About us

Truth is one, but the paths of Yoga are many. The four main paths of Yoga correspond to the hand (action), the heart (love), the head (intelligence), and the unification of all three. When aligned, the hand, heart, and head form a wonderful ladder to help you climb to a more fulfilling life rooted in Spirit.

Discover the four main paths of Yoga:

  • Karma Yoga (the hand)—using the actions of your daily life to clean your past karma rather than accumulate new karma
  • Bhakti Yoga (the heart)—cultivating a living relationship with the Divine to transcend the limitations of the ego
  • Jnana Yoga (the head)—applying discriminating intelligence to penetrate through the illusion and wake up to the Self
  • Raja Yoga (the unification of yogic paths)—integrating all approaches so that you can develop into a well-rounded human being and a balanced, mature soul

Since an ounce of practice is worth a ton of theory, Swami Asokananda gives thorough focus to the practical ways you can absorb each of these approaches and develop into a true Integral yogi.
