200 hours “Tantra Yoga Art Shamanism” Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) with Yoga Alliance and Yoga Alliance International certification

- Enjoy a great opportunity to get in contact with shamanistic cosmovision and see its similarities with the spiritual Indian culture. * Discover the importance of the ritual.
- A great opportunity to experience community life in a Community /Eco-Village
Living in the Community enables students to focus intensively on their training, away from everyday tasks and distractions, fully immersing themselves in a process of learning and self-discovery. Students discover the joy of deeply engaging in yogic practice and lifestyle without their usual responsibilities and the busyness of daily life. A close, and energetic group environment is created to enable students to share their experience and learning process and thus collectively deepen their understanding of the Kaula Tantra Yoga practice
The main meaning of Kaula is family, group, a unit. Another meaning sometimes given to the term kaula is that of a “group of people” engaged together in the practice of spiritual discipline. Spiritual discipline includes our consciousness and resposibiliy of creating our own life in the way we feel good and with beautifulness and lightness every time is possible.
That’s why we decide to do our Yoga Teacher Training, in a Community again, a reality of people engaged in the creation of a common vision of way of living.
This time, in Spain we will be at the “Molino de Guadalmesi”, close to Tarifa at only 800m from the sea.
You can visit the Molino de Guadalmesi web page here
We will have classes close the river connecting with the 5 elements around us and inside us.
A nice yoga room will be also available for the afternoon or night classes.
As it is not high season, we can also enjoy the quietness of Tarifa beach where we will organize some classes in front of the sea.
We have very good Early booking offers. Please look at the bottom of this page

Kaula Tantra yoga works with deep relaxation. Students learn the feeling of flowing into the asanas without struggle, developing a deep form of Yoga Meditation. This technique is completed by the practice of pranayama, mantra chanting, meditation and chakras work.
Please, read more about Kaula Tantra Yoga here
We will learn the Yogi Massage or ayurvedic foot massage which will help us to prepare and expand our body for the practice. Through this quick but so effective massage we will also get in touch with a little part of the Ayurvedic medicine which is the base of this.
Students are given time for self-study, reflection, and practice teaching tantra yoga classes with each other. During the course of the month students also complete a written project.
Students explore tantra yogic lifestyle, philosophy and arts. Together we will discover ways in which to implement the yoga experience into everyday life.
Through the Tantra teachings students learn about the energetic exchange between Shiva and Shakti, the two polarities, and how to integrate sexual energy into their yoga exploration.
Meditation is basic in the Tantra Yoga practice. We will see different approaches to meditation, learning to be present in everything we do and transform movement, breath, creativity in meditation itself….until the moment the “no doing” will become a sacred space where you can enjoy yourself
Mantras and singing: Singing connects you with your inner self and with the others. We sing Mantras to address different spiritual energies, we sing chants from all over the world to share these energies and to celebrate joy together. We also use some “dances of the universal peace” to connect body with our singing.
During theory and practical learning courses students experience a deep personal work, exploring themselves with applied tantra philosophy, art, shamanism.
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 their creativity and relaxation in body movement. The training also involves voice work.
In the Applied Tantric Wisdom classes are an opportunity of self discovery. As the course is based on the experience, we will create active and participative classes where we will work on some of the main aspects of Tantra
In the ZEGG Forum we create a social field that helps us to open to the impulse of life. We share from the heart and explore new possibilities in life. Any topic that emerges like emotions, personal development, love, community living, body symptoms can be shared and explored within the group that works as a spiritual community (Sangha). This process helps to self-knowledge, development and transformation.
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.
Wind , an anthropologist, will share a view classes of shamanism. He teaches techniques he learned as apprentice of Don Avelino and other shamanic teachers on his way between the cultures. So among other things you will learn to find your animal spirit, to create your power shield and to connect with nature in a different way.

Facilitators of this course
Wind Malin Disse
Wind was born in Germany but from the age of 3 years old he has been living in Ecuador.
Wind´s path as an anthropologist, artist and certified Yoga Alliance and Yoga Alliance International yoga teacher leads him to be seen as a cultural mediator, a bridge between worlds. Due to his deep interest in shamanism, he has contacted many shamans of the Amazon and Andean region of Ecuador.
2009 Wind was invited to learn more about the shamanic tradition of the Cofan- A’i socio-culture and ended up being accepted as apprentice by the shaman Don Avelino Quenama.
Wind´s thesis as Anthropologist, was about the theme: Orality, practices and symbols of the A´i shamanism, including the relation with visionary plants. Don Avelino gave him the authorization to do his own ceremonies with the yage medicine and share his knowledge.
Since then, Wind Malin Disse has attended and guided many shamanic ceremonies in order to keep on learning and help others to enter into a shamanic state of consciousness that allows shamanic healing

Anina is excited to share her classes at Durgas Tiger School after most recently having taught on Sri Lanka, Japan and in Zurich.
