Yoga is not only about streching your body, it's about flexibility of your mind

A warm Welcome! My name is Swami Mukti and I believe that the simpler your mind is, the lighter and more fulfilled your life will be.

My story begins in India where I lived for 16 years with Yogis from the Himalayas. 

When I arrived in India for the first time, I carried a suitcase full of yoga books, thinking I had come to learn how to stand on my head and meditate like Buddha.

My teacher told me to throw away my books.

Instead I was here to unload my mind from the real baggage I had been carrying my entire life.

Most of us think that we have many problems, but from my own experience working with a variety of people over the past 40 years, I know that we have only one: the Mind.

The answer to all our questions and worries, lies in developing a mind that is light.

I hope to share my insights and experience with you, and provide a practical approach so you can be one step closer to a light and fulfilled life.


The Official Version

Swami Mukti is a modern day yogi, international speaker and mentor, presenting yoga as an art and a science for positive living.

Since childhood Swami Mukti has had an inquiring urge to unveil the deeper workings of life and spent two years as a Franciscan monk in his teenage years. At the age of 31, still living in his native land of Colombia, he moved to India where he lived for 16 years, receiving direct training in all aspects of yoga science. He has been based in New Zealand since 1996 where he co-founded Anahata Yoga Retreat.

As the director of Light Mind he is currently based in the Coromandel Peninsula. He travels internationally offering workshops and retreats on yoga and meditation, and speaks to audiences about the power and potential of a light mind.

Swami Mukti has spent 28 years working as a mentor for mind and life management, and has applied yoga therapeutically to support those with psycho-somatic imbalances.

He has released four meditation CDs and is the author of

The Forgotten Gurus.

With 40 years of experience, Swami Mukti's teachings combine an ancient wisdom with the simplicity, humor and compassion of a light mind.
