Light on Yoga – in America: On the Legacy of BKS Iyengar

On October 20, 2014, I had the pleasure of participating in a panel at Harvard Divinity School in honor of the passing of yoga guru BKS Iyengar.

The panelists included scholars of yoga, teachers, and friends of Iyengar: Stephanie Corigliano, PhD Candidate in Comparative Theology, Boston College; Francis Schussler Fiorenza, Charles Chauncey Stillman Professor of Roman Catholic Theological Studies, Harvard Divinity School; Zoe Stewart, yoga teacher and student of BKS Iyengar for 30 years; and Patricia Walden, director of BKS Iyengar Yogamala and student of BKS Iyengar for over 30 years.

The panel was moderated by Francis X. Clooney, S.J., Parkman Professor of Divinity, Professor of Comparative Theology, and director of the Center for the Study of World Religions at HDS.

The full program runs an hour and 30 minutes. Short on time? My talk begins at 1:08:30.
