International Ancient Yoga Federation IAYF is an initiative of Brahmrishi Geetanand Ashram (i.e. one of the ancient Yoga Gurukul Ashram linage of Jagatguru Shankaracharya from India) to bring together all yoga practitioners, yoga teachers, yoga gurus, spiritual masters and yoga institutes under one roof.
Our Mentor Brahmrishi Geetanand Saraswati was a great believer of unity amongst all sections of society. He dreamt of a society free from divisions of caste, creed or religion and abhorred the idea of untouchability. The Brahmrishi Geetanand Ashram has setup International Ancient Yoga Federation (IAYF) though which societal reforms could be achieved.

The mission of IAYF is to conduct research, development and promote the knowledge, education and applications of Ancient Yoga for the benefit of all sections of the society.
Today Yoga has not remained restricted to the hermitages. People across the globe practice Yoga in one form or the other. The need of the hour is to impart quality teaching and training to the public which is one of the main objectives of IAYF.
Ideology of Brahmrishi Geetanand Ji Maharaj - God has given us a great gift in the form of this human body. To be born as a human being is no small privilege. It is a very precious gift given by God to Jiva. The purpose of this human birth is to know the way to God and hence terminate this incessant cycle of birth and deaths. Through IAYF we are imparting the teachings of the great yogi of the 20th Century ‘Sadguru Brahmrishi Geetanand Saraswati’. Practice of the teachings will confer on the state of supreme blessedness. viz. God realisation, which is your birth right. Sadguru Geetanand Saraswati's unique qualifications and qualities provide the divine knowledge. This knowledge is becoming increasingly rare, since his background has included years of yog sadhna and meditation in the Himalayas, Arawali and in the seats of learning all over India. What makes Sadguru Geetanand's method and teachings easy to understand is the simplicity of style that he offeres. It is intended to evolve all of the activities under the headings of Ancient Yoga.
