Summary of the course

In this course, you will also be introduced to the science of Tantra and its unique system of pranayama, bandhas, etc. kriyas, and dhyana (meditation). Developing these subtle practices over time lays the foundation for learning the Tantric Practice of Kundalini. Through these, we will guide you to optimize your energy system or Prana (analogous to Chi), which is the basis of your overall health (physical, mental, emotional, hormonal, sexual, etc).

Then, out of your own genuine experience and guided by our teachings, you’ll learn to authentically share this powerful system with others.

Tantra Yoga taught at Shri Kali Ashram is different from that taught in any other school. Unlike the yoga found in contemporary yoga schools, Tantra Yoga at Shri Kali is not based on mere physicality. They do not see a yogi as a set of muscles and bones which need to be pulled into android-like positions. This does not mean that they ignore the study of anatomy and anatomical precisions in culturing asanas, pranayama, etc. Results are achieved through a timeless and organic system of Tantra where there is no compromise on the quality of the asana or health.

Due to the richness of the tradition, students master their āsanas in a fraction of the time. The courses build a thorough understanding of all aspects of Shaiva-Shakta Tantra and Yoga. These courses lead to a complete personal practice and allow one to share this tradition as a Tantra or Yoga teacher. In reconstructing your asanas, you are reconstructing your breath which in turn reconstructs your emotion and enables you to have a healthy mindset. In yoga we see the philosophy of the body helps the mind achieve its fulfillment and fosters blissfulness and equanimity throughout life.

Daily schedule

Tantra Yoga invites you to reconstruct your body, mind, and emotions. It integrates and constructs you as a wholesome being. Tantra Yoga teaches you to culture authentic independence, to flower your potential and to discover your inner peace and bliss. One, therefore, needs to culture this peace and not live distracted in play. Come and learn authentic intimacy and genuine freedom from Shri Kali Ashram. We invite you to discover your true nature and experience fulfillment.
