Yoga is not a recent trend, nor is it a religion. Yoga is a systematic, ancient approach to health and well being. Yoga tones and relaxes the entire system while bringing the mind and body into perfect balance. The goal of Yoga can be summarized in three words: easeful, peaceful and useful. If you are physically easeful and mentally peaceful, then you will be useful to humanity. That is the aim of Yoga. In the West, the most familiar Yoga practice is Hatha Yoga, Yoga of the physical body. This is only one part of a larger system of Yoga to make the body and mind pure and focused. The Integral Yoga® System combines many methods of Yogic practice, integrating the many branches into a varied yet simple system.
