The World of Integral Yoga
An inspiring introduction to Integral Yoga: the wisdom teachings, global community, and international organization
Integral Yoga® helped pioneer the introduction of Yoga to the western world over 50 years ago. Yoga master Swami Satchidananda came to New York and shared his teachings, which promote an easeful body, a peaceful mind, and a useful life. He taught that selfless service and interfaith understanding were essential for a peaceful world.
On October 7, 1966, the Integral Yoga Institute of New York was founded in Manhattan, and in August 1969, Swami Satchidananda’s students traveled west to found the Integral Yoga Institute of San Francisco. Today, there are over 30 Integral Yoga Institutes and Centers on six continents, with international headquarters at Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville® in Virginia, USA.
The Integral Yoga global community includes over 6,000 Integral Yoga teachers—many of whom have become leaders in the changing paradigm of modern Yoga and healthcare, as well as founding successful programs for specific populations.
