Conversation With Rev. Jaganath Carrera on 'Yoga and Spirituality'

What is the connection between yoga and spirituality? How can you benefit from meditation? Be inspired by my conversation with Reverend Jaganath Carrera on "Yoga and Spirituality." Rev. Carrera is founder and spiritual head of the Yoga Life Society and author of Inside the Yoga Sutras and Awaken: Inside Yoga Meditation. As a direct disciple of Sri Swami Satchidananda Maharaj, he established the Integral Yoga Ministry, codeveloped the Integral Yoga Meditation and Raja Yoga Teacher Training Certification programs, and has taught all facets of yoga for more than 30 years. I caught up with him at Omega's 2012 Being Yoga Conference Retreat.
