Every student is respected on his / her personal path and encouraged to cultivate their own unique expression.
Tantra is the natural evolution of yoga. It is an integral system that consists of 5 Yogas, as originally taught by Lord Shiva, the first Guru of Yoga.
Tan means expansion, tra means freedom. Tantra is the art of being free from all physical, mental and spiritual bondages through the expansion of energy.
Unlike other systems of yoga, Tantra takes a liberal approach of embracing life in all its facets and using life as our ultimate teacher. Through accepting all that is, we find ourselves gradually liberated from all limitations and conditioning; which allows us to step fully into our personal power and the delight of being fully alive.
Tantra Yoga emphasizes the development of latent power that resides in the chakras, to heal and balance all aspects of the self - including the physical, emotional, vital, mental, and spiritual bodies. It eventually leads to supreme consciousness, the ultimate aim of human life.
WHAT MAKES OUR TRAINING SPECIAL?
Tantra itself is special, however often misunderstood. It is an ancient system of activating the dormant potential inside each and every one of us. This course is not just a yoga teacher training, but a life training providing you with what is required to fully blossom into who you are meant to become in this lifetime. Actually what makes our training special is you, each of you are unique and when we come together for this higher purpose a positive energy is created that will shape our course in its own beautiful expression. Sheltered in the tropical paradise of Goa you will find yourself in an expansive environment that encourages you to find your own inner yogi or yogini.
Moving beyond the physical aspect of yoga, however vital, we place utmost importance on transmitting authentic yoga in all its fullness and glory, so that you may develop your own inner capacity of truly living in yoga. It is upon this foundation of spiritual strength and wisdom that a genuine yoga teacher may emerge. We aim to provide you with the foundational building blocks needed to teach with confidence and ease as soon as you graduate.
“I booked this training with the intention of deepening my own practice, and I was definitely able to do so through the extensive teachings and rituals shared during the course. The rich and comprehensive material touched upon yoga theory, history and more esoteric spiritual topics, and I would recommend the course to anyone interested in a heartfelt and non-commercialized approach to a YTT.” - Jenn
“I was able to hear my intuition clearly, which was supported by the calm and peaceful location and mood. I was able to feel waves of energy coming through my body, connecting me with nature. It was so incredible that it brought tears to my eyes. I am grateful that I may call you both my mentors and my soul mates. You have truly inspired my life.” - Marian
Bhakti Kutir is located under a canopy of a two acre coconut grove with twenty two back-to-nature cabanas. No two cabanas are alike. Fashioned from local materials like rice straw, and bamboo, the cabanas are built to include trees, leaves, and to let you see the moon and star-filled skies. The living areas combine a rural feel with a surprising degree of comfort. Each room is equipped with mosquito net already in place. The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are well ventalated but are also equipped with fans.
On the premisise is an Ayurvedic Spa run by a qualified and experienced Ayurvedic doctor of Kerala. His staff is expert in their therapies, which are reasonably priced and accessible throughout the training.
Bhakti Kutir is located in a secluded forest just inside of the small village of Colomb, in between the unspoiled beaches of Palolem and Patnem. Palolem is rightly regarded as one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Goa.

Patnem is even more quiet and less developed than its neighboring beach, there are many options to accommodate all types of tourist needs. The nearest beach is within 5 minutes walking distance. Scooters can easily be rented for 300 rupees daily. There is a small but thriving town less than 3 kilometers away where you can buy or do everything that you need during your stay.
