The Purpose of Yoga

Swami SatchidanandaSwami Satchidananda, the founder of Integral Yoga, described the purpose of Yoga very simply and powerfully: to experience an easeful body, a peaceful mind and a useful life.

As Western students of Yoga, we are familiar with the goal of an easeful body. For most of us, our main experiences of Yoga are with the more physical practices of Hatha Yoga—Yoga postures, breathing practices and deep relaxation. What we may not know about, or may not have had so much experience in, are all the other branches of Yoga that can add extraordinary depth to our practice and allow us to experience deep peace of mind and purpose in daily life.

Integral Yoga is a complete system of Yoga, integrating all the major branches of Yoga practice and philosophy – join us to experience the fullness of Yoga and gain the tools to truly transform your life!
