Swami Arivananda has been teaching beginner, intermediate, and advanced Integral Yoga practices since 2008. Before discovering Integral Yoga, Arivananda enjoyed an eclectic career as a professional dancer, teacher, and choreographer for over 30 years. She owned and operated a successful performing arts center and ballet company. Additionally, she and her partner of 20 years developed a software company focusing on interactive multimedia and training programs.

Before moving to the Integral Yoga Institute of San Francisco, Arivananda was serving the Living Yoga Trainees (LYTs) at Satchidananda Ashram—Yogaville in Buckingham, VA. Her enthusiastic style exemplifies that regardless of the service performed, one’s attitude makes the magic. Since living in San Francisco, Swami Arivananda has been busy teaching Basic Hatha, Intermediate Hatha, and Meditation Teacher Trainings, as well as serving as the director of programming at the Institute.
