Esoteric Tantra yoga

At Ananda we offer a year course of Esoteric Tantra Yoga, an extensive and in-depth course that gradually takes you deeper into the mysteries of Tantra. The techniques and theory which you get during the course are very effective and are based on the ancient secret tantric teachings adapted to modern times. The Tantric teachings are explained in a grounded and often playful way, but also integrate knowledge from modern science.

The structure of the Esoteric Tantra Yoga Course

This course is structured in modules, starting in September and ending in June.

Each module consists of 2 sessions  of about 4h30 in such a way that we can have homework & feedback in order to deepen every level. For each module you will receive printed  course material in Dutch or English.

Each course includes theory explained and structured in a PowerPoint and practice in which we practice the techniques we have learned so far. The group techniques do not contain any form of erotic practices. The techniques given in the course start with the classical yoga techniques, which means that you learn at a basic level the Tantric perspective, and from there we gradually develop other methods. The course integrates also some playful group exercises that help one to awaken the heart, to overcome internal barriers and to transform.
