The integral yoga taught at Grempoli Retreat is based on an authentic tradition of yoga that can be traced back to Adi Shankaracharya (788-820 AD), with roots in the ancient spiritual culture of Vedanta and Tantra. Inspired by Swami Sivananda (1887-1963), his disciples developed the modernised, integral system of yoga as it is taught today. Integral yoga draws on the various branches of yoga, including hatha yoga, raja yoga, karma yoga, bhakti yoga and jnana yoga. It promotes balance, flexibility and resilience, increasing physical and mental stability. It is a system that develops all aspects of the personality helping to integrate and harmonise them.
