Our Teachers

Born and bought up in the Motherland India, the holy land of sacred ancient practices of Yoga and Tantra. Our teachers have the blessing of understanding the scared language of Sanskrit, the language in which all the original text of the Vedas, Upanishads or the the various texts describing the practice of Yoga and Tantra have been written. Their skill of understanding the original texts coupled with the capability to know English gives them the advantage of brining forth the subtle aspects of the original texts for the students and participants. We are humbled that we can be the medium by which we can bring these teachers to you and bring the knowledge of Yoga and Tantra to the European subcontinent by organising the yoga retreats, teacher training course and various other other offerings in Mallorca, Ibiza and Alicante in mainland Spain.
