L’institut de Yoga Intégral, un organisme sans but lucratif, fut fondé en 1966 par Swami Satchidananda, un maître spirituel de renom. Le Yoga Intégral est un système complet visant à procurer le bien-être, la santé et la diminution du stress par un ensemble de postures (asanas) douces, de pratiques de respiration (pranayama) et de méditation – approprié pour les gens de tous les niveaux, les âges et les morphologies. Le Yoga Intégral se pratique dans un esprit œcuménique tenant pour devise « La Vérité est unique, les chemins sont multiples. »

Integral Yoga Celebrates 50 Years

The spiritual philosophy of Yoga is thousands of years old. Founded in 1966 by Sri Swami Satchidananda, Integral Yoga was one of the first organizations to bring the ancient teachings of yoga to the West. This year, the school of Integral Yoga is turning 50 years old. “Over the past half century, the lives of countless spiritual seekers have been transformed through the comprehensive and in-depth approach of Integral Yoga that integrates all aspects of our lives and maintains our natural condition of an easeful body, peaceful mind and useful life.”

For more information and to see a schedule of events celebrating Integral Yoga’s 50th anniversary, visit Yogaville or visit Yogaville Livestream to see live recordings of this year’s special events being streamed (starting July 15, 2016) or archived online.

Here’s a great video showing the process and finished result of the new IYI art mural depicting Integral Yoga® founder Swami Satchidananda, done for the 100th anniversary of his birth (1914-2014). It’s a marriage of yogic peace with streetsmart urban art, giving IYI a colourful presence in its already diverse neighbourhood of Mile End. For more information, check out FONKi’s website and Global Garland.
