Casa Kiliku is a green space created by artists. The Kiliku is a small hawk that lives on the Ilaló volcano. Is a local symbol of freedom, seeing reality from high above. It means that Casa Kiliku helps yogis to distance themselves from everyday life and fly into the experience of living in a yoga ashram, while enjoying the surrounding green garden with flowers and old trees.

Tantra yoga works with deep relaxation, so you will flow through the asanas without any difficulty. It will become a kind of deep meditation yoga. This technique will be complemented with the practice of bandhas, pranayama, mantra chanting, Samadhi, sitting meditation, and kriyas.
During the retreat, students will explore the Tantric yogic lifestyle, philosophy, and the arts. Through the teachings of Tantra, they will also learn about the energy exchange between Shiva and Shakti, the two polarities, and how to integrate sexual energy in their exploration of yoga.
Through Kundalini, based on the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, a different approach to energy work was integrated. Students will learn kriyas, pranayama, chakras theory, and will have the opportunity to practice teaching Tantra yoga classes. In addition, they will draft a written assignment.

As you will be in Ecuador, in touch with a great indigenous people, you will also work with shamanistic energy concepts, linking it with the Tibetan Tantric tradition.

This work will help Western yoga students to become more integrated with the Eastern view.
The shamanic clown is energy work that combines improvisation, clown, dance, music and rhythm, meditation, and practical shamanism, among other things.

Students will also have the opportunity to participate in temazcal purification, an ancient ceremony in which you will conceive the purpose of the course and reconnect with nature, spirit, and with yourself.
In the expressive arts of being workshops, students will explore themselves in a process of emotional cleansing, through dance, voice work, body language, clown, and theater techniques. In addition, each student will receive a “limpia”, which is a ritual to clean energy with local medicinal plants, carried out by Fanny, a native of the commune and the mountain Ilaló.
Partner yoga is a mild form of practicing Tantra yoga in a deeper way. Working in pairs means to connect with the other person through all the senses and feeling supported in your practice, opening your heart.
