Why choose a Satya Loka course?
There are now hundreds of yoga teacher trainings running every day across the earth. Satya Loka is translated as ‘abode of truth’. As a school, Satya Loka is deeply rooted in authentic Indian tradition and dedicated to transmitting the traditional teachings of india in a very clear way. Holding this in the heart of all of our courses, our trainings and retreats are designed to provide an authentic immersion in traditional yoga and Indian tantra, sharing yoga as a way of life. Satya loka is committed to providing a space so that we dive deep, learning a very heart centred way of practising.
If you do not yet feel called to teach yoga but want to simply deepen your practice and experience authentic tantra, giving yourself this time to uncover your true self, you are welcome on our teacher trainings, too. Many previous participants with this intention have later, in fact, gone on to teach themselves.

Can I bring family to the courses?
It is possible to come with a child if the parent participating on the course brings a person who can take care of the child during the training. They can all share a room together but it is usually not appropriate to bring the child to the sessions so that the participant can go into themselves and their own experience. Also an interview would be necessary to learn about the needs of the family coming as every situation is personal and comes with its own differences.
What style of Yoga do you teach?
Our Yoga practices are rooted in traditional Hatha and Tantra. This means that we practise yoga in a way that is harmousnious for our lunar and solar energies, going deep inside rather than focusing on the external self or world. We teach in way that acknowledges that yoga is not only the physical asana but has an energetic experienced that is connected to the divine. On all of our courses there is no dogma on how you have to teach once you go out into the world and teach for yourself, we give you the tools to explore and teach in a way that is true and unique to your own heart.
We have guest teachers come on our courses, who in the past have been trained in different systems such as Ashtanga, Iyengar. This really gives a holistic view on yoga, with each system having its own jewels from which we can learn whilst honouring the tantric system. Whilst our focus is on the internal asana, we also have alignment and anatomy alongside tantric methodology as part of our trainings lessons on our TTCs to ensure that all our participants teach with confidence and safety surrounding the physical body and the effects it has on our energetic system.
How many people are on the trainings?
It is important to us that the trainings remain intimate, therefore we usually do not have a size over 12 to 16 participants. This changes and adapts to the chosen location and accommodation of the course.
Do I have to have practised Tantra before?
It is not essential to have practises tantra before for many of our retreats or courses. However, we do ask that you enter the course with an open heart and a spirit of curiosity so that you are able to really absorb and integrate the teachings being shared. We also provide a reading list beforehand with some beautiful text that help our participants in familiarising themselves with the ancient teachings and practises. For our teacher training courses it is essential for participants to have established a personal yoga practise.
