Tara Yoga Centre was initially established in the UK where the courses opened in London in 2000. Later, the courses were opened in Oxford. TaraYoga Centre is part of an International group of Yoga schools (known as the ATMAN Federation) and the same teachings/courses are offered by each member school. As with each of our sister schools, Tara Yoga Centre is a non-profit organization committed to the same goal – to promote classical Yoga and Tantra, and to unite & integrate the spiritual practice with the commitments of modern social life.
Why our approach is so unique
The method revealed by our school has been applied with great results by tens of thousands of people all over the world. The fundamental axis of these teachings is the occult law of Resonance, a Universal principle which has been largely veiled in the Yogic & Tantric traditions. We may even say that this law represents the lost secret of the Yoga practice and through the application of this method opens up a new dimension to the experience. What we discover is that absolutely everything in life is resonance.
Yoga is a system of Knowledge and action. By combining the two you achieve transformation. By attending these courses you will never be asked to do something without knowing what the effects of those techniques will be. With each class you will receive detailed printed material covering all the practical and theoretical elements and are welcome to ask for further clarification at any point. You will be supported at every level of your practice, and shown how to integrate what you have learned into your daily life, leading to improvements in every aspect and ultimately greater happiness.
These courses are more than a drop in class. They represent a continuous system of teachings that can go on for as long as you like having many years of study. We welcome people to drop in and try out for a few times before deciding whether they would like to continue with the course though.
The Integral Yoga Course - Oxford
Every Wednesday and Thursday 6.30-8.30pm
Nowadays, Yoga is more famous than genuinely understood. Many people believe it to be simply concerned with the health & flexibility of the physical body, yet one of the main ideas in Yoga is that we have within ourselves an immense power and vast possibilities only that we do not know how to use them. Through the ancient science of Yoga we learn ways to expand and develop the consciousness unlocking all of our latent abilities to the greatest extent. Through Yoga we gain complete awareness of who we truly are and what we can become.
This Yoga course is unique in its new and integral approach to the teachings of the Traditional Yoga system.
The course points out the coexistence and complementary nature of the apparently different yoga philosophies, which are in fact complementing rather than excluding each other.
Throughout the course you will be taught extensively about Hatha Yoga, Tantra Yoga, Kriya Yoga purifications, Kundalini Yoga, Laya Yoga and MahaVidya Yoga, for example.
You will also receive theoretical explanations about the fundamental principles of Yoga including the occult laws of Resonance, Correspondence (holographic principle), sexual continence and biological transmutation.
In each class you can expect to practice at least 1.5 hours of traditional hatha yoga as practiced in the ancient past, followed by a new lesson.
The Intensive Tantra Course - Oxford
Every Monday 6.30-8.30pm
The Tantric path of Love teaches us the art of true living. It reveals to us how awareness of each moment can transform our life into an ecstatic triumph, and our worlds into paradises. When the human is trapped by daily routine it becomes a robot which isn't capable of living life and therefore loses most of it. TANTRA gives us our only chance: TO AWAKEN.
Tantra is the great spiritual science of energy. Being highly distinctive in its approach to spirituality, Tantra teaches us to say YES to life in all its aspects, to embrace the energies of life in order to help expand the consciousness from finite to infinite. Tantra teaches us to live life in every moment with extreme intensity coupled with detachment & full awareness, and how to abandon full of love and understanding in the flow of life. Then, life itself becomes a continuous and joyous lesson, teaching al that we need to know, changing us for the better, realizing our potential, perfecting us. Tantra can be learned by all!
Contrary to widespread belief, Tantra is not exclusively related to sexuality and limited to a set of techniques for enhancing the sexual pleasure. Tantra is much more than eroticism. It does however pay special attention to this subject as it recognizes the fact that the sexual force is the biggest reservoir of energy we have easily at our disposal and it teaches us how to use it wisely.
Tantra teaches us to make sexuality sacred for in its vision there is an unbreakable and intimate link between sexuality & spirituality. Moreover, evolution through love is the fastest way.
On the course you will learn extensively about the sexual energy and how to experience this in a new and more fulfilling way including essential aspects related to continence, transmutation & sublimation.
The Intensive Tantra course is perfectly suitable for singles and couples. Nothing sexual takes place whatsoever. The course is a systematic and in depth course revealing step by step the mysteries of Tantra. The techniques and theory given within the course are highly efficient, being ancient secret Tantric teachings adapted to the modern time, explained in a rational and down to earth manner, and supported by contemporary science.
The first year of the course introduces the mysteries of the Tantric path and is structured as an experiential journey through the chakras whereby you will learn sequentially about the whole spectrum of energies and potentials of your being (not only about the sexual energy), receiving techniques for purifying, energizing and harmonizing the chakras (the practice of Hatha Yoga is a very valuable Tantric tool and we practice this together in the class).
In the first year of tantra, you will learn:
Methods and techniques for personal transformation on all levels
The fundamental elements about subtle energies and how to master them
To increase and realise erotic potential
The first steps in developing a strong couple relationship
The secret initiation in the use of mantra
How to integrate spiritual principles in everyday life
Like the intensive yoga course it is a continuous system of teachings that can go on for as long as you like. Every week you will get new impulses – practical and/or theoretical. Men and women will attend the course together, but they will also have the possibility for separate specific talks and workshops in order to fully evolve their unique and complementary qualities.
