THE MAIN PRACTICES
Kaula Tantra Yoga
With the rising popularity of Yoga in the recent past many different styles and teachings have established themselves. So what does the Kaula Tantra Yoga practice offer you?
The sequence taught at our school comes straight from an ancient lineage and is based on the teachings of Bhagavan Shanmuka Anantha Natha. We work with asanas, bandhas, pranayama, mudras and mantras. Different to other practices 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 students to relax into the posture. This way, each individual finds their own unique way of expressing the asanas without 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.
Over time students learn to meditate in the postures to connect with the Divine. This yoga specifically cultures the diaphragms and thus balances every area of life, including sexuality.
Please note that classes do not involve nudity or sexual contact. In the advanced stages, deeper Pranayama practice, Bandhas, and Mantra practices are incorporated to culture Kundalini Energy.
Applied Tantric Wisdom
These classes are a powerful opportunity of self discovery. As the course is based on experience we will create active and participative classes where we will work on some of the main aspects of Tantra.
Furthermore, there will be focus on working on specific Chakras.
We come together, to open more and more to life, to embrace it, with its beauty, chaos and the magic of its intensity and intimacy. The connection between yoga practice, sacred sexuality and arts a becomes clear.
How can I integrate the liveliness of new experiences into my everyday life and partnership?…
We will discover the joy and the importance of support and be supported, The challange is to take care of the sacred space dancing between me and my partner, and I experience the joy of giving and receiving.
In these classes we will keep on working on many asanas of the kaula tantra yoga serie, using the approach of tantric wisdom, in which we will focus in presence, senses, connection, body communication and in this way we will create the dance of Shiva and Shakti.
is basic in the Tantra Yoga practice. We will see different approaches to meditation, learning to be present in everything we do and transform movement, breath, creativity in meditation itself….until the moment the “no doing” will become a sacred space where you can enjoy yourself
The body is the door – the body is the steppingstone on the spiritual path of the seeker. Conscious Touch is Part of a process that starts with the body but does not stop there
Durga’s Tiger Dance
Durga’s Tiger Dance is a form of movement developed by Iris Disse based on tantric energy work and techniques of “liberation of the voice”.
As inside so outside, as outside so inside. So many feelings come up, move me. When old patterns become visible and want to dissolve, old fears are slowly dis-empowered, there is a BANG. Don’t judge, there are no negative feelings. Be your inner witness and just watch. And then express it.
I dance with Durga´s Tiger. My demons are moved, emerge, dissolve in the light of breath, voice, movement. My voice makes every cell vibrate.
This work is a fusion of tools and experiences that can be used in art & 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. We sing Mantras to address different spiritual energies, we 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. I am the mosquito. I am the nature that surrounds me.I can dance with my power animal, and talk to a plant.
It is knowledge which has the power to transform – body is spirit, spirit is my body, my body is the earth, the sea, the wind, the fire of the sun arising from the see. What does yoga practice hast to do with Shamanism?
we create a social field that helps us to open to the impulse of life. We share from the heart and explore new possibilities in life. Any topic that emerges like emotions, personal development, love, community living, body symptoms can be shared and explored within the group that works as a spiritual community (Sangha). This process helps to self-knowledge, development and transformation.
“I did already three Yoga Teacher Trainings before, and I have had three own Yoga Schools. In this other trainings I learned a lot of theory – when I came back home I had already forgotten everything. Here in Durga´s Tiger School I feel and experience the knowledge, and that is why I will not forget anything I lived here.”

Venue HighlightsThe yoga retreat will take place in the Alexis Zorbas Center in Arillas, Corfu.
If you want to forget about time and live moment to moment – this is the place to be, to enjoy life on the beach, to go for extensive hikes in nature or to simply hang out doing nothing watching the grass grow. There is ample opportunity to slow down by yourself or with others and to remember what life is really about.
Taking a good breath – once the door of the airplane opens, you deeply inhale the fresh and aromatic Corfu air – an experience that reminds us of the most nourishing and fundamental things in life.
Our center is located at the far north-west of the green greek island of Corfu, in the middle of the tiny village of Arillas, about 35 km away from Corfu Town and its airport. Our restaurant with its reception area is located right in the middle of Arillas in walking distance of the various guest houses. This is where we welcome you upon arrival. Many of our guests tell us about this incredible feeling of coming home once again.
Time to arrive… the rhythm here is slow. Hardly anyone is in a rush and very easily you will adjust to a comforting and human pace.
Here, in an atmosphere of greek hospitality, you will find non-stop mediterranean sunshine, silent olive groves, beautiful bays, clean beaches, crystal clear water for swimming and lots of space for peaceful relaxation.
