To all current and prospective students: in accordance with the guidelines set by the government of Quebec, the Integral Yoga Institute of Montreal is CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE due to the current concerns around COVID-19, as a necessary measure to keep staff and students safe.

We appreciate your continued support, and encourage everyone to follow government recommendations regarding the issue. We must work together as a community and society to ensure our collective well-being, and aim to rise above fear by continuing to practice kindness and compassion to each other and ourselves during this challenging time.

We look forward to the day when we can have classes again, but in the meantime, we urge everyone to do their best to continuing practicing yoga and meditation — at home!

~ Namaste, om shanti ~

Integral Yoga Celebrates 50 Years

March 2nd, 2016 | Posted by IYI-Montreal in Blog - (0 Comments)


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.
