KAULA TANTRA YOGA works with deep relaxation. Students learn the feeling of flowing into the asanas without struggle, developing a deep form of Yoga Meditation. This technique is completed by the practice of pranayama, mantra chanting, meditation and chakras work.
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.
We will learn the Yogi Massage or ayurvedic foot massage which will help us to prepare and expand our body for the practice. Through this quick but so effective massage we will also get in touch with a little part of the Ayurvedic medicine which is the base of this.
Students are given time for self-study, reflection, and practice teaching tantra yoga classes with each other. During the course of the month students also complete a written project.
Students explore tantra yogic lifestyle, philosophy and arts. Together we will discover ways in which to implement the yoga experience into everyday life.
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.
MEDITATION 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
MANTRAS AND SIGNING: 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. We also use some “dances of the universal peace” to connect body with our singing.
During theory and practical learning courses students experience a deep personal work, exploring themselves with applied tantra philosophy, art, shamanism.
Durga’s Tiger Dance, a form of movement developed by Iris Disse based on yoga energy work and different dance styles, is another form through which students deepen their creativity and relaxation in body movement. The training also involves voice work.
In the Applied Tantric Wisdom classes are an opportunity of self discovery. As the course is based on the experience, we will create active and participative classes where we will work on some of the main aspects of Tantra
As the school is based in Ecuador and Iris had been working with shamans of different tribes for 20 years, students also have the opportunity to learn about Shamanism, its Cosmo-vision and its similarities with eastern culture.
During the course, shamanistic energy concepts are explored together with the Tibetan tantric tradition. There are parallels in the way these two different traditions understand energy, astrology, subtle anatomy and physiology.
Wind , an anthropologist, will share a view classes of shamanism. He teaches techniques he learned as apprentice of Don Avelino and other shamanic teachers on his way between the cultures. So among other things you will learn to find your animal spirit, to create your power shield and to connect with nature in a different way.
It was far more interesting than simply practising yoga alone. I discovered a tremendous amount about myself and feel I have grown as a person hugely. I couldn't be more grateful for his experience!
