Iris Disse and David Höner created the vision for a school, where people could learn different skills to develop awareness, spirituality, creativity and the power, to integrate their true self into society. We hope, that this helps to create a more peaceful world where people develop their lives in creativity and in harmony with the sacred law. That includes for us the acceptance to be co responsible for what is going on in the world, and that we decide to be part of the solution and not of the problem.
The Durga’s Tiger School forms part of Casa Kiliku, a centre focused on integral development: conscience, arts, and society.
Casa Kiliku is an ecological place created by artists. 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.
For us it is pure luxury to offer a retreat place in a rural environment at the edge of the ecological reserve Ilaló and so close to the centre of Quito, 25 minutes by car.
Each teacher training group consists of a maximum of 16 students facilitated by a competent and engaging, international teaching team.
Living in the ashram enables students to focus intensively on their training, away from every day tasks and distractions, fully immersing themselves in a process of learning and self-discovery. Students discover the joy of deeply engaging in yogic practice and lifestyle without their usual responsibilities and away from busyness of daily life. A close, and energetic group environment is created to enable students to share their experience and learning process and thus collectively deepen their understanding of the yoga practice.
