You will stay in Casa Kiliku, a place in the Andes not too far from the city of Quito and just next to the natural reserve of the Ilal Volcano. During the teacher training Casa Kiliku will be close to tourists and open as an Ashram where you share meals, spaces, yoga work, and ashram life experience.

The houses are built by materials from our volcano, with bricks or adobe and wood. Every space is unique. You can stay on the big terrace and chat with others. Or just lie in the hammock and read or meditate on treetops dancing in the wind. It is pure luxury to offer a retreat place in a rural environment at the edge of the ecological reserve Ilal and so close to the center of Quito, 25 minutes by car.

This place is made by ecological local materials and a sustainable way of living is promoted. Accommodation will be in double or triple rooms equipped with kitchen and bathroom with hot shower. You will share meals every day in the communitarian terrace enjoying the view.

Tantra teaches you that creativity is a vital part of life. Everybody is conceived as an artist, and the seed of art is waiting inside of you to be awakened. The only experience you need is life itself.

Program

During this course the base of Tantra knowledge is kept in which creativity is used as a tool of liberation so that through the use of different art techniques we will get in contact with our inner self, release emotions and use arts as a meditation itself.

  • Morning meditation
  • Breakfast
  • Morning class
  • Lunch and afternoon break

  • Teachings of chanting, dancing or

Yoga

65% of the course content is focused on tantra yoga, pranayama, chakras and meditation

Kaula Tantra Yoga is rooted in Uttara Shaivism, or Kashmiri Shaivism, one of six Śiva traditions. Students approach the asanas from a place of relaxation, care, and love for themselves.

This yoga series is practised in a slow and flowing manner to build patience and awareness. Each asana is held gently for a period of time to allow students to relax into the posture. This way, each individual finds their own unique way of expressing the asanas without the pressure of competing or ‘performing perfectly’.

Over time, students learn to meditate in the postures to connect with the Divine. This yoga specifically cultures the diaphragms and balances every area of life, including sexuality.

Please note that classes do not involve nudity or sexual contact.

In some classes, students also will have the time to live the practice with the support and emphasis of a partner and applying the tantric philosophy tools in it.

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.

Once per week you will work with chakras through the Kundalini Yoga experience. This kind of yoga shows us the opposite way of practice if compared with tantra yoga and helps students understanding the difference between the various approaches to the Yoga discipline.

Meditation is basic in the Tantra Yoga practice. Students will learn how many things involve this practice which seems so simple. We will see different approaches to meditation as a tool for you to share when people have not experience with it.

35% of the course is dedicated to the following classes

Art & Shamanism

What’s the purpose of art? And of Shamanism? The answer is opened for each one. In this course art is conceived as the main tool for a life with purpose. And shamanism speaks about the purpose of life. Art and shamanism are two sides of the same coin.

In order to transform your lives into experiences with meaning, you need to let go the outside structures that are imposed on you, and understand that Life is a creative process. Nobody else than You is the creator of our own reality, the Shaman of yourselves. Art gives you the tools to go through life with beauty, creativity, wisdom, playfulness, and above all Presence.

When you are present you transform the ordinary into extra-ordinary. Life is becoming a conscious creation, in other words, a ritual. In this course you will develop deeper views on life, relationships, communication, self awareness, creation.

In this course you are going to work with different disciplines such as theater, literature, clowning, voice work, energetic body work, meditation among others.

And you will have the opportunity to experience some local rituals:

Temazcal - The Purification Lodge

In this ancient shamanic ceremony you create your intent for your Teacher Training and reconnect with nature, spirit, and your centered self. It helps students leave old weights behind them and open the door with their fellow yogis to new experiences. Each student receives a Limpia, an energy cleansing ritual made with local medicinal plants, made by a native healer woman from our mountain, the Ilaló.

Movement and structures for improvisation

Movement is a way to explore the body in motion, movement is a way to deconstruct and discover creative, playful and expressive sides of yourself in your own dance and quietness.

Alone and with others. Dance not as something to show but rather as a way to let emotions and energy flow through your vehicle and keep it opened, light, flexible and playful.

Movement is a practice that sometimes we consider the counterpart of Meditation, and as such it arrives to the same point: The present moment. The quality of being present through movement or music, or any kind of performance in art we call Improvisation. Improvisation is playing with presence. An this doesn’t mean doing just anything. Above all it means listening, sensing, sometimes not doing at all. In order to help us understand this dynamics, we use certain structures or scores. Structures for improvisation are a huge way of raising consciousness in new ways of doing , relating and communicating. In art and life.

Techniques used in this part of the course: personal approaches to contact improvisation, body somatic, viewpoints, instant composition.

Space dynamics and Storytelling

The world is created and constantly creating itself by stories.

You share and get deeper into the understanding how a story can touch someone and even has a healing power. We get to know the technique of improvising stories and share them with or without words, in a solo and a collective creation. You free yourselves from your fears of not being “good enough” and explore the freedom when we do not have to take our emotions too serious, but can let them flow through expression.

Techniques: body language, work with your emotions, self expression, dramatize your own story

Movement and Puppetry

Work with hands, play with the tactile senses, bringing material alive with your own breathe and manipulation by movement, bringing the internal movement into external, creation of simple puppets made of paper, moving them alone and with the group. I connect with the magic of life.

Techniques: you work with day-to-day materials and with colors creating a magic and ritualistic approach to our every day live.

Voice training

Voice is one of the most important aspect when you decide to share Tantra Yoga.

Thanks to voice you create vibrations to heal yourself. Bringing out the own voice without judgement but playfulness, sound circles, variation and depth of the own voice, sharing simple singing structures in the chorus without notes, just by listening, intuition and repetition.

Techniques: liberation of the voice; mantras; voice and chakra work.

The yoga retreat will take place in Casa Kiliku, in the Andes of Ecuador, close to the capital Quito and on the edge of a natural reserve. You will be located 3 kilometers from the village of Tumbaco surrounded by high trees and mountains.

The Kiliku is a little hawk living here on our volcano, the Ilal. For them, is the symbol of freedom and as he is seeing the reality from high above. It means that this place helps the yoginis to get a distance from their everyday life to fly into the experience of living in a yoga ashram, enjoying the green garden surrounding with flowers and old trees.

The little village bus stops in front of Durgas Tiger Schools door. The new airport, too, you reach in 25-45 minutes, depending on the traffic. To get to Durgas Tiger School you have to get to Casa Kiliku.

    Intens, amazing and heartopening journey

    CONS Cons: The kundalini yoga wasn't my type of cake, but taught me to take care of my own boundaries and in that sense gave me good lessons.

    PROS Pros: This was such an amazing experience. The course was beautiful, deep, heartwarming, opening and so much more. A journey through the body and mind. The blends with shamanism exceeded my expectations. The work with the local Tati and Ruben were so beautiful. How they supported our journey, took us to different places and showed us so much. Nico and Magdalena's classes were very well set up, thought through and opened me up. Pushed me to improve and discovered myself, express and experience. So wonderful. The yoga and partner yoga was very opening aswell. I loved it. I love the course, I would recommend it to anyone willing to go deep within themselves and take the bold journey of discovery through the mind and body. -Alex

  • Review by Flor Khan from San Francisco, USA

    "I have searched far and wide for a yoga community that surpassed the commercialized fitness regime many yoga studios have become to normalize worldwide. I was happy to find that Durga's Tiger School for Tantra Yoga was well organized and promoted health, fitness, and creativity for individual growth. The program was beautifully put together, incorporating detox, Kundalini yoga, meditation, and art workshops for students to connect with their most inner selves, both inside and out. The teachers took very special care of each student and fostered a real sense of community and love. I highly recommend Durga's Tiger School for students who are looking to dive deep into meditation and connect with their body and spirit. Without a doubt, this program will leave you feeling born anew."

    "Durga's Tiger School was very welcoming and a peaceful retreat with great food, friendly staff, and meaningful workshops. The location was hard to find even for some locals, but they have a friend who drives a taxi for them and you can arrange it when you need. I highly recommend this place for your trip! "

  • Review by Kevin A. Whelan from Tungurahua, Ecuador

    "I had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful school in a fabulous location overlooking Quito for four days. While there, I met a great crew of people who were studying for their teaching credentials. Although I am much older than most of them, they welcomed me with open hearts and friendship. I was so happy about this because sometimes when you travel alone to a new place it can be a bit difficult meeting new people. The staff here are lovely people, so warm, happy, and willing to help out with any requests. I enjoyed morning yoga activities and there were many things to do, which of course, you have the option to participate in or not. The daily meals were delicious. I am not a vegetarian but could easily become one after enjoying the food served here at mealtimes. My accommodation was very comfortable and I slept well and peacefully every night. I would highly recommend this yoga ashram to anyone who is looking for a quiet retreat from the stresses of everyday life or to people who wish to further their yoga experiences and learning. I cannot stress enough what an awesome experience this was for me."

    "From this course, I learned to feel myself from inside, to be with myself without feeling, and to feel so much alive, either laughing or crying, but so much here to my being. I came also with a big and heavy question for my development and I got the answer. I know how to care of myself and when to go for the next step. I learned how to be one with my emotions, understand that they are mine and we are a team, not enemies. I learned how to feel my power, create my aura, and create my vital space outside myself."

    "During this month, I enjoyed Tantra yoga a lot. I also enjoyed dancing and putting the heart and soul into it! I received master classes about conceiving myself as a being of light and share knowledge in a community. I learned to love me and be gentle with myself. Casa Kiliku - Durga's Tiger School is a magic place where you feel the love and energy of all beings living here. It is a place where you come to empower and discover yourself."

    "After this training, Tantra yoga in this moment means a very intentional yoga practiced which is centralized on relaxation, meditation, and rejuvenation of the body. It helped me become aware of my witness and observer. Tantra classes reminded me to slow down and enjoy and use all of my senses."

Tantra yoga represents a lifestyle for me; it means to learn to feel every step we make day by day. It means also opening your heart to love and be loved. It is living the present moment!"

  • Review by Erica from USA

    "This school speaks to the core of my being! Much of what I learned at Tiger School will stay with me for life. I learned how to stay inside of my own power, to be strong, and to take care of myself. I learned to be vulnerable and open with others. The course is intensive and at times, exhausting but it broke me open in that way. I do not believe I could have dug as deep without the intensity. If you are looking for a strict, quiet, reserved yogic community, look elsewhere. Durga's Tiger School is meditative and healing, but the energy is very high and wild! This is why I love Dani, Iris, and David. The way they have developed their program is honest and allows you to exist inside of the real world instead of floating inside of a yoga bubble reality where everything is perfect and happy. They encourage you to reach inside and understand yourself, including the darkness that you may encounter. To ignore this would create an unbalanced practice. I have begun to share the Tantric series and philosophy with my friends, family, and people in my hometown and have received an immensely positive response. I am excited to continue my relationship with Durga's Tiger School and see where my new path leads me! Aho!"

  • Review by Oleg from Estonia

    "I have become more flexible. I now feel clearly how energy flows on me and I have power to direct it. I sense even more how our outside world is a reflection of our inside world. I have deepened my understanding of life and death, being able to feel my sexual energy flowing and rising from my roots. Also I have experienced a great balance between my feminine and masculine energies. The evening Tantra gave me a better understanding of relationships between man and women and how it is possible to be more free in the relationship and also how to make relationship more special and being it on another level."

    "The most important thing I realized in this month is that I can be with others and not have to give my power away to them. I understand that I have the power to heal myself and can choose to be around loving people. I have had the experience of being able to truly relax my mind and allow my body to communicate what it needs. I have learned how to breathe deeply. The most important aspect of the Tantra courses for me was learning to trust and give to others in a reciprocal manner. The group experience we did last really helped me to access my subconscious."

I have learned to meditate in the posture and really enjoy it."

For me, the most important of the experience has been learning to respect my space, value the silence, and know myself, connecting with myself and feel my feelings waking up, getting rid of emotions inside that do not allow me to wake up!"

You need to make a pause to notice if you have what you truly need or if it is just because it is there. The mind is so strong, what you believe becomes true. That is why it is so important to learn how to control the mind, the body, and the spirit and be aware of your goals starting from their roots."

  • Review by Nuria from Cumbaya, Ecuador

    "Doing a teacher training is a privilege that few can accomplish. It is a small break in your life that allows you to experience a full immersion into a practice that demands surrender, love, and discipline. Although the art of teaching improves with the years and the experience, the teacher training is really a magic door from where you can start your training as a teacher. And even though your goal is not to teach, you can still go deeper into your practice and interchange ideas with people that have the same passion and interests as you. Personally, I have had the chance to practice with extraordinary teachers for many years and starting from my experience in Durga's, I can start to offer the same gift to others. The most important part for me has been to lose my expectation rigidity and connect with a more fluent structure and live a personal process outside of my house (and without my sons). I could experience Tantra (a concept that I was afraid of) and I could be closely and differently connected with teammates and teachers. Release, flow, and recognize these processes as a point from the beginning of the change."

    "The time that I shared in the ashram, I really enjoyed the space of harmony, peace, and goodness of all the people, especially the teachers that lead us during the training. It was an excellent opportunity to know widely and practically different yoga traditions. Even though the physical practices were intense, I could handle them and I also had time to relax. It was really interesting to live an experience where the physical exercise is only a door to enter a wider development of the consciousness where I could meet with myself and progress towards a way of living more harmonious with my surrounding."

  • Review by Jaquelline from Venezuela

    "I could participate in the first 200-hour training of Tantra and shamanism, a perfect combination and not only as a student but also as a teacher, sharing my knowledge and experiences with a lot of humbleness and respect but also acknowledging my path and my efforts. The results of all this experience have been infinitely full of gratitude. Iris Disse is the founder of this school, who I deeply thank for her openness, energy, disposition, and her creative source that is inspiring for many. For me, this has been a laboratory of living experiences that blend the native ancient wisdom of this land with the traditional wisdom of the yoga as the Tantric teachings. This was a real gift for me, it cleared my path; this experience in the ashram for one month really changed my life. I could connect with my source and senses and I could let them be so that they can manifest their divinity, their empowerment. Tantra forms part of me and now that I can understand a little bit more, it integrates the many parts of me that were scattered and separated before. Talking about energy domain this training is really well oriented, it looks for a balance between the feminine and the masculine, of your creative energy Shakti, and our consciousness Shiva, which exists inside of us. And this understanding is eternal, it is always with you only that sometimes it is sleeping. Thanks to this and to many more things, I recommend this training that will be unique for each moment. The group is very important, because you are not working only on an individual level but also on a collective one, as a whole, which is in the end yoga, union. Again, I express my infinite gratitude to Durga's Tiger School, of which I am part and all we pass there we become part of this beautiful Tantric tapestry. Namaste."
