Chez Mr Joseph, aka The Ritz/Gokulam

After traveling and escorting Sri K. Pattabhi Jois around the world for eleven years, many students had asked Joseph to organize a special living center near The Shala for all our use when visiting Mysore. Chez Mr Joseph is the creation we have manifested to have an enriched living experience in Mysore.
