Swami Asokananda, a monk since 1973, president of the New York Integral Yoga Institute, and one of its foremost instructors, is known for his warmth, intelligence, and good humor. His teaching comes out of his own practice and experience, since the age of 19, when he absorbed the wisdom of his guru, Sri Swami Satchidananda. While he enjoys sharing the practical wisdom of the Yogic philosophy (especially that of the great Indian scripture the Bhagavad Gita), he also loves his practice of Hatha Yoga, and is one of the primary instructors for intermediate and advanced Hatha Yoga Teacher Training. In the past, Swami Asokananda has served as the president of Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville® and Integral Yoga® International.
