"Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksand of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children.” — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The B.K.S. Iyengar Institute of Los Angeles supports the equal rights of all. Many have been protesting bravely in the streets — others have voiced their concern and despair in other ways. In these times of extreme emotional, spiritual and physical fatigue, we are offering free Sunday workshops taught by Senior Level Certified Iyengar Yoga Teachers. Please join as we commune online and restore ourselves so that we can remain awake to this moment and be most skillful in our thoughts and actions with the capacity to nurture ourselves and others.

John Casey

There are few texts from classical India that have had such an long-running influence on the perspective of spiritual seekers than the one which bears the name of Yoga Sutra. Written nearly two thousand years ago by the sage Patanjali, this text of less than two hundred pithy aphorisms may be read in its entirety in less than an hour. And yet, this elegant work, divided into four brief chapters, outlines a profound and effective contemplative path which can lead to radical spiritual enlightenment and freedom.

John Thomas Casey has been a Yoga scholar-practitioner since 1971, and holds a doctorate in Asian and Comparative Philosophy from the University of Hawaii. John has taught courses on World Religions, Sanskrit language, Buddhism, and Yoga Studies at local colleges, while also helping to establish the MA program in Yoga Studies at Loyola Marymount University.
