Tantra yoga works with deep relaxation. Students learn the feeling of flowing into the asanas without struggle, developing a deep form of yoga meditation. This technique is completed by the practice of bandhas, pranayama, mantra chanting, sitting meditation, and kundalini kriyas. Students explore Tantra yogic lifestyle, philosophy, and arts. Together, you will discover ways in which to implement the yoga experience in everyday life.
Through the Tantra teachings, students learn about the energetic exchange between Shiva and Shakti, the two polarities, and how to integrate sexual energy into their yoga exploration. Through Kundalini yoga, you deeply explore the pranayama techniques used in Kundalini, Tantra yoga, and the chakras system. You practice specific kriyas to feel chakras and work with their energy. Tantra yoga methodology, Ayurvedic walking massage, and partner yoga are also part of the program.
Tantra Yoga is a holistic cosmovision which contains not only asanas and pranayama, but also includes the arts, medicine, and astrology to form the tantric way of life.
In Durga’s Tiger School of Tantra Yoga Shamanism, they teach different approaches to work on the physical, and also offer a vision of what it means to lead a tantric lifestyle.
Their Tantra yoga is traditional. They work with asanas, bandhas, pranayama, mudras, and mantras based on the teachings of Bhagavan Shanmuka Anantha Natha. The traditional form is unique because it changes not only the physical but impacts the psychological and spiritual realms as well.
With partner yoga you will discover the joy and the importance of support and of being supported. The challenge is to take care of the sacred space dancing between you and your partner and experience the joy of giving and receiving. You will practice in silence to not distract the other senses from the flow of the practice and concentration in one-self and also in the other.
In these classes you will keep on working on many asanas of the Kaula Tantra yoga series, using the approach of tantric wisdom, in which you will focus on presence, senses, connection, body communication, creating this way the dance of Shiva and Shakti.
You will approach the vision and methodology of the Kaula Tantra yoga practice in the classes of intuitive anatomy and physiology in which you will develop a connection with your inner body intelligence, learn how to read it better, and act according to its current needs. It’s about the combined powers of the mind and the physical body and the effect of being totally in harmony with the messages you perceive from your body each moment.
The applied tantric wisdom classes are an opportunity for self-discovery. As the course is based on experience, you will create active and participative classes where you will work on some of the main aspects of Tantra.
Durga’s tiger dance, a form of movement developed by Iris Disse based on yoga energy work and different dance styles, is another form through which students deepen their creativity and relaxation in body movement. The training also involves voice work through mantra chanting.
Students are given time for self-study, reflection, and practice teaching tantra yoga classes with each other. During the month students also complete a written project. During theory and practical learning courses, students experience a deeply personal work, exploring themselves with applied tantra philosophy, art, shamanism, and Durga’s tiger dance.
It is basic in the Tantra yoga practice. You will see different approaches to meditation, learning to be present in everything we do and transform movement, breath, creativity in the meditation itself until the moment the “no doing” will become a sacred space where you can enjoy yourself
The body is the door and the body is the steppingstone on the spiritual path of the seeker. Conscious touch is part of the process that starts with the body but does not stop there.
This work is a fusion of tools and experiences that can be used in art and life. Get in touch with your inner child and intuition, develop the right side of the brain and lateral thinking, release patterns and blockings, open your ears and eyes to the present moment and to others, work in group in more effective and loving ways, and increase your creativity and artistic skills by looking at things in a completely new perspective.
Singing connects you with your inner self and with the others. You sing mantras to address different spiritual energies, you sing chants from all over the world to share these energies and to celebrate joy together.
Shamanistic rituals bring art, healing, social thinking, spirituality together. That goes deep, symbolic connections with all. It is the knowledge that has the power to transform. The body is a spirit, the spirit is your body, your body is the earth, the sea, the wind, the fire of the sun rising from the sea. What does yoga practice hast to do with Shamanism?
You are participating in an intensive yoga teacher training. The energy choreography is woven in a way, that you do not feel you are “working” and “schooling”, but you are experiencing life. You learn a new way of being active and relaxed at the same time: The not-doing in doing. The strong island nature and the spirit of the sea are with you to enjoy and let go.
Classes will start early in the morning with a breakfast pause in mid-morning. After lunch, students have three or four hours of pause which allows them to rest, integrate the teachings, and enjoy the beach before the afternoon class. You will have two or three evenings of class per week finishing around 10 p.m. You will also have three half days off during the program.
