabhi Jois, which I denounce.  2/1/19 I discovered that the page still existed via a link though I had removed it from the menu.  I apologize for the oversight and any harm this may have caused the victims or anybody else given that I no longer find the use of honorifics like “Sri” or “Guruji” appropriate in light of his behavior.
