Most of the course content is focused on Tantra Yoga practice, philosophy and experience:
A deep and transforming sequence, Chakra work, Pranayama, Bandhas, Kundalini, Meditation, Durgas Tiger Dance, ersonal Expansion and more.
The challenge of the highly effective Kaula Tantra Yoga sequence is not one of physical strain but to allow yourself to surrender into a slow and concious practice that focuses on relaxation and awarness during 2.5 hours.
Coming from a world where the mind is constantly running and action is promoted and desired many of us feel a big resistence to let go of it all and just be. Stillness needs practice. But only from a place of stillness are we able to engage in conscious, precise, directed, honest and playful action. This practice offers a wonderful opportunity to cultivate this inner stillness.
This technique is completed by the practice of bandhas, pranayama, mantra chanting, Samadhi, sitting meditation and kundalini kriyas.
Students explore a tantra yogic lifestyle, philosophy and arts. Together we will discover ways to implement the yoga experience into everyday life. We learn about the energetic exchange between Shiva and Shakti, the two polarities, and how to integrate sexual energy into our yoga exploration.
Through Kundalini Yoga we deeply explore the pranayama techniques used in kundalini, tantra yoga, and the Chakra system. We practice specific kryas to feel chakras and work with their energy.
Tantra yoga methodology, ayurvedic walking massage or reflexology, and partner yoga are also part of the program.
As we are living in Ecuador with a huge indiginous population students also have the opportunity to learn about Andean culture, its shamanic cosmovision, and its similarities with eastern culture.
The different rituals allow you to connect with yourself, nature, other realms and the great spirit. Power plant ceremonies are not part of the program but one such ceremony will be offered for those who are interested.
Heyoca – the shamanic clown
Expressive Arts of the Being
Tantric and Shamanic Rituals
Durga’s Tiger Dance
Applied Tantra Philosophy
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.
Shamanic clown is an energetic training that combines improvisation, clowning, dancing, musical/rhythm work, meditation and practical shamanism, among other things.
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.
Living in the ashram enables students to focus intensively on their training, away from everyday 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 the 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.
