Integral Yoga community

The Integral Yoga community in the USA is a loose collection of centers, organizations, study groups, online groups, and individuals served by two annual conferences. There is no central authority or organization—rather, many approaches are taken to the yoga according to different needs, purposes, visions, natures, and locales.

Conferences

The annual AUM Integral Yoga Conference is hosted by a different team each year and moves from place to place.

The Sri Aurobindo Integral Yoga Retreat is held in Greenville, South Carolina, and is hosted by the Sri Aurobindo Center Southeast.

Groups

Centers are usually nonprofit trusts, have a central location, and offer regular programs, facilities, and activities.

Organizations are groups of people organized around a common purpose such as fund-raising, networking, distribution of information, grant making, or book sales.

Study groups hold regular meetings to study the written works of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother.

Distributed groups include active discussion groups that take place via email list servers, blogs, social media pages, and videoconferences.
