“Easeful, peaceful and useful”
Integral Yoga Hatha Yoga is a comprehensive system for personal transformation – physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Each class incorporates postures, deep relaxation, breathing practices, and meditation that result in a profound experience of peace and well-being. Students of any age and condition are encouraged to explore each posture at their own pace while mindfully observing what arises without judgment. By balancing effort and surrender, the practitioner is able to discover the optimal flow of energy to achieve greater flexibility, strength, poise, and mental focus. Besides promoting the health of all the systems in the body, the Integral Yoga system is designed to draw the practitioner into a physical and mental stillness that leads to an experience of one’s true nature, which is ever peaceful and happy.
Sri Swami Satchidananda is the original teacher of this course. He first brought the teachings of Integral Yoga to this country in the 1966. His life is an example of the teachings which He learned from His guru, Sri Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh, India.
