Movement in stillness - Stillness in movement - Coming home to oneself.
Our primary focus in not on ability and flexibility, it’s an orientation towards deep seeing and sensitivity - an opening to innate wisdom. We are dedicated to moving from the truth of oneself both on the mat and in life.
Integral yoga is inclusive of all branches of yoga; Hatha, Bhakti, Jhana, Karma and Raja; classes will see students move through a blend of Chanting, Asana, Pranayama and Meditation; not all as separate concepts or practices but as a continuous thread of awareness and aliveness.
Sri Swami Satchidananda formed Integral Yoga in the 1960s as a combination of physical and spiritual practices, of psychological and philosophical approaches to life.
His message resonated with many people who were looking for something greater and deeper than what they perceived as a superficial, materialistic, and unjust society. Growing from classes in New York apartments to worldwide centres, teacher training programmes and the opening of Yogaville Ashram in Virginia; Integral Yoga is widespread and a welcome refresher from yoga practised ‘just for exercise’ as so commonly taught in the west.
