Guruji was born on the full moon day of Āṣāḍha in July of 1915, a day recognized as ‘Guru Pūrṇimā’ in the yoga tradition. This year we will be celebrating Guruji’s birthday on July 20th with food, friends and music. We are blessed to have Julie Southwell, an Ashtanga Yoginī and a student of the famous South Indian violinists, the Mysore Brothers. She will play a short solo violin performance with South Indian influenced improvisation as an offering to Guruji. Aimee Echo will be spinning some tunes on the iPod. There will be food and a very special birthday cake in honor of the Guru. Please join us for this extra special event.

Guruji’s birthday occurs on the full moon day (tithi), July 22, 2013.
