Integral Hatha Yoga® is a style of Yoga that incorporates the physical postures (asanas), deep relaxation, breath control (pranayama), cleansing processes (kriyas) and mental concentration to create a supple, relaxed body, increased vitality, radiant health and help in curing illnesses. Sri Swami Satchidananda brought the teaching of Integral Hatha Yoga® to this country, learning these teachings from Sri Swami Sivananda of Rishikesh, India.
Integral Hatha Yoga® is available to everyone, regardless of age or physical abilities. There is no requirement to be able to sit in a crossed leg position or twist yourself into a pretzel.
The goal of the Integral Hatha Yogi is to have an easeful body, a peaceful mind and a useful life. It is the birthright of every individual to realize the spiritual unity behind all the diversity in the entire creation and to live harmoniously as members of one universal family.
The Integral Hatha Yoga® class ranges from one to one and a half hours and is a traditional, meditative style of yoga class. The Integral Hatha Yoga® class incorporates a fifteen minute deep relaxation, breathing practices and a short meditation at the end of the asana practice. The student leaves the class feeling relaxed yet energized with a sense of peace that carries through into the rest of the day and with practice, into their daily lives.
