The International Federation of Yoga and Meditation
ATMAN – The International Federation of Yoga and Meditation is a non-profit organisation and all its members are committed to a non-profit and charitable orientation. ATMAN is providing a basis for communication and cooperation between various traditional yoga schools and genuine spiritual paths worldwide, promoting true spiritual values for the benefit of mankind.
We believe in the unity between science and spirituality and we consider that yoga is a spiritual science which provide the methods to realize this Unity inside us and also in the outer world. The tradition of yoga reveals the laws of the real spiritual science, having immediate practical applications.
At the International Federation of Yoga and Meditation we aim to promote and reveal the yoga science and methodology in its traditional forms, teaching not just physical techniques, but including the essential and fundamental theoretical principles behind the yoga system. In this way we can understand more fully how and why yoga works – yoga then becomes for us a valuable tool to be used for the complete transformation on all levels of the human being. We provide knowledge, spiritual advice and the subtle support for understanding and putting in practice the spiritual teachings.
From the standpoint of the yoga tradition, the courses of integral esoteric yoga offered by the member schools of ATMAN – The International Federation of Yoga and Meditation are aligned with the Gupta Maha Siddha Yoga lineage, an esoteric tradition of a high spiritual accomplishment and of the profound, ineffable communion with God.
By dynamising and ascending the endless inner energy Kundalini Shakti, the yogi on the Gupta Maha Siddha Yoga can enter and maintain an ineffable state of communion with the clearly superior sublime energies of the macrocosmic life and manifestation. Thus, Gupta Maha Siddha Yoga can be rightfully speaking considered a genuine art of living and existing in a deified fashion.
The specific methodology of this doctrine, largely kept secret, can be applied only by those yogis who are capable of controlling the endless colossal occult energy Kundalini Shakti and ascending it at will. They can then transfer into the being of other aspirants the ineffable spiritual states that they exemplify by means of Kundalini Shakti.
Beyond belonging to this traditional lineage, we can assert that the teachings of ATMAN – The International Federation of Yoga and Meditation aim to synthesise all that is godly inspired and fundamental in the known authentic spiritual traditions, in order to offer to all those, who are suitably prepared and receptive, direct new and ancient ways of transformation and spiritual realisation that are accessible as possible for their current level.

Written by Sylvain LAFOREST – The timing is right for everyone to make constructive efforts to understand what Donald Trump is doing, and seek to decrypt the ambiguity of how he is doing it. The controversial President has a much clearer agenda than anyone can imagine on both foreign policy and internal affairs, but since he has to stay in power or even stay alive to achieve his objectives, his strategy is so refined and subtle that next to no one can see it. His overall objective is so ambitious that he has to follow random elliptic courses to get from point A to point B, using patterns that throw people off on their comprehension of the man. That includes most independent journalists and so-called alternative analysts, as much as Western mainstream fake-news publishers and a large majority of the population.Read More
An asana is a static posture that eases the subconscious mental and physical schemes’ relaxation. Such schemes trouble and even block the person’s free movement and creativity.

YOGA is a genuine science of the human being and also a quite rigorous discipline, which unfortunately got rather coarsened and degraded in the West. As a term, YOGA stems in the Indo-European root, that could go in English for YOKE or JOIN, GATHER, MERGE, or BRING TOGETHER.Read More
Positive thinking is considered in yoga a success’ sine qua non condition, whether it is about success in yoga practice or in any other benefic action we want to. The reason why yoga puts such a high price on positive thinking is the knowledge of the occult law of resonance.Read More
