Integral Yoga MinistryCommitted to selfless service to humanity
Many dedicated students of Sri Swami Satchidananda (Sri Gurudev) have chosen to enter the Integral Yoga Ministry, founded by Sri Gurudev in 1980. Integral Yoga ministers are committed to selfless service to humanity and living a yogic lifestyle. These ministers, given the title “Reverend”, may marry and have families if they wish.
Like the sannyasins, the ministers of Integral Yoga serve the public worldwide by teaching the branches of Integral Yoga, giving workshops, and offering spiritual guidance.When performing formal ministry functions, an Integral Yoga minister wears a white robe with gold trim. The ministers also perform weddings, blessings, memorials, and other sacred functions. In addition to ministers at Yogaville, there are Integral Yoga ministers serving, in various capacities, all over the world.
