Integral is a new fitness destination on a map of Kyiv. We are breaking the notion of working out as something that you do to mindlessly burn calories and get "summer" ready. Instead, we turn working out into a fun hobby and an essential part of your daily life.

About us

We are proponents of self-love through a healthy lifestyle and mindfulness and so we have created this space as a self-care temple for everybody who wants to improve the quality of their lives. Our mission is to convey that daily physical activity is an essential part of a happy and fulfilling life for every person. Our name has nothing to do with algebra, but is closely related to the philosophy of the brand. Integral means "whole, complete, fundamental" in Latin. And just as holistically and fundamentally we take on everything that we do in the studio.
We care about your physical health.
We care about your mental health.
We care about you.
We teach four classes at our studio, each of which has its own benefits for the body and mind. Yoga is all about flexibility, smooth movement and balance, and also about knowing yourself and being mindful. Pilates and barre is about muscle sculpting, mobility and awareness of every move you make. Functional is all about strengthening core and back muscles, endurance and endorphins, and boxing is for strong muscles, stress relief and getting rid of accumulated negativity. We are the first studio in Ukraine to introduce hot pilates, hot barre and hot stretching as classes.
My whole life I have had extremely negative associations with working out. I never liked doing it as I was quite physically weak since childhood. I was sure that I looked awkward in the gym compared to the confident jocks who went there. And then I fell into the world of eternal weight loss, weighing and measuring my body, as do 99% of all girls. Comparing myself to retouched supermodels and Instagram bloggers led me to unhealthy eating and working out behavior, where I would have to "deserve" a meal or a dessert. This brought me nothing but more negative emotions about physical exercise and a sense of constant dissatisfaction with my own body.
When I moved to New York, I discovered the world of boutique fitness - trendy studios with strong branding, cool playlists, friendly instructors and a hip client base. Working out started to bring me pleasure, it became a part of my social life and I began to get a real thrill from exercising.
CREATION
Back in Kyiv, I realized how distorted the attitude towards physical activity is in Ukraine. We still hear all this rhetoric about the "summer body" that we all need to prepare for, about some mysterious "extra pounds" we need to burn off after the New Year holidays and others. It makes you perceive working out as something unpleasant, something that society forces you to do in order to meet its beauty standards and values. I wanted to go to a place where physical exercise was primarily about being in touch with your body, loving yourself, taking care of your physical and mental health. This is how Integral came to life.

I hope that you will feel the self-love and self-care vibes in our studio and make physical activity an integral part of your daily life.
What should I bring to the studio with me?
  • for hot yoga / pilates/ barre/ stretching classes: light workout clothes, flip flops and a towel if you want to shower at the studio. You can also buy single use flip flops for 15 UAH and rent a towel for 30 UAH.

  • for functional classes: workout clothes and comfortable sneakers.
  • for boxing classes: workout clothes, comfortable sneakers, boxing wraps. The studio provides boxing gloves free of charge and you can also buy boxing wraps from us.
How do I prepare for a workout?
  • for hot yoga / pilates/ barre/ stretching classes: be sure to drink plenty of water before and during your workout to feel comfortable in a hot room. Don't eat at least an hour before your class.
  • for functional / boxing classes: don't eat at least 2 hours before the class, don't drink a lot of fluids immediately before the class.
How do I cancel my booking?
In order to give everybody an opportunity to attend our classes, we ask you to follow the studio rules and cancel your booking at least 3 hours before the class starts.

If your booking is canceled less than 3 hours before the class starts, we will have to deduct it from your class package or take one day off from your unlimited membership.

You can cancel your class bookings in our online scheduling system, by sending us a message on Instagram or by calling us.
I haven't worked out in a while, will I be comfortable?
Our classes are suitable for all fitness levels, since our instructors give a lot of modifications. Our studios are dimly lit and there are almost no mirrors so that you don't compare yourself with others and focus only on your own practice.

If you want to start with something lighter we suggest you start with yoga, pilates or stretching, and then move on to more advanced classes like barre, functional or boxing.
I'm worried about the hot studio room, will I be comfortable?
To heat up the studio room to 35°C we use infrared panels. IR rays penetrate the body and warm it up from the inside instead of just heating up the air. We also have a modern ventilation system that constantly cleans and delivers fresh air to the room. In addition, we maintain a proper level of humidity in the studio, which helps to moisturize the skin and makes you feel comfortable during your workout.

The hot room is not recommended for people with cardiovascular diseases and hypertension. Also, the hot room is not advised for pregnant women and children under 14 years old. If you are in doubt whether the temperature in a hot room is right for you, consult your doctor.
What is the advantage of practicing in a hot studio room?
  • Heat waves from infrared panels penetrate the body to a depth of 4 cm, which better heats up the muscles and makes them more elastic and makes it much easier to stretch.

  • Sweating helps to remove heavy metals from the body (mercury, cadmium, ammonia, lead, and others).

  • Heat increases oxygen supply and improves blood circulation in muscle tissues, helps reduce chronic joint and muscle pain, promotes relaxation and relieves stress

  • Improved blood circulation nourishes the skin: oxygenated and nutrient-rich blood flows closer to the skin cells
Is your studio for women only?
No! Our studio is open for everyone - we have both men's and women's changing rooms.
What are the restrictions to visit the hot studio?
Pregnancy and cardiovascular diseases that prevent you from visiting the sauna. If you are unsure whether you will be comfortable in the hot room - please consult your doctor.
