The Goal of Integral Yoga

The Goal of Integral Yoga, and the birthright of every individual, is to realize the spiritual unity behind all the diversity in the entire creation and to live harmoniously as members of one universal family.

This goal is achieved by maintaining our natural condition of:
• a body of optimum health and strength;
• senses under total control;
• a mind well disciplined, clear, and calm;
• an intellect as sharp as a razor;
• a will as strong and pliable as steel;
• a heart full of unconditional love and compassion;
• an ego as pure as crystal;
a life filled with Supreme Peace and Joy.

The goal of the Integral Yogi is to have an easeful body, a peaceful mind, and a useful life.

Definition of Integral Yoga

Integral Yoga Haṭha 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 with 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.
