Tantra yoga works with deep relaxation. Students learn the feeling of flowing into the asanas without struggle, developing a deep form of a deep Yoga Meditation. This technique is completed by the practice of bandhas, pranayama, the mantra chanting, Samadhi, sitting meditation and kundalini kriyas. During their time at Durga’s Tiger School, students will explore tantra yogic lifestyle, philosophy and arts with us. Together we will discover the ways in which to implement the yoga experience into every day life. Through the Tantra teachings students also learn about the energetic exchange between Shiva and Shakti, the two polarities, and how to integrate sexual energy into their yoga exploration.
Through Kundalini Yoga we deeply explore the pranayama techniques used in kundalini, tantra yoga, and the Chakras system. We practice specific kryas to feel chakras and work with their energy.
We will approach the vision and methodology of the Kaula Tantra yoga practice in the classes of Intuitive anatomy and physiology in which we will develop a connection with our inner body intelligence, learn how to read it better and act according to it’s current needs. It’s about the combined powers of the mind and the physical body and the effect of being totally in harmony with the messages we perceive form our bodies in each moment.
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.
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 through mantra chanting.
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.
As we are living in Ecuador with a huge indigenous population, students also have the opportunity to learn about Andean culture, its cosmovision, and its similarities with eastern culture
Shamanic clown is an energetic training that combines improvisation, clowning, dancing, musical/rhythm work, meditation and practical shamanism, among other things.
