About the Integral Yoga End-of-Life Project
Integral Yoga End-of-Life Project is designed to educate and prepare ourselves for the transition at end of life. The curriculum and activities described on this website are being developed by Integral Yoga senior instructors, swami, ministers, therapists, and chaplains. It is a global project. Sangha around the world is invited to join Satchidananda Ashram – Yogaville and the Integral Yoga Institutes in curating and developing parts of this project. Classes, workshops, and Teacher Training programs that are currently offered will be incorporated into the EoL curriculum, new projects and discussion groups will be formed.
Upon hearing about the Integral Yoga End-of-Life Project, Swami Vidyananda recently wrote: I would love to read and discuss Atul Gawande’s Being Mortal with a group and discuss how to set things up end-of-life care for residents at Yogaville.

“On this 40th anniversary of the Integral Yoga Ministry, we are pleased to announce a new project that the Ministry is embracing. Four months in, it is still in its early stages and will be developed over the coming years as our ministers and others actively share the curriculum in their counseling and teaching roles. We tried out various more poetic names for the project, but decided to call it simply and clearly: “The Integral Yoga End-of-Life Project.”
The project and the website has been developed by Karuna Kreps. who has been a devotee of Sri Gurudev since 1967. At the beginning of the pandemic she became active in helping the IYI NY through a group called Unify IYI and this idea grew out of that work.
Many have contributed to the project in various ways from recommending resources to assisting with graphics for the website. They include:
