THE YOGA OF LOVE 2018
A Tantric Retreat in Africa
A five day INITIATION INTO THE SPIRITUAL SCIENCE OF TRADITIONAL TANTRA YOGA & SUBTLE SEXUALITY.
Enter the timeless wisdom of Tantra while gently expanding your sense of Personal Identity and your Sensual Perception of Reality.
This Sacred and Untamed land will allow for the intimate meeting with your Sacred and Untamed Self: your TRUE SELF.
Eternal and Infinitely Possible.
From this space personal wisdom will naturally arise.
The True Meeting of masculine and feminine happen at the level of the Human Heart. This is called Sacred Lovemaking.
When we learn to surrender to every moment with the same totality of lovemaking, we learn The Sacred Art Of True Loving. And Living.
With an exquisite blend of ancient teachings, contemporary practices and embodiment of Tantric transmissions,Valentina will take you into a journey towards the center of your being: where time expands into Infinite Perfection.
Tantra is YOU. It’s your unique journey towards yourself.
It’s your ability to Embody Bliss,recognize your own Perfection, and find Freedom.
TRADITIONAL TANTRA YOGA - rooted in the ancient wisdom of the Vedas and the healing science of Ayurveda, this āsanas practice will be the container for all the other practices. Focused on intrinsic relaxation of the physical body and the conscious mind, this sequence will meditate you into the Deepest Essence of your Being , where True Self can be revealed. From this space of infinite stillness authentic expression can be found .
(This practice is accessible to all ages and levels of fitness)
SUBTLE SEXUALITY –An exploration of the refined, subtle movements of Sexual Energy in the body. These Sensual Meditations will naturally flow out of the āsanas of stillness and will reveal new pathways for sexual energy to express beyond the gross body. From this place we can start nurturing a Sensual Relationship with All that surrounds us, and expand our perception of
Sexuality and Reality. (no nudity is required)
BLISSDANCE- is a Spontaneous Harmonious movement of the body when the body is in an Authentic space of Relaxation. Then, like in True Lovemaking, the meeting with the other is nothing else that the meeting with our-own-self. The Sacred Self : an Eternal Still Center in Movement. Bliss.
TANDAVA - a Traditional Tantric Practice from the Kaula Tradition of Kashmir,Tandava is the oldest form of yoga known to us. Often depicted in the traditional iconography of northern India,Kashmir and Tibet, Tandava is a very slow, mystical dance that leads to the perception of the Cosmic Body and Attunement to our Infinite Nature. As a traditional practice of Totality,Tandava can indeed catalyze the experience of Spiritual Awakening.
SELFLOVING - Tantra teaches that there is only You. And your perception of Reality. Nothing else truly Exists. With this understanding Self-Loving become then the greatest act of Worship to the Grace of Existence. Love is nothing else than Life Force expressing herself though you, AS YOU.
Possibly the only real purpose for being alive.
RESTING IN SILENCE - the Infinitely quetitude of the land effortlessly leads toward the infinite silence of the Self. We will spend every meals in ritualistic silence to allow the quiet meetings to happen.

“An Inspiring Introduction To Tantra By A Radiant Tantrika“
" The past 5 days has been a truly wonder-filled & seminal life experience. I am deeply grateful, humbled & infinitely enriched by this you are an Incredible teacher Vale & you are doing such powerful work!"
"THANK YOU!!! from the depth of my being, for hosting and holding such a beautiful space for Love and Liberation to unfold. The practices were profound, and your guidance pitch-perfect. You live and breathe tantric truths and it is contagious! "
" Your presence inspired me to go deeper into me.
It opened up a connection to an energy I have never experienced before."
"I expected my time at THE YOGA OF LOVE to be life changing, imagine my surprise when it wasn' it was LOVE changing!!!
I walked in dead, died again in practice and got reborn as a “Lover of myself”."
“I think I had very little idea of the true impact it was going to have on me. Going into the weekend knowing nothing about Tantra other than what I had read on wikipedia, my mind was truly opened to something whole, beautiful and truly special and I KNOW I have barely even broke the surface of the practice and philosophy. I found the experience deeply resonating with something in me and, I think,
I may have just found that missing piece in understanding myself and
my place on Planet Earth.”
"...And Valentina told me -Love is the wind ...
and for the first time I understood that it was real! "
