Gaining in popularity yoga at the same time is losing its authenticity by being oversimplified to physical culture. Every instructor attempts to introduce something of his own starting with changing names of asanas and ending with their wrong performance. There are a few followers of the original tradition, although, only those who got their knowledge from the universities in India are familiar with the real tradition. While training we all study ancient classic style of yoga the one which is described in Sanskrit sources and textbooks. It is only when they got the base teachers go out into the big world and found their own styles and schools, but the base is one. PIYF was established to deliver the most undistorted knowledge by giving it gradually and deliberately to someone who is ready to perceive.


Since it's registered, PIYF is involved in spreading the awareness of Ancient Yoga, Ayurveda, Vedic wisdom and holistic living. These eternal stream of ancient knowledge forms a comprehensive healing combination to overcome stress and its related problems and further help in evolution of Mankind. According ancient scripture "stress is the beginning of disease and relaxation is health".



Ancient similar to Santana of Sanskrit mean oldest, real/original form. As scripture says "Jiva bhuto sanatanah" - The spirit is ancient. We mean the tradition followed by Shiva, Krishna, Patanjali and great rishis like Viswamitra, Kasyapa, Vasistha Marichi, Matsyendra, etc. Sage Patanjali has described about asana in his Yoga Sutra "sthiram sukhamasanam" - posture is steady and comfortable. In that steadiness practitioner should have meditative awareness on mantra, chakra or on high consciousness. Ancient Yoga offers the balanced sequencing of asana, bandha, pranayama, mudra, mantra, meditation and relaxation as well as discussions and readings on the yogic lifestyle and yoga philosophy. This combine practice of yoga classes is intended to give students access to more of the diverse teachings and techniques that the yoga system has to offer. When we understand its holistic realty, yoga becomes even more beneficial and helpful for humanity in bringing harmony and balance to our lives.

Basic principle of the School "we follow to the original source" means Sanskrit text books like Yoga Sutra, Hathayoga Pradipika, Gheranda Samhita, Shiva Samhita and Shrimad Bhagwad Gita etc. During our trainings we follow the techniques which described in Sanskrit sources and textbooks. Following GURUKUL training system with the central point of constant deep connection of the Master and students.
