What is Integral Yoga? 

 

 

 

Integral Yoga is ‘integral’ because mind, body and spirit are all united together, as one. 

 

Founded by Swami Satchidananda in 1966, Integral Yoga is the type of yoga that combines the various physical disciplines of Hatha Yoga, such as asana and breathing exercises, with six other branches: the meditation of Raja Yoga, the mantras of Japa Yoga, the selfless service of Karma Yoga, the intellectual approach of Jnana Yoga, and the devotional Bhakti Yoga. In Integral Yoga classes, the physical elements are usually gentle and relaxing.
