How the training works

The sessions will be held online over Zoom. This 200-hour online course is designed with the at-home student in mind while maintaining the integrity and sacredness of the in-person training. Pre-recorded classes will be followed up with a live discussion session.

In this way, people joining from different parts of the world can participate in classes at the same time and work all together. Students will have the flexibility to watch the pre-recorded content at their convenience and will have access to all content for up to 30 days after the training ends.

Timing of sessions (GMT-5)

Students can expect to be engaged for 8 hours a day during the week; for up to 4 hours on Saturdays and have Sundays off. Live classes are held from their Ecuador location, which will begin in the morning in North, Central, and South America, and in the afternoons in Europe.

The curriculum is designed to foster interpersonal support and community-building. Upon completion of the course, you will be invited to join their active and much-loved global community of Tiger Riders around the world.

Subjects

Kaula Tantra yoga

The style of yoga Durga's Tiger School for Tantra Yoga Shamanism teaches is Kaula Tantra yoga. This practice comes straight from an ancient lineage that is based on the teachings of Bhagavad Shanmuka Acantha Natha.

What makes Kaula Tantra yoga special?

While most yoga is taught and practiced to prepare the mind and body for meditation, this series was born out of meditation. Thus, it is practiced in a flowing manner to build one’s patience and awareness. The asanas are gently held for a period of time to allow practitioners to relax into the posture.

Over time, one will learn to meditate within the asanas to connect directly with the universe. Each body is different so each student is encouraged to find their own way of expressing asanas. There is no pressure to compete with others or to be in “perfect alignment”.

This form of yoga specifically activates the diaphragm, balancing the body to then balance every other aspect of life, including one’s sexuality. In alignment with the requirements set by Yoga Alliance, you will work with asanas, pranayama, mudras, mantras, and different meditation techniques.

In addition, the curriculum also incorporates a variety of unique experiences and teachings that invite students to grow in all aspects of their lives, not just in yoga. Learn more about the dynamic curriculum below.

Meditation

Meditation is the foundation of Tantra yoga practices. You will explore different approaches to meditation, such as chanting, dancing, breathing, and more. Meditation will help students become more present in everything they do and they will learn to transform movement, breath, and creativity within the meditation itself. This is the art of “not doing” but “being” where one taps into the sacred space within him or herself.

Kundalini yoga

Kundalini yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan, is another form of Tantra yoga that is focused more on the movement of energy through the body. Each practice (called Kriyas) will target specific chakras or parts of the body’s system to help students become more in touch with all of their energetic bodies, not just their physical ones.

Shamanism

As the school was born out of Ecuador, which boasts a thriving indigenous population, Durga's Tiger School for Tantra Yoga Shamanism feels it imperative to share about Andean culture and its cosmovision with the world. This cosmovision aligns with many philosophies and teachings of ancient Eastern cultures.

The parallels include energy work, astrology, subtle anatomy, and physiology. Students will be led through shamanic experiences of re-establishing their connection with nature and the environment around them.

Intuitive anatomy and physiology

The approach to anatomy is unique in that you place special emphasis on intuitive learning over memorization. The anatomy and physiology classes are designed to connect students with their inner body intelligence. Students will be able to listen to their bodies better and act according to its needs at the moment, rather than waiting and acting from just the mind.

Durga’s Tiger Dance

Durga’s Tiger Dance is a unique form of movement developed by Iris Disse. It shares many principles with Ecstatic Dance and Five Rhythms. It is based on yogic energy work, different dance styles, and voice work. The class is designed to help students deepen their awareness, creativity, and relaxation while moving their bodies and expressing themselves through sound.

No prior skills or dance experience is necessary. Much of the class is done with the eyes closed and students are encouraged to dance as if no one is watching.

Applied Tantric wisdom

In this class, Iris shares tantric practices that can be immediately applied to students’ everyday lives. These practices help build intimacy between their relationships, romantic or otherwise. They also invite students to explore their life force energy, much of which is focused on their sexuality.

(Classes will not involve nudity, sexual contact, or anything sexually suggestive). Students also learn the importance of rituals and how to create and hold sacred spaces.

Art and theatre

These classes are designed to help students find a playful way to become conscious of their emotions and invite students to engage with them. They are a bit of a wild card as they are shaped around the specific cohort of students. However, the principles remain the same:

  • Get in touch with one's’ inner child, intuition, and inner artist
  • Utilize and develop right-brained lateral processing
  • Recognize and release patterns and blockages
  • Be present
  • Work in groups
  • Approach everything from a new perspective

These classes are energetic training that combine improvisation, clowning, dancing, musical/rhythm work, meditation, and practical shamanism.

Talking Stick

Talking Stick is a sharing circle that is held every week. Everyone who is part of the course will be in attendance to see, hear, and witness each other. Durga's Tiger School for Tantra Yoga Shamanism has found that this practice creates a social field that supports individuals to share from their hearts and help explore new possibilities in their lives. It is a safe and sacred time and space where all topics are welcome.
