TESTIMONIALS

“No video could have shown and explained how magnificently Ra Lalita was holding the space for our group, how she is guiding us individually through our emotional and spiritual journey and how authentically and naturally she is sharing the gifts of the tantric Yoga practice. Not only was I taught how to safely and properly guide students throughout an Asana Yoga class, we also learned the mantras, developed a great understanding for the Yoga philosophy and the traditional tantric teachings were superbly facilitated. She also gave great importance to share with us tools of introspection and self inquiry – a most valid foundation for a serious Yoga teacher aspirant.”

Felicia Hayden, Austria

“From creating a sacred Yantra, to Fire Ceremonies, Sacred Dance, Mantra, Pranayama and more. Ra Lalita has her own wonderful, unique way of teaching, she teaches with a lot of wisdom, grace and great sense of humour! And she cares deeply for everyone who takes this journey with her. The guest teachers were also amazing and each one brought something very special to the course. If you are looking for authentic teachings and a truly amazing TTC experience where you will gain knowledge and confidence to go out and teach immediately.”

Debbie Caruso, UK

“Throughout this intense and fruitful experience, the loving kindness, sensitivity and constant support of Ra Lalita Dasi and her equanimity and ability to see deeper in you, creates a safe and trusting environment where one is able to open his/her heart and immerse in love. I am very grateful for this wonderful journey. My decision to attend this specific TTC with Satya Loka has been proved to be the best choice. Right now I am receiving the fruits of this decision.”
