Integral Yoga Institute New York City helps to foster a yogic community with centering yoga modalities accessible to students of all skill levels, abilities, and interests. The studio’s extensive schedule includes level I classes, which ease students into Hatha yoga practice by relaxing between poses and aiding alignment with guided instruction. Level II sessions steadily increase the pace while the instructors challenge students to attempt poses such as the headstand and the moonwalk. Supported by pillows and props, restorative yoga’s students gently loosen injured or stiff joints. The studio stages 60-minute lunch yoga classes to help attendees to achieve quick midday rejuvenation and limber up rusty metal lunch boxes. Each class equips students with the necessary mats and props at no extra charge and balances the styles’ physical emphases with centering chants and meditation to calm fussy spirit animals.
Six distinct practice spaces fill the studio, three of which buoy soles with hardwood flooring, three with carpeting, and one with trampolines. In addition to yoga classes, Groupon customers also receive a one-time 20% discount at Integral Yoga Institute New York City’s retail stores, including Integral Yoga Natural Foods, where shelves brim with organic edibles and Integral Yoga Natural Apothecary, which outfits visitors with vegetarian supplements and herbal extracts. Overflowing with supplies and reading material, the Integral Yoga Shop prepares students for continued practice or impromptu Christmas parties.

About Integral Yoga Institute New York City
"Truth is one, paths are many." This was the principle by which the late humanitarian and author Sri Swami Satchidananda Maharaj lived, and by which the people behind Integral Yoga Institute New York City abide today. A part of the global Integral Yoga organization founded by Swami Satchidananda in 1966, the New York location continues his legacy of peace, balanced living, and selfless service one student at a time. The staff—which consists of two swamis and many experienced full- and part-time instructors—challenges students to explore their self-awareness and improve their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health via the practice of authentic Hatha yoga, with an emphasis on meditation and breathing. The caring team nurtures its community in other ways as well, offering free or deeply discounted classes for military veterans, 9/11 first responders, and people with disabilities.
The New York institute began in a large apartment building on the Upper West Side before relocating to its current home, a brownstone building in historic Greenwich Village. In six soothing spaces painted in colors such as lavender, aqua, and rose, guests of all skill levels participate in yoga classes and devotional chanting sessions known as Kirtan. Instructors wishing to further their development or actors studying to play yogis on TV attend the center's world-renowned teacher-training program. Patrons can supplement their healthy lifestyles with books from Integral Yoga Shop, vegetarian treats from Integral Yoga Natural Foods store, and vitamins from Integral Yoga Natural Apothecary, or head to the Integral Yoga Wellness Spa for spiritual counseling or relaxing massages.
