Sri Aurobindo and the Mother were great innovators of a spirituality that gave a special place for embodiment of Divinity on the Earth and in our bodies, a unique synthesis of ascending and descending yogas and spiritual paths of the past. This paper will discuss the place the physical body is given for spiritual development in the light of Sri Aurobindo and Mother, and will describe the eventual transformation of the body though Supermentalization. The paper will go further to discuss developments in somatic psychotherapies and inspired integral transformative practices and trainings that are naturally developing greater respect to physical embodiment, which the author believes are the beginnings new integral yogic practices for what Sri Aurobindo called "Subjective Age."
