Program

This teacher training group consists of about 30 students facilitated by an engaging, international teaching team.

Living at the retreat enables students to focus intensively on their training, fully immersing themselves in a process of learning and self-discovery. Students discover the joy of deeply engaging in yogic practice and lifestyle without the usual responsibilities and away from the business of daily life.

A close and energetic group environment is created to allow students to share their experiences and learning processes, collectively deepening their understanding of the yoga practice.

65% of the course content is focused on tantra yoga, pranayama, and chakra work. Other practices include Heyoca, Tantra Dance, Expressive Arts of the Being, Shamanistic practices, tantric and shamanistic rituals, Durga’s Tiger Dance, and applied Tantra philosophy.

The teacher training is held in English and German.

Kaula Tantra yoga
Kaula Tantra Yoga is rooted in Uttara Shaivism, or Kashmiri Shaivism, one of six Śiva traditions. Students approach the asanas from a place of relaxation, care, and love for themselves.

This yoga series is practised in a slow and flowing manner to build patience and awareness. Each asana is held gently for a period of time to allow students to relax into the posture. This way, each individual finds their own unique way of expressing the asanas without the pressure of competing or ‘performing perfectly.’

Tantra yoga facilitators approach students as whole human beings and discourage ‘isolating’ or forcing muscles. Their priority is to hold a space of acceptance and love, with only minimal guidance where necessary.

Over time, students learn to meditate in the postures to connect with the Divine. This yoga specifically cultures the diaphragms and balances every area of life, including sexuality.

Please note that classes do not involve nudity or sexual contact. In advanced stages, deeper Pranayama practice, Bandhas, and Mantra practices are incorporated into the culture of Kundalini Energy. The advanced levels are taught at Shri Kali Ashram in Southern India.

During their time at Durga’s Tiger School ®, students will explore the Tantra yogic lifestyle, philosophy, and arts.

Together you will discover the ways in which to implement the yoga experience into everyday 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.

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 creativity and relaxation in body movement. The training also involves voice work through the technique “liberation of the voice”, where you find your own lost voices in your body – instrument.

Applied Tantric wisdom
During theory and practical learning classes, students learn about tantra yoga philosophy and its application in everyday life. Students also learn the ayurvedic walking massage.

Mantra singing
You sing mantras and sacred songs from all over the world and get to know the joy of singing together anew. With the songs, you build a healing space among participants. Here the whole person belongs Body, emotions, mind, and soul. You learn songs without notes, which you can quickly sing “by heart”. As you deepen into them, connection and stillness emerge through sounding and listening.

Psychology of the Chakras
Chakras represent developmental issues that people have to face step by step, e.g. anchoring in the family, detachment, growing in the field of tension with the opposite, and finding your very own path. You learn to recognize archetypal patterns in the chakras and explore them through your own biographical history.

Shamanism
As the school is based in Ecuador and Iris had been working with shamans of different tribes for 20 years, students also have the opportunity to learn about shamanism, 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.

Clown, dance, and improvisation
Art helps you expand your possibilities of expression and with that to change your experience in the world. The clown approaches everything with surprise, rediscovering the well-known miracle. Authentically in touch with what is, he reveals his own emotions without shame. On the path of the clown, you encounter your feelings, creativity, and joy in life in every moment. In doing so, you question your “apparent normality” with humour and thereby experience the world differently.
