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.
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.
During theory and practical learning classes, students experience a deep personal work, exploring themselves thanks to applied tantra philosophy, art and shamanism and the Durga's Tiger Dance.
Tantra yoga methodology. ayurvedic walking massage or reflexology, yoga in pairs, partner yoga are also part of the program
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. There are parallels in the way these two different traditions understand energy, astrology, subtle anatomy and physiology. This work helps Ecuadorian yoga students to integrate more easily with the eastern wisdom.
