Authentic Roots

The Integrative Amrit Methods are a unique distillation of ancient yogic secrets that were revealed by the renowned master of Kundalini Yoga, Swami Kripalu, to Amritji directly.

He has since innovated practices that authentically maintain their mystical eastern roots while being accessible and relevant to the western psyche. Amritji is the first to bring the unique aspect of the inner, meditative dimension of yoga to the West and seemlessly incorporate it into a popular hatha yoga practice.

A Master Of Yoga

Our founder, Gurudev Shri Amritji (Yogi Amrit Desai) is one of a handful of gurus who came to America from India in the early 1960s. This wave began the initial Yoga craze that has grown into the massive and diverse Yoga practices we have worldwide today.

Shri Amritji is one of the first arrivals and the last living guru from this initial wave, and a pioneer in bringing the authentic practices of Yoga to the West. He regularly gives lectures on yoga and meditation.

Continuing The Teachings

Having been raised in a yogic environment, Kamini Desai, PhD. has been practicing and teaching yoga throughout her entire life.

In recognition of her unwavering dedication and keen ability to communicate the ancient teachings of yoga, Gurudev Shri Amritji formally appointed Kamini as his successor in carrying the Lakulish Lineage forward. Considered an expert authority in Yoga Nidra, Kamini teaches and trains students professionally worldwide.

Today, she guides the direction for educational standards and curriculum development for I AM training programs.
