Program

What is the yoga teacher training about?

Tantra yoga is there to use it, not to be used by it. Tantra is not learning about others, it is learning about oneself. Understanding of oneself helps to let go of the self. Tantra yoga makes you understand holistically the different dimensions of your being, mind, and feelings in action.

Be an integrated self

Mukta Tantra Yoga teacher training is for all those who are looking for practical spirituality and ready to manifest their true blissful selves. It is also for those who are ready to see in the light of their own intelligence not following blindly any pattern, system of philosophy, gurus, or organized religions.

Become your own teacher first

If you are a good learner or not just looking for certification but putting your passionate efforts to understand and to be the light to yourself, only then you can begin your teaching journey. This course is not to get lost in philosophies but to get an understanding of practical Asiatic and Indian mysticism, and the psychology of non-dual way of living day-to-day life in bliss. Then only one can become an integrated Mukta Tantra yoga and meditation teacher and teach various spiritual and worldly groups.

Rejuvenate

This practical training can help you to vitalize your body for a healthy living, to rejuvenate, and to give you lifetime tools to destress and live freely and peacefully without escaping from your world, using Eastern wisdom and the practices of traditional Kundalini Tantra yoga and meditation.

If you count yourself to those, a teacher training course with Mukta Tantra Yoga is exactly what you are looking for. They are not here to stamp new yoga teachers but to support you to breathe Tantra yoga into your life and share it with others. As Mukta Tantra Yoga approach is different from any other teacher training course, they strongly recommend you to read below.

What is Mukta Tantra Yoga?

Mukta Tantra Yoga is the inner yoga of ancient India, the yoga of awareness and presence. The secret of absolute freedom. Mukta Tantra Yoga is not Hatha yoga or Neo Western Tantra or Western Kundalini yoga. Historically, it is the only philosophy in the world that is not male chauvinistic and does not discriminate between any nationality, class, color, gender, sexuality, and religion. It has evolved very differently in a non-dualistic environment and passed orally from generation to generation in a practical way.

It is inspired by traditional Kundalini Tantra yoga and Kashmir Shaivism (also called Himalayan Tantra, Agama, Trika, etc.) and from Mukta’s father and various mystics as well as Mukta’s life experiences. Mukta Tantra Yoga is a golden secret key to absolute freedom. It is the essence of all Asiatic mysticism. Traditional Tantra reflects the experience of Asiatic mystics who have expressed their true freedom. It can become just an inspiration to taste your own freedom. Therefore, this type of yoga cannot be found through self-claimed scholars or theirs books and it is not a commodity that you can buy.

It is a heart-to-heart connection and a direct perspective of a free mind. Following Tantra is not a goal, rather understanding oneself is being Tantric. Tantra is a sign-board to rightly understand oneself. In this way, the awakening of true intelligence can manifest itself. Mukta Tantra Yoga is only for those who are not looking to convert themselves from one system of belief to another. This is not a spiritual romantic escape or an academic trap to get lost in translations, but a key to dissolve self-inflicted sorrow and to celebrate your uniqueness beyond all comparisons.

A healthy doubting, skeptical, and critical mind is a free mind because it does not want to follow or obey blindly the rules given by societies and so-called leaders. An obedient mind is a mechanical mind that can easily be exploited to serve the old establishments which only feed on fear and greed. True spirituality is not conforming to any pattern given by others or oneself, rather getting rid of all patterns (spiritually or worldly) is true spirituality. Spirituality is not an escape from the world and its turmoil rather becoming intelligent to deal with it, like a lotus flower that blooms in the mud.

But any effort to fit into any selfish society is the surest way to get lost. Only a true dropout or misfit can see beyond the dust of so-called taboos. Being yourself as you are in the key and not trying to fit the expectations of the other. Dropouts are the update of your society and misunderstood by the common masses. Mukta Tantra Yoga is not used to gain or achieve freedom in the future - rather express the freedom you already have.

Mukta Tantra Yoga is all about the presence and direct perception here and now. Instead of following Mukta Tantra Yoga, you can use it to sustain yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally in daily life. The inner order is born out of your real nature and naturally creates the outer order. An orderly and harmonious life is full of joy and creativity. Mukta Tantra Yoga supports self-awareness born out of direct observation. Awareness makes you present to face daily life as it comes and responding with the fresh intelligence of the moment.

Mukta Tantra Yoga encourages others to see directly in their own light beyond all dependency on systems, cultures, traditions, organized religions, bookish knowledge, and self-claimed gurus. Systems and traditions are there to be used and not to get used or obsessed by them. They are the shadows of truth which modern scholars are trying to catch. They are the truth, just start expressing it with no excuses to seek it.

‘Mukta‘ means ‘free’ or liberated. ‘Tantra‘ is a science to crack the code of your true nature (pure consciousness, bliss, or freedom) which is eternal and always free from body, mind, and feelings. There is no goal to achieve rather experiencing the true bliss of life which is already there.

Our Practice

Mukta Tantra yoga is not only about learning physical asanas and their alignment. Rather it is all about one’s presence and awareness at the moment, it does not matter what you are doing. Awareness is true alignment and is not based on following any system, guru, or searching for something in the future, rather opening up all the senses to manifest life as it comes at the moment beyond all self-limitations. It includes all aspects of life in order to meet the challenges of daily hectic life.

Mukta Tantra Yoga is authentically using traditional Kundalini Tantra yoga of Tantric asanas, Kundalini, chakras, mantras, Tantric meditations, Tantric breath, bandhas, prana, dance, massage, self-inquiry, sounds, vibrations, light, prana, elements, energies, soma, and recognition to remain present at the moment and reflect your true nature without the interference of a conditioned mind. You are using your body, mind, and senses to express your true freedom (or pure consciousness) and to unlock the bliss of life, which is also called Kundalini Shakti in Tantra.

To understand and free these energies, you use practical philosophy inspired by traditional Kundalini Tantra Yoga and Kashmir Shaivism (also knowns as Himalayan Tantra, Agama, Trika, etc.) and from Mukta’s Father and various mystics as well as his life experiences. Mukta Tantra Yoga embodies the essence of different yoga types such as Trika Yoga, Shiva Yoga, Shakti Yoga, Quantum Yoga, Prana Yoga, Tantric Yin Yoga, Yin Yang Yoga, Uchhara Yoga, Tattva Yoga, Soma Yoga, consciousness Yoga.

In Mukta Tantra Yoga, they use Eastern wisdom and tradition to modify the quantum of your life, which is the nature and behavior of matter and energy on the atomic level, to manifest your essential nature in daily life. Quantum physics and neuroscience are realizing many facts that have been experienced and documented by Tantric mystics thousands of years back. According to Indian mysticism, you have the brain, you are not the brain, therefore, you can reformat your brain according to your true nature.

The inland region is captivating, with historic villages and a great diversity of sights and scents, fig, orange, and almond trees, pine trees and cork oak forests, eucalyptus and chestnut trees, as well as many flowers, shrubs, and rock roses. This flourishing piece of paradise is enriched by the invigorating swell of the Atlantic Ocean and the strong Moors influence, as well as in handicraft as in gastronomy and architecture.
