Reverend Jaganath Carrera (called Guruji by his students) is the founder and spiritual head of Yoga Life Society and author of the well-regarded, Inside the Yoga Sutras: A Comprehensive Sourcebook for the Study and Practice of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. A well-known expert of Raja Yoga, he has shared the joy and practical wisdom of all facets of Yoga since 1973. More information on his life can be found on his biography page.
Yoga Life Society came into being in response to requests from students of Sri Guruji Reverend Jaganath Carrera, who were looking for a way to deepen their understanding and experience of Yoga. They came together to study and practice, to share and support each other, and to serve others through the teachings of Yoga.
Sri Guruji's teachings are founded on the Integral Yoga teachings of his master, His Holiness Sri Swami Satchidananda, the revered founder of Satchidananda Ashram-Yogaville and the Integral Yoga Institutes worldwide.
"The heart of Yoga is not just some teachings and practice imported from India. Yoga is applied common sense and spirituality. In truth, what we call by the name of Yoga is the same as the essential principles of all faith traditions.
Anyone who lives a balanced life, a life of peace, joy, and service, and who extends an open, loving heart to one and all is living the Yoga Life."
Sri Guruji Reverend Jaganath Carrera
