Welcome to Tantra Shakti!
This training explores Hatha as a foundation to lead you into the tradition of Tantra Yoga as the full flowering of yoga. You will experience practice as a means to unlock the power of yoga, enabling you to become more masterful in your understanding of and capacity to share yogic knowledge and techniques, and achieve greater worldly and spiritual success.
Tantra Shakti is based on a 40-hour, 5-day training and is comprised of 98 videos organized into 18 chapters. It counts fully toward the ParaYoga Master Training Program.
As described in the various texts of tantra, Hatha Yoga is comprised of: asana, pranayama, bandha, kriya, mudra, mantra, and meditation, as well as practices pertaining to kundalini awakening along with a seemingly endless array of other techniques and knowledge.
Master teacher and guide, Yogarupa Rod Stryker, leads you on a step-by-step journey of self-empowerment and discovery. Through theory and practice, this training demystifies the tantric approach to yoga, exploring its key touchstones of practice and wisdom that open the doorway to thriving physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
By providing infinite ways to expand the reach and power yoga, tantra is yoga’s most complete and sublime approach. Incorporating the wisdom of ayurveda and the whole of brahma vidya (“supreme science”), tantra provides a direct and accelerated path to achieving life’s ultimate aims.
