Hatha with Tantric Vinyasa

Our style of Yoga is based on a Traditional approach to Hatha Yoga and is essentially a combination of Yang (active) and Yin (passive) styles of Yoga. The practice can begin with devotional Sun Salutations or simple warming exercises and leads into a chakra-inspired standing sequence, which can be practiced by linking the breath with movement. Later in the practice as we move towards the seated asanas we hold some postures for longer and the approach becomes more meditative and internalised. The internalised practice focuses on holding some asanas for at least two minutes to discover and cultivate the energetic qualities of a posture as well as the physical benefits that occur from a longer and more strengthening hold.

We also encourage moments of stillness and contemplation in between the asanas to allow the body and energy to integrate the effects, this can be described as moments of void in which a meditative state can arise  This can also be experienced during the asana when the asana has become comfortable, steady and the mind is in union with the body, therefore we teach modifications for all the postures so that a comfortable seat can be found by everyone. Our style of Yoga can be adapted to all ages, genders and body types because it is a practice that includes and goes beyond the body.

Combining breath with the Vinyasa movements helps to flush the body of any toxins that have been released, and the combination of postures in the sequence of vinyasa returns the body to a more neutral position. In Tantric vinyasa we naturally open the physical body towards greater flexibility, health and well being and also teach you the energetic principles of the subtle anatomy. By harnessing the energies of nature we direct it to activate the chakras so that we can determine our physical, emotional and mental health. By understanding our body from this Tantric perspective we can learn a holistic approach that promotes an overall spiritual well being.

At Satya Loka we inspire you to find your own style of teaching, you expereince up to three teachers on each training so that you can enjoy to learn different approaches and flavours. So whether you.choose to teach more physically orientated yoga or more in the spirit of Tantra Yoga, applying vinyasa movements or more of a meditative yin style, we will help you to discover where your strengths lay s a teacher.

Alignment and Adjustments

The practice of yoga asana brings profound and innumerable benefits to the physical body however the ultimate aim of all the asanas is to help us sit comfortably in meditation.

We will learn how to move and align our own body in a way that is safe and healthy for the joints, soft tissues and bones and will experience how this strengthens and creates more space and openness within the body and energy system. Once we understand this in our own being we are then able to truly support our students’ alignment and yoga practice through clear guidance and adjustments.

Traditional Tantric Practices

This is a unique opportunity to learn and practice an ancient form of Tantra, that is offered on this course to enhance your own spiritual development. This path of Tantra is linked directly to the Guru of Radasi and she serves to pass on these ancient teachings which serve as a tool to create the foundation for a more conscious and harmonious opening of kundalini, then with further practice and sadhana this energy can be guided to the higher centres of our subtle energetic system.

Various techniques include the use of mantra, yantra, ritual and meditation, these practices are used to purify and energise our being, allowing us to really embody our Shakti and therefore to help bring a deeper awareness of our full potential and spiritual existence.

Bhakti Fire Puja

Bhakti Fire Puja is a combination of a Tantric and shamanic fire ceremony. It is a beautiful ceremony of devotion that combines elements of a Tantric Fire Puja with a spontaneous flow of bhajans and prayer.  Traditional Vedic mantras are used that elevate consciousness and bring a deep communion with inner most truth.

Pranayama

Pranayama can be translated as the expansion and increasing of our vital life force. We absorb Prana (life force) most directly through the breath and through our food. In the pranayama exercises of Hatha Yoga we make use of this by controlling the breath – breathing into different areas of the body, using specific rhythms and movements. The rhythmic breathing exercises of the Hatha Yoga tradition are strong practices which bring profound benefits: they purify the nadis (energy channels) of both the physical and subtle anatomy releasing blockages and stress and helping us feel a greater sense of balance and steadiness. Pranayama is an important step on the journey of yoga as it helps expand the individual personal energy into universal energy.

Cleansing Kriyas & Purification

We will teach ancient yogic practices used to promote a healthy body and energetic system such as nauli kriya for intestinal support and neti for clearing the sinus passages. Furthermore we will offer detoxifying practices such as oil pulling, salt rubbing and tongue scraping for healthy gums as well as other tips and techniques.

Hridaya Meditation

During the course we experience Hridaya Meditation, a technique and way of being which focuses continually upon the Spiritual Heart as a way to reveal deep inner peace and the natural joy that emanates from our natural state. The teachings are a beautiful unity of Advaita Vedanta, Sufism, Buddhism and Kashmir Shaivism. Central to the practice is the self-enquiry of asking the question ‘Who am I?’ and the practice of continually bringing the awareness back to the spiritual heart, which depth can be sensed by focusing at the centre of the chest near the physical heart. This brings the heart into our yoga practice and life and we are happy to use this meditation as a foundation for all that we share in this school.

Bhajan

Bhajan is an ancient form of Bhakti Yoga, the Yoga of devotion. When we chant Bhajan we use special mantras. Mantras are words, phrases, and syllables which are ultimately sound vibrations that are repeated until they become integrated into our consciousness. Many people are discovering that this sacred, traditional practice allows them to access a greater opening of the heart, deep inner peace and connection. When we give ourselves permission to sing and dance freely, releasing and expressing through our voices and bodies, the emotions which are tightly locked in our hearts become free.

Sacred Dance

Sacred dance is a natural and unifying expression for most women. From our source of shakti – divine energy – and our innate receptivity as women, we can so easily access and feel the bliss of our feminine nature whilst engaged in movement and dance. We often just need the space and encouragement to connect with our bodies and hearts.

Holding Space

Our this training as you expereince a variety of methods to embody Yoga and Tantra you will feel well versed in many different sessions and classes that you can hold space for your students and participants. Radasi is dedicated to share with you her experience in creating and facilitating sacred space, she is committed to help you to find your gifts and develop the confidence to share them.
