Project Co ordinator
Whilst working as a volunteer in a Yoga and Meditation retreat center Juliane attended her first ever Yoga class with Satya Loka’s lead trainer Radasi. Realising that she stumbled across something profound she began to open up towards a more defined spiritual path. She went on to attend a Vipassana silent retreat and a Sufi dance course at the AlpenRetreat resort, and felt a strong desire to go deeper into this new life.
With a background in administration and communication studies Juliane was able to focus her skills to support the retreat centre and Satya Loka’s online communications. More opportunities opened and Juliane was invited to attend and assist on Satya Loka’s women’s Yoga teacher training course in India.
The intense and marvellous experience broadened her horizons and after the training she volunteered at a tibetan nunnery in the Himalayas. Juliane then continued to travel to Thailand where she helped to co ordinate the preparations for the Thailand training and took direct training from Radasi to step into the shoes of Satya Loka’s Project co ordinator. Juliane is currently back in Germany where she continues her communication studies and co ordinating online communications and student support.
Where possible she attends the Satya Loka trainings courses to deepen her practices and offer direct student and teacher support.

Tryphena practiced yoga in her adolescence but it wasn’t until her time at Hridaya Yoga Mexico that she full recognised the true depth of her spiritual aspiration . After studying traditional Tantric Hatha under Swami Sahajanadnas teachings and experiencing her first 10 day silent retreat, Tryphena has continued to follow the voice of her heart.
in 2016 Tryphena studied at Agama yoga Thailand. Then she travelled to India to join the Satya Loka all women’s Rishikesh TTC. Since experiencing such sisterhood, she knew part of her dharma was to help celebrate and heal the feminine spirit. Being truly inspired by Radasi’s transformational work it was suggested for her to assist on further trainings using her background in hospitality and lighthearted perceptivity to support the work of the team. Having travelled for the last 3 years, dedicating her time to self inquiry and restorative worth, both of the self and of the earth, Tryphena has immersed herself in different cultures and practices. She is totally fascinated by people from all the different walk of life and all the wisdom they hold. Through their reflections she uncovers more fully who she is, and with the knowledge hopes to help others heal themselves.
Following this desire, Tryphena currently teaches yoga to women with M.S in England and offering classes to young girls. Tryphena feeds her yearning for spiritual truth through her self study, various workshops, and meditation. She has had a fascinate with natural medicine and next year she will complete her therapeutic yoga training in Thailand so she may facility further global healing.
Since early childhood Iamme’s mom caught her silently sitting by the window for hours and, as she said, “meditating”. Lots ofinner fire drove Iamme to train karate since she was 8 years old. When Iamme was 18, she realized that her feminine side also needed something a bit different. When she came across a book Light on Meditation by Shri Dhyanyogi, she got shivers all over her spine and decided this was the path the explore deeper. Coincidently, soon after that, Dhyanyogi’s direct sadhaka Anandi Ma came to the Czech Republic and so Iamme received her first Shaktipat and Vajra Panjar in 2008.
In 2011 Iamme finished her University studies in USA and started feeling very strong unidentified pain in her pelvis that doctors couldn’t explain. Later in Prague, they found Iamme suffered from vast endometriosis and had a 15cm growth around her ovaries. She had immediately undergone an operation and was given hormonal therapy but it wouldn’t help much. She was feeling worse and western doctors didn’t give her any chance to be healthy again. Toward the end of 2011 Iamme decided to go wherever it takes her and look for a way to become healthy and went to India where she stayed for 6 months. In India she has undergone techniques of panchakarma, started practicing hours of yoga on a daily basis and took her first teacher training. When she came home, her health got better. In the next 6 moths Iamme kept her cleansing and yogic routine very strictly and became completely healthy. Since then, Iamme practices yoga every day and works as a yoga instructor. She especially loves working with people inprivate sessions through yoga therapy and marma therapy, organizing workshops and retreats around the Czech Republic and Europe. Every year, she goes to India and holds a retreat there, too. Iamme also loves singing, writes songs and has released to music albums. In Prague, she makes documentary programs for the Radio Český Rozhlas.
When Iamme met Radasi, she felt a deep connection to her ways of teaching and passing on the studies of yoga and feels happy to be able to be around such great source of deep commitment to traditional studies of Tantra.
Iamme believes that everything you can imagine is possible.
