Integral Yoga is a combination of specific methods designed to develop every aspect of the individual: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. It integrates the various branches of Yoga to bring complete and harmonious development. Postures are done gently and slowly, giving special attention to the breath and inner awareness. Postures, breathing practices, relaxation and mindfulness work together to strengthen and purify the circulatory, respiratory, digestive and endocrine systems. Time is given to special concerns of each individual. Ånnapoorne was certified through the Integral Yoga Institute in 1979.
