This intensive Teacher Training will provide you with practical and spiritual tools to experience the depths of unveiled reality in your daily life. Unite your heart and soul in a conscious environment of love and unconditional acceptance towards oneself and others.
The methodology of the transmission and the philosophy of the teachings are simple and straightforward. Ancient and modern perspectives will be transmitted using translations of traditional texts with Sanskrit terminology as well as approachable, contemporary self-exploration modalities. We will practice the meditative and transformational Tantra Yoga asana system daily, preparing you to integrate the teaching methodology. This is the art and science of Tantra: a seamless fabric of practice and information which enables you to celebrate life with skill.
Our training is suitable for anyone who wishes to explore reality through the tradition of Tantra yoga with the vision to understand more about their yoga practice, to become traditional Tantra yoga teachers or deepen their current professional yoga knowledge.
