Certification
Students who complete the training are eligible to register with Yoga Alliance as Registered Yoga Teachers (RYT®).

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.

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 Tantra yogic lifestyle, philosophy, and arts with them. 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
Durga’s Tiger Dance is 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.

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. In this ancient shamanic ceremony, you create your intent for your teacher training and reconnect with nature, your spirit, and your centred self.

It helps you to leave a lot of old weight behind you and you open the door with your other yogis to new experiences. The structure is built in an exact alchemical design out of willow or hazel saplings. Before the ceremony, the lodge is covered with blankets and a sacred fire is built to heat the rocks. Once the rocks are glowing red, we enter. Rocks are brought in and placed in a pit.

The door is closed and in the darkness, the Powers are called in as water is poured onto the rocks. Everybody has the opportunity to pray for themselves and others. After this, it is time to ‘give away’ old habits and patterns that hold us back. The ceremony ends with thanking the Powers for their presence and the gifts they have brought us. You are thus purified in all aspects.

The sweat that runs from your body carries out toxins, your prayers cleanse your emotions and mental limitations. Your spirit is expanded through connection with and direct experience of the Powers. Durga's Tiger School for Tantra Yoga Shamanism welcomes new people to our open purification lodges. You will be given clear instructions beforehand with an opportunity to ask your questions.

Clown, dance, and improvisation
Art helps you to 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 will encounter your feelings, creativity, and joy in life in every moment. In doing so, you will question your “apparent normality” with humour and thereby experience the world differently.
