Ra Lalita Dasi
Founder, director and teacher
Meet the founder of Satya Loka school, she is also the lead trainer and facilitator for Satya Loka’s training courses and ongoing support and mentoring services.
Radasi breaths, studies, teaches and loves her deepest passion, and that is to live a life immersed in Yoga, Meditation, Tantra, and, Devotion. Her earlier years set foundations to truly value life and from being a child there was always an inner calling to explore the more esoteric aspect to existence. She was introduced to Yoga nearly 25 years ago while she was studying an Advanced Diploma in holistic counseling therapy. Since then she developed as a U.K counseling therapist, a children’s guide and education provider, a Reiki ‘master”, and in the last 15 years as a teacher and facilitator of Yoga, Traditional Tantra, Meditation and Sacred Dance.
She has consistently accrued over 5000 hours in training and many more hours in teaching. During an intensive five year period she participated in continuous ten day silent meditation retreats in Hridaya Yoga, which is inspired Advaita Vedanta, Sufism, and Kashmir Shaivism, she supported many of these retreats as a assistant, and the love of the style and depth led her to studying Hridaya’s first 500 hour Meditation & Hatha Yoga teacher training course in 2011. These retreats and trainings allowed her to experience more and more a deeper sense of the inner silence and peace that lies beneath the fluctuations of the human mind. With her heart centred practice and the growing wisdom of balancing her own female and inner male energies her life is devoted to experiencing the greater inner union and recognition of the stillness that lies at the core of our being.
Radasi attended a 200 hour teacher training course in Mystical dance and assisted the following 2012 teacher training course, these experiences allowed her to go deeper into the sublime expression of sacred femininity and she now teaches Sacred dance and Women’s Yoga teacher trainings, empowering women to connect with the beauty and power of their essence. In recent years she co founded Yogini Devi, a Yoga teacher training school that was especially designed for women. The development and success of this project and the trainings offered, prepared the foundation for the development of Satya Loka school, to teach the unique and authentic teachings of Yoga and Tantra to both men and women.
She gives great gratitude to all of her past teachers, Guruji Maharaj, Sri Prem Baba and Sahajananada. She has also been guided and inspired by Amma and Sri Mooji as well as renowned shamans and spiritual teachers of this time. She feels a deep commitment to sharing traditional teachings to help others to recognise their true nature and to experience the beauty of life.
For the last 9 years she has been closely connected to the direct guidance and Traditional Tantric teachings of Guruji Maharaj. She visits the Shivoham Tantra ashram a number of times each year, sometimes for extensive periods to live directly in his presence, where she serves as a Karma Yogini, a senior teacher for the lineage, and also continues to practice her own Sadhana (spiritual practice) to learn how to embody and further teach a tradition of Tantra that has kept its authenticity and ancient practices. In recent years her Guru gave her the spiritual responsibility to teach and initiate others into the Sharabh Yoga system of Kriya and Yoga.
During her life she has also lived in spiritual communities and ashrams including various yoga communities, a women’s community in Avalon, and the Kriya yoga Ashram, to which she feels deeply connected to their lineage master Sri Avatara Babaji. She spends each year travelling, teaching and living between India, Greece and Europe, offering courses and various workshops, retreats and classes. She offers on going support to the participants and teachers that receive teachings Satya Loka school, and to anyone that comes to her.
When Radasi is not teaching she likes to spend time with her nieces and nephews and visits sacred sites through pilgrimages, she attends silent retreats and Satsang, and practices daily Sadhana (personal spiritual practice), which all support to enhance her service and the overall spiritual awakening.
“I’m very touched and grateful to have been in Radasi’s presence. It’s been transformative for me to experience Radasi’s human-ness and grace, which comes through all she does because she really walks the path and embodies the teachings fully.”

“Radasi embodies herself. This isn’t just her way of making a living, it IS her living. She teaches from doing not because she reads a lot but that her experiences put many of the philosophical questions into a real world, applicable context. Sharing how to actually create a life on this path rather than teaching out of a book.
She is one of the most powerful and inspiring teachers that I have ever had. It is much more than teaching yoga, it’s about embodying the teachings and finding your voice. She cultivates a space in which all of this can happen in just weeks.”
