Do I need to be very experienced in Yoga and Tantra to join the course?
It is necessary to be healthy, and it is beneficial to be physically fit as there is a daily amount of physical yoga practice. Nevertheless, Tantric Hatha-Kundalini Yoga it is a rather gentle Yoga style in comparison to some of the mainly physical ‘workout’ oriented styles that are taught today.
It’s great but not mandatory if you already have a consistent personal practice. In any case we require you bringing at least a bit of personal Yoga experience, and a very minimum of 12 classes of Hatha, Kundalini, Kriya, or similar Yoga styles.
After your application is accepted you will receive our TTC preparation toolkit, and we require you to complete this preliminary study before the course starts. Besides this no preparation or previous knowledge is required but it is advised to arrive with an open mind and heart. Further it is beneficial (but not mandatory) to read books from our recommended list.
You are welcome to join us to be certified as a teacher and you are equally welcome to attend as a way deepen your own practice.

How long is the training?
The main training runs for 28 days, beginning on Sunday afternoon and ending on Saturday afternoon. We recommend arriving a bit earlier to acclimatize, and staying a few days after for a gentle landing and for enjoying the fruits of the beautiful natural setting around our venues.

What kind of certificate do I receive afterwards?
Our TTC program is Yoga Alliance certified. Upon successful graduation you will receive a RYT-200 Yoga Instructor Certificate which enables you to become a member of the renowned Yoga Alliance and benefit from being internationally recognized as a certified Yoga Instructor (for example for insurance reasons or for participating in further study programs).
Do I have to become a Yoga Teacher later?
It is not necessary to become a Yoga Teacher. Some students enrol for personal development. The tools learned during this program will enable you to deepen your Yoga practice and gain greater fulfillment in life.
Upon successful graduation of this program you will be qualified as a RYT 200 Tantra Yoga Teacher, which gives you the choice at any point to step into the teachers role. For some students it works well to start teaching right away, for others it may be more appealing to first practice and deepen more.
In any case, even after an intense program like ours, your ‘call’ and transmission as a teacher cannot be forced but will be naturally determined by the depth of your own practice and embodied understanding.

What are Tantric Rituals?
We approach ‘rituals’ or ‘holding sacred ritual space’ a bit like cooking receipts. It requires preparation and clear intention, a bit of knowledge and experience, mixing the ingredients well and in a certain order for having a good and safe time, and for receiving a yummy result.
In other words, in a Tantric Ritual we create conscious space, with mutual consent and clear intentions. It has a defined beginning and end, and it is designed to help us deepen our experience in a safe environment with sharpened awareness and presence.
In our TTC you will experience ritual space with various contents, from contemplation and self awareness to exercises of a more active nature.
