Yoga Immersion in Switzerland

Expert tip: This is one of the most popular yoga retreats offered in Switzerland.

Immerse yourself into the magical world of Durga's Tiger School!

This is an invitation! Take a break from everyday life for an extended weekend. They are all about the experience. In this immersion, a deep connection to yourself and your existence awaits you. Durga's Tiger School will guide you on a journey using the tools of Kaula Tantra yoga, breathwork, meditation, singing circles, nature connection, dance, forum, and talking stick – creating a choreography where intensity and expression alternate with silence and stillness, where the doing and the not doing a dance together effortlessly. In everything you do, you work with the three tantric keys: breath, sound, and movement.

Program

What Durga's Tiger School does is simply guide you back to your personal power, your inner wisdom and innocence, that place from where you can take true responsibility for your own life. They are guides on a journey, and you may choose to travel with them for a while. But ultimately, only you know what is right for you, what feels good in your body, what you need. They will support you in your sovereignty.

Kaula Tantra yoga

The immersion is built around the core practice: Kaula Tantra yoga. This is a 3-hour yoga sequence that comes from an ancient lineage and is based on the teachings of Bhagavan Shanmuka Anantha Natha. Different to other styles of yoga, this series is practiced in a slow and flowing manner to build patience and awareness. Each asana is held gently for a period of time to allow you to relax into the posture. This way, you can find your own unique way of expressing the asanas without the pressure of competing or ‘performing perfectly’.

Tantra yoga facilitators approach students as whole human beings and discourage ‘isolating’ or forcing muscles. Their priority is to hold a space of acceptance and love, with only little guidance where necessary.

Program: Breath | Sound | Movement

Other than Kaula Tantra yoga, you will dive deep using the three tantric keys of breath, sound, and movement. You will flow with the weather and the group to define exactly when each part of the immersion experience happens. During the three days, you spend together, you will share experiences with the following practices:

1. Breathwork

Durga’s Tiger School will guide you into an experience of deep connection to your body, using connected circular breath, movement and self-bodywork.

2. Meditation

You practice active meditations, using movement, your voice and/or visualization to dive deep into a meditative state. A great way to start the day or greet the moon.

3. Singing Circle

By sharing songs in a circle, you invite joy, you celebrate life, and you connect to your inner vibration. You will explore songs and mantras from different traditions.

4. Nature Connection

Nature is your ultimate teacher, and it is always around you, in you; it is in connection with nature that you experience the magic of life in a very tangible way.

5. Dance

At Durga’s Tiger School, they love to dance. Be it to warm up before yoga, or to celebrate life together. No worries if you “cannot dance” – this is simply about intuitively moving your body in any way that feels good.

6. Forum and Talking Stick

Durga’s Tiger School will use these communication tools that were suitable to support the group process – allowing you to show yourselves fully, with everything that is alive in the present moment, and to grow together as a group.

A word on Tantra

Durga’s Tiger School is a tantric school. They celebrate sexual energy as a life force and they strive to express themselves and be in the world as who they really are – and they are sexual beings. However, during this immersion weekend, the focus is not on sexuality. Classes do not involve nudity or sexual contact.

Included excursions

Depending on the weather and the group, the Nature Connection activity might include a hike to a spot deep within nature.

Retreat location

This residential immersion experience takes place in a seminar center in Sornetan, in the Jura region of Switzerland. You will live together and share meals, creating a tribal, family spirit. However, there is enough space for you to take a breath on your own in case you desire. The region has stunning nature and feels deeply wild in places: ravines, forests, hills. Experiences will be guided both indoors and outdoors.

The seminar center can be reached with public transport (bus stop: Sornetan); parking spots are available for free.
