What is the Esoteric Tantra Yoga Course?
The Tantra Course is a systematic and in-depth core transformation course that gradually takes you deeper into the levels of teachings in Tantra. The techniques and theory, which you get during the course is incredibly effective and based on the ancient tantric system adapted to the pathways of modern life. The tantric teachings are explained on a grounded and often playful way, but also integrates interesting knowledge from modern science.
Structure of the course
Tantra itself means “network” and is a vast system of ancient wisdom and understanding of the human life and the human soul. In the course, we have structured this knowledge into levels, semesters and modules, that gradually unfold the whole picture. The fact that Tantra means network shows the ancient understanding that everything is interconnected and no aspect of life can be neglected. Therefore the course will go into all the spheres of human life, including the physical body, health, sexuality, performance, human relations, psychology, philosophy and much more.
The principle behind the design: A spiral of learning
The Tantra Course is set to mimic the naturally development of any organism. Frontier scientists have come to believe, that the universe fundamentally is organized according to incredible precise laws and natural algorithms based on sacred geometry, resonance and the holographic principle. In the same way the Tantra Course is designed as an ascending double helix spiral formation (DNA), where each ascending cycle explore even deeper the domains of life, touched upon on the previous levels. In this way the agile student have the opportunity to gradually assimilate and develop him- or herself in all the spheres of his/her life. On each level of the course there is thus a module especially dedicated to eroticism, love and relationships as well as the other fundamental domains of life.
A new way of living…
Tantra is a way of living that encompasses everything. The way we walk, the way we talk, the way we eat, the way we breathe, the way we sleep, the way we react and the way we love and make love. Everything is connected. And you are connected to everything.
Tantra is a way of cultivating awareness, to enhance your inner power and appetite for life. It is a way to celebrate life, and gradually abandon any kind of ‘celibacy’. It is a way to get inspired, to enrich new perspectives and develop our inner talents and natural gifts beyond any imagination.
Tantra is the way of embracing life in a deep-felt openness and awareness, a teaching of how to stay always ‘here and now’, no matter what is happening and how it is happening. It is an active admiration of life and nature, where no aspect is declined: inner or outer, up or down, joy or sorrow, laughter or cry, distance or intimacy, trust or doubt, shadow or light, energy or consciousness. And yes, we can learn to embrace it all…and to experience it again and again in every moment.
Aurora has practised yoga and tantra for the last 16 years and is a certified yoga and tantra teacher within AIFYM. A deep interest in health, awakening and personal development led her in an early stage of life to various spiritual teachings and further on to a university degree in Science of Public Health. Discovering tantra, she became deeply fascinated by the practical and all-embracing attitude of the tantric teachings, of applying and discovering this wisdom in daily life. Tantra helped her to discover that ecstasy is not reserved for special occasions, but can be unlocked in every aspect of life. Her teaching style is playful, honest&direct, full of wisdom, enthusiasm and deep love for the tantric tradition.

Your commitment and expectations
A gram of practice is worth tons of theory, therefore we will include various exercises, hatha yoga or meditation in each class. You are also highly recommended to set time aside daily for “homework”, to practice the techniques given in the course, which is what will give you results and make a difference in your life. You will also receive written materials that we recommend you to study at home before each new class. These materials often contain more information, than it is possible to discuss in the class. In the course material there will be detailed descriptions of the techniques you will learn and the effects of these techniques on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level.
We meet once a week for about two hours. Each course includes theory and practice where we do the techniques we have learned so far. The techniques we practice in a group does not contain any form of erotic practices, all erotic exercises are homework. The techniques that we receive in the course starts with the classical yoga techniques, which means that you learn at a basic level the Tantric perspective, and from there gradually developed other methods. The course integrates also some playful group exercises that help one to awaken the heart, overcoming internal barriers and transform. The course is based on continuous transformation and is structured like a school divided in levels, semesters and modules. Your commitment is made either by the month, quarter or semester.
