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, as taught by Yogi Bajhan, students learn another, different, approach to energy work in yoga. Students explore kryias, pranayama and chakra theory
Durga's Tiger Dance, a form of movement developed by Iris Disse based on yoga energy work and different dance stiles, is another form through which students deepen creativity and relaxation in body movement. The training also involves voice work through mantra chanting.
Students are given time for self-study, reflection and practicing teaching tantra yoga classes between themselves. During the course of the month students will also complete a written project.
As we are living in Ecuador with a huge American Indian population, students also have the opportunity to learn about Andean culture, its Cosmo-vision and its similarities with eastern culture. During the course, shamanistic energy concepts are explored together with the Tibetan tantric tradition.
Shamanic clown is an energetic training that combines improvisation, clowning, dancing, musical/rhythm work, meditation and practical shamanism among other things.
The work is a fusion of tools and experiences that you can use for art & life, to get more in contact with your inner child and intuition, develop the right side of your brain and your lateral thinking, release patterns and blockings, to open your ears and eyes to the present moment and the others, to work in group in more effective and loving ways, to increase your creativity and artistic skills by looking at things in a completely new perspective.
Karma yoga is part of the learning process in community life.
