Course Description

About this Course

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.

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.

What's in this course?

    • The course features a synergistic blend of theory and practice, supporting materials, learning opportunities, automated quizzes and various assignments. Lectures progress systematically, focusing on translating the key insights of the ancient tradition and translating them into the practical knowledge you'll use to create exceptional classes. A downloadable 130+ manual with cross-referencing to corresponding videos, provides additional study content. Multiple practices that highlight specific approaches to asana, pranayama and meditation techniques have been partitioned throughout the course, allowing you to easily locate a practice and repeat it again and again. In addition, there is a guided yoga nidra practice. Each of these deepens your understanding of the breadth of possible outcomes and process for designing intentional practices.

      A special feature on the online platform allows you to enter and save your personal notes as you view the content. Automated quizzes have been placed strategically throughout the course, allowing you to assess your comprehension of the main study points. A final assignment encapsulates the entirety of the course. A recommended reading assignment, Tantra Unveiled by Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, helps you to further your mastery of the program's concepts.
