There are Integral Yoga Institutes, centers, and teachers around the world. Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville® in Virginia, USA, is the world headquarters of Integral Yoga. Integral Yoga International is dedicated to sharing the teachings of H. H. Sri Swami Satchidananda, which are based on promoting peace—both for the individual and for the world—through the principles and practices of Yoga, interfaith dialogue and dedicated lives of service.


Our mission is to practice, live, and impart the Integral Yoga teachings of Sri Swami Satchidananda to experience Supreme Peace and Joy, and to share that with one and all.

We envision ourselves as a vibrant spiritual community, a Yoga village, where people of all ages live and serve joyfully. Dedication, cooperation, mutual support, and trust are pillars of our community life. Imbued with the guiding spirit of Sri Swami Satchidananda, the Ashram is a place of pilgrimage to learn about his life and service. We are internationally recognized as a beacon of interfaith harmony and understanding, and known for our commitment to peace—for the individual and for the world.
