WHY TANTRA?

Tantra is the natural evolution of yoga. It is an integral system that consists of 5 Yoga systems, as taught by Lord Shiva to Parvati, the origin of yoga.

Tantra means expansion, tra means freedom. Tantra is the art to be free from all physical, mental and spiritual bondage through the expansion of energy.

Unlike many other systems of yoga, Tantra takes a liberal approach, embracing life in all its facets and using life as our ultimate teacher. Through acceptance of all that is, we find ourselves gradually liberated from limitations and conditioning, which allows us to step fully into our personal power and the joy of being fully alive.

Tantra Yoga emphasizes the development of power latent in the chakras in a systematic manner to heal and balance all aspects of the self — including the physical, emotional, vital, mental and spiritual bodies.  This eventually leads to supreme consciousness, the ultimate aim of human life.

WHAT MAKES OUR TRAINING SPECIAL?

Tantra itself is a special, however misunderstood science. It is an ancient system of activating the dormant potential inside each and every one of us. This training is not just to make you a good yoga teacher, but gives you what you require to blossom fully into who you are meant to become in this lifetime.

What makes our training special is you. Each of you are unique and when we come together for this higher purpose, a positive energy is created that will shape our course in its own beautiful expression. Sheltered in the ashram in the hills of Nepal, you will find yourself in an expansive environment that encourages you to find your own inner yogi or yogini.

Moving beyond the physical aspect of yoga, however important, we place utmost importance on transmitting authentic yoga in all its fullness and glory, so that you may develop your own inner capacity of truly living in yoga. It is upon this foundation of spiritual strength and wisdom that a genuine yoga teacher may emerge. We aim to provide you with the foundational building blocks needed to teach with confidence and ease as soon as you graduate.

OUR LINEAGE

The teachings of our ashram are the combination of Tantra Yoga as taught by Swami Nirajananda, successor of Swami Satyananda of Bihar School of Yoga and Swami Shivalingam, also a student of Swami Satyananda, who taught the ancient hidden secrets of Nepalese Tantra to his disciple Yogi Prakash, or Guruji, as he is known, the founder of Shanti Yoga Ashram.

Nepal is the land of Tantra, where Shiva himself taught this science to his other half, Parvati. It has been preserved in its pure form from Guru to disciple ever since. It is our intention to transmit this wealth of knowledge, through adapted practices and providing a good structural means for conducive learning and integration.

ASHRAM BENEFITS

At the ashram, we teach to promote experiential learning, and while you will receive comprehensive teaching in the theoretical and philosophical aspects of yoga, we feel that it is imperative for you to experience yoga in order to teach and take your own practice to the next level. Yoga is much more than just the practice of Asana; it is a lifestyle. At Shanti Yoga Ashram, we prepare students to live Yoga, not just do Yoga.

Our daily activities provide a balanced mix of all the aspects a great yogi embodies: disciplined daily practice, knowledge, devotion, action or work, healthy food, rest, nature, service and community. As you fully immerse yourself, you will find an openness to the process of deep learning and self evolution. We’re confident that the experience will not only prepare you to teach yoga, but give you all the tools you need to maintain a harmonious balance in your daily life.

COURSE CURRICULUM

TANTRA'S FIVE YOGA SYSTEM

Tantra yoga starts with the gross level, the body, and gradually transitions to the most subtle level, consciousness. This teaching system offers the evolutionary process from Hatha yoga, meditation through the body, to Ashtanga yoga, meditation through the mind, to Mantra yoga, meditation through sound vibrations, to Kundalini yoga, meditation through the chakras, and ultimately to Shiva-Shakti yoga, meditation through the internal masculine and feminine energies.

Hatha Yoga – The Foundation of Tantra. Classical Hatha Yoga is aiming to balance our solar and lunar energies. When the body is balanced, the energy can flow properly, resulting in good health.

Shatkarma – The first step in Hatha Yoga. Shatkarma is the internal yogic cleansing, to prepare our bodies and minds for practice. It is an essential part of Hatha Yoga, so prana can flow through clear channels without toxins.

Asana – Hatha Yoga Asanas, Sun Salutations with deeper esoteric meaning while incorporating chakra awareness. You will learn how to incorporate breathe, awareness and movement along with enjoyment.

Pranayama – Sensitizing, Vitalizing, Balancing and Tranquilizing. You will learn more than techniques but gain the ability to use your breathe to direct your own pranic flow.

Mudra – Create a flow of prana through different gestures, essential element of tantra yoga.

Bhanda – Learn to lock and release different parts of the body to direct the energy as needed.

Astanga Yoga (Raja Yoga) – 8 Limbs. There are practices in each of these limbs that help one evolve to the next.

Yama and Niyama – Development of personal character by imbibing certain lifestyle regulations for upliftment.

Bhakti Yoga and Karma Yoga are included here. Bhakti Yoga (Yoga of Devotion) – Embodying Divine Qualities.

Karma Yoga (Yoga of Selfless Service) – Doing something good for humanity that reaches beyond your own borders.

Asana – Become still and comfortable in your own skin, so that the cosmic life-force may flow through you.

Pranayama – Learn to expand the space between the breaths to come fully into present moment awareness, preliminary stages of meditation.

Dhyana – Meditation will occur naturally with the preparatory practices.

Samadhi – Blissful state of Enlightenment – A glimpse will be possible as the soul begins to shine out and feel real peace.

Mantra Yoga – Once the body and mind are balanced we are ready to invoke the divine energy through sound vibration, the most subtle of all manifestations.

AUM Chanting – There are many ways to chant Om to awaken different energy centers. Om can be chanted to either elevate or ground the energy.

Kirtan – Chanting together to invite Cosmic Energies and express our devotion to the divine.

Mantra Initiation – You will receive a mantra to use for japa and to connect to the yoga lineage. Yantra, Mantra and Tantra – Visualization and Manifestation.

Kundalini Yoga – The yoga of awakening the sleeping potential of the human being, through purifying each chakra, using a variety of tantric methods. This is an integral practice that will evolve throughout the course. We will also spend time to understand and work with each chakra individually. Kriya Yoga – Working inside of the asana to circulate prana from one chakra to the next, a process of purification.

Shiva Shakti Yoga – Requiring the use of all the yoga systems learned previously; it is our goal to make you a master of your own body, mind and energy systems.
