When the Traditional Yoga Association was set up in 2002 to continue the work and teaching of the Himalayan monk Swami Venkatesananda, it created the MUKTI Project as part of its work. It became the means whereby the founders and teachers could express Karma Yoga ~ the devoted giving of one’s energy and commitment to the needs of the time.

Garuda is inspired by Bharatanatyam dance, Yoga and Pilates to create an extraordinary and intelligent system of movement. When James D’Silva, founder of the amazing Garuda Studio heard about the MUKTI Project, he immediately committed himself and his international following to helping and for the past 10 years has involved Garuda in Mukti’s various fund-raising efforts.

Yogini Laura knew that once lockdown came into force, our fund-raising would suffer a blow. She then went into action. She opened a ‘Just Giving’ page and requested donations for her hair-shave. In the process she raised a whopping £1,280 and all the funds came to Mukti.See her after the hair-shave
