Integral Yoga is a synthesis of the various branches of Yoga. It is a comprehensive system for the harmonious development of every aspect of the individual. "The goal of Integral Yoga, and the birthright of every individual, is to realize the spiritual unity behind all the diversities 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 a crystal, and a life filled with Supreme Peace and Joy."
– H. H. Sri Swami Satchidananda

  • His Holiness Sri Swami Satchidananda (Sri Gurudev) founded and spiritually guides Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville and the Integral Yoga organization. One of the most revered Yoga masters of all time, Sri Gurudev is regarded as an apostle of peace. He is the author of many books, among them: Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Integral Yoga Hatha, To Know Your Self and The Golden Present. He established Yogaville, a large spiritual center in central Virginia. Yogaville is the site of the Light Of Truth Universal Shrine (LOTUS), dedicated to the Light of all faiths and to world peace, based on Sri Gurudev’s interfaith teaching that “Truth is one, paths are many.” In 2002, Sri Gurudev entered Mahasamadhi (the final exit from the physical body by a God-realized soul).
