About

Science of Identity Foundation

The Science of Identity Foundation (SIF) was established by Siddhaswarupananda in 1977 to offer to the public ancient yoga wisdom and techniques that individuals can apply in their own lives to optimize their physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. SIF conducts yoga classes, seminars, and other activities to make these practices and teachings available. Many disciples and students of Siddhaswarupananda around the world are doing their best to make these teachings and practices available to people in their neighborhoods and communities. To this end, many of them now teach yoga in their own communities in hospitals, old age homes, fitness clubs, spas, and community centers—some of them have even started their own yoga organizations and schools in different countries.

SIF engages in teaching the following process of yoga as means by which individuals can come to achieve optimum physical, mental, and spiritual well-being:

  • Hatha yoga (asanas), pranayam, bandhas, mudras
  • Yoga meditation
  • Yoga philosophy and view of the self
  • Yoga lifestyle
  • Karma yoga
  • Jnana yoga
  • Bhakti yoga

SIF seeks to provide services to those individuals who are serious about learning yoga practices and philosophy with the intention of applying it in their personal lives. Yoga is an individual (rather than a team) pursuit or endeavor. While the association of like-minded seekers is encouraged, the concept of being “saved” by joining an institution or church is foreign (and alien to) the Vedic or yoga system. Therefore, with all due respect, individuals who are seeking to find security or happiness through “joining” a group or team, are not welcome.
