After years of yoga practice, travel, research, teaching and experience, we have compiled a simple, efficient and effective system that will help you reconnect with yourself, rediscover your emotions and “Refeel” life. We believe that knowledge is best digested through genuine experience, and for this reason we have designed a unique program of yoga retreats and workshops where we give you the tools to work with the Chakras, allowing you to access your inner power, reach a greater level of consciousness and better understanding of the self. Our teachings are just as much experiential as they are informative.
We draw knowledge from many lineages and systems – including Kundalini Yoga, Tantra, Kashmiri Shaivism, Tibetan Buddhism, Hatha Yoga and various ancient texts; and incorporate them as a united style so that we can provide you with the tools to truly feel what the ancient mystics were aiming to transmit.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Tantra is an ancient spiritual path compiled of many various systems, teachings, practices and rituals. Being so inclusive and encompassing it is difficult to define exactly what Tantra is. However, it becomes more clear when we compare it to ancient India’s alternative spiritual path, Vedanta. The ‘vedantic’ approach to spirituality says that this life, with all of it’s suffering – joys and sorrows, pleasures, pains and attachments – is an illusion. A distraction and a trap keeping us from reaching the divine. Thus the only way to know God is to withdraw oneself from society, close off the senses and turn inside to escape the illusion of impermanence and find the Absolue. By contrast the system of Tantra teaches that EVERYTHING is Divine. This world, this life, with all of its elements – experiences, sensations, emotions, pain and pleasure – is all part and parcel of the divine. And therefore, with the right guidance and awareness, these various aspects of manifestation can be used as a tool to experience the Absolute.
Simply put Chakras are vortices of energy wherever there is an intersection of energy channels. However when we speak of the Chakras we are generally referring to 7 primary energy centers which play a significant role in physical functioning, mental development and spiritual evolution. These 7 centers form what we refer to as the Chakra System and provides us a language which we can use to relate to and understand experiences, emotions, feelings, desires, insights and so much more about this life.
We truly believe that we are all spiritual beings at different points on our spiritual journey. And of all the spiritual paths we have come across we find Tantra to be the most suited to our experience of life. It’s inclusive, it’s fun, it’s serious, it’s structured with strict rules and guidelines and at the same time breaks many rules of the social ‘norm’. It’s precise, definitive and accurate and at the same time completely crazy and magical. Just the way we like it! And as we journey down this path of Tantra we constantly use the Chakra system as a reference guide. We can think of Tantra as the path and the Chakra System as the map – a complex multidimensional map of energies, the physical body, the psyche, qualities of the universe and overall consciousness. In this way we know where we want to go and we have landmarks along the way to guide us.
