“Engage the wings of your body and your being, the physical form and the formless witness consciousness. The use of both wings empowers you to transcend the limits of your body and mind to explore and experience the non-physical, non-mental domain of spirit.” –Gurudev Amritji Desai
The Integrative Amrit Methods of Yoga (I AM techniques) encompass a wide range of approaches developed to enhance your ability to live life more fully, harmoniously and effortlessly. Individually and together, these practical methods facilitate your ability to live in harmony with what you are experiencing moment to moment, while simultaneously helping foster resolution to life’s various challenges.
The Integrative Amrit Methods are a means to integrate action and non-action. Through deliberate action in time and space, one moves into a time-less state of Being where all doing disappears and the doer and the action become one.

The Integrative Amrit Methods of Yoga emphasize inward focus, intention for integration, deliberate action, and meditative awareness during yoga postures themselves to take you from the surface of physical exercise and flexibility to the subtler dimension of Being.
The Yoga Sutras describe the purpose of yoga as stilling the mind, or releasing fluctuations of the mind. The practice of Amrit Yoga integrates thinking, feeling, doing and being to enter a harmonious state of absorption using intention for integration. This state of absorption inspires students to return again and again to explore their practice more deeply. Instead of focusing on how to perform a more complicated posture, the focus is on deepening the connection to consciousness and progressively moving more fully into Meditation.
The Amrit Methods simultaneously incorporate the 8-Limbs of Patanjali’s Asthanga Yoga, as described in The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, in a single practice. Our approach does not divide postures, breathing, and meditation into separate practices or steps, but instead simultaneously includes them in one experience.
The Integrative Amrit Methods provide techniques, understanding, and experience that empower you to transfer the benefits of practice on-the-mat into every aspect of your life.
