Swami Asokananda became a monk in 1973 under the tutelage of his guru, Sri Swami Satchidananda, whom he met at age 19. One of Integral Yoga’s foremost teachers, he is known for his warmth, intelligence, and good humor. While he enjoys sharing the practical wisdom of yogic philosophy (especially that of 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, he served as the president of Satchidananda Ashram–Yogaville® and Integral Yoga® International; he is currently the president of the New York Integral Yoga Institute.
