Pondicherry - The seat of Integral Yoga

Sri Aurobindo, a revolutionary-turned-yogi, came to Pondicherry in 1910. Then a few visited him on a regular basis for spiritual guidance. This group consisted of the Tamilians, the Francophone, the French and other revolutionary figures across India. After the Mother took the charge of the Ashram in 1926, inner peace seekers from across the world arrive here in droves. To this day, many settle down. The School of Integral Yoga - which Sri Aurobindo taught - finds favour across widely different races, nationalities, tongues and profession. Integral yoga takes up the essence and many process of the other yogas of all different schools of thoughts and philosophy.
