During these six days, you will be guided by a master yoga teacher into the ancient tantric techniques. You will be given full instructions on practices as well as question and answer sessions in the evening (Satsang) to deepen your understanding and knowledge of Tantra yoga.
The day will start with purification of the internal body called Shatkarmas or Kriyas. It will follow a two-hour practice of Asanas (postures) in a dynamic manner to awake your body and keep it fit, and in a static manner to build up physical and mental strength.
You will practice Pranayama (breathing exercises) and the tantric techniques of Kumbhaka, Bandhas, and Kriyas, techniques to withhold and sublime the sexual energy into higher chakras and feel and channel the 'Kundalini Shakti' (the Kundalini Energy). Additionally, in the two-hour evening class, you will be led into the tantric meditation techniques of Yoga Nidra and Tattwa Shuddhi.
Partner and naked yoga will also be practiced during these 6 days.
Between the two yoga sessions, there is ample time to enjoy the amazing rocky beach of Marathopoli and the wonderful local neighbouring, or surrender to a private Shamanic Healing session.
There will be daily organized excursions visiting the magnificent treasures around the area (such as Voidokoilia beach, Polilimnio waterfalls, Lagoon of Gialova, the archaeological site of Nestor's palace, Methoni castle, and the ancient theatre of Messini).
The benefits of this six-day experience is to strengthen and stretch the body, to discover and feel the Shakti (energy) within and to reach a completely relaxed and meditative state of mind in the most amazing places, south Greece has to offer.
Tantra is the combination of two Sanskrit words: TANoti or expansion and TRAyati or liberation, hence Tantra is the method to expand the mind and liberate the dormant potential energy. The aspects of Shakti and Shiva (energy and consciousness) are not abstractions. Shakti represents the supplest manifestation of energy, lined coiled like a serpent at the Muladhara Chakra (the first chakra) and is known as Kundalini, whereas Shiva or consciousness, is located at the Sahasrara Chakra (the seventh chakra), the highest evolutionary centre in man.
