We welcome you in a charming old farm house from the 18th century on one hectare of diverse landscape. Full of fascinating history and nature, we are in between Provence and the Cévennes Mountain range, a unesco preserve heritage. Nestled in natural beauty and elegance, the senses are empowered and liberated. Waves of bird song, earthy colors and fragrances of flowers and foliage in full bloom. This magical place is 8 mins from Barjac, France. Barjac is a Renaissance town. The old city centre retains ancient narrow streets, charming squares and houses of that time. The valley of the river Cèze lies to the south, and the river Ardèche is 20 km to the north.

The space holders for this retreat yoga teacher training, teach in the traditions of Tantra.
tantra: means thread, to expand, continue the lineage; stretch or weave, like a tapestry or patchwork..
The spectrum of flavours that this Tantra offers is limitless. Steeped in sahaja yoga (- sahaja yoga - indicate disciples' belief that union with the divine is the birthright of each individual. Sahaja can also be translated as 'spontaneous') crazy wisdom, vajrayana buddhism, esoteric hinduism, sufism, kashmir shaivism, Bauls of Bengal, Jungian analysis and the 4th way...to name some of the main threads in their tapestry of offerings.
We offer fresh new perspectives to practicing and how to integrate the teachings into everyday life, holding space for the highest potentials of each individual being to emerge naturally in the process of alchemical transformation. This work is like a labyrinth, where there are pathways of both shadow and light, entries and exits and the 'spaces in-between' form and formlessness, in between your thoughts, emotional experiences... Tantra is about transformation of relationship. A deepening of relationship to the manifestations of the Spirit and pure unequivocal enjoyment, delight in being alive with what is...
Open your heart to ancient mythologies, Hatha-Vinyasa and therapeutic yoga asana practices. Mixed with dance, chanting, meditation, pranayama to engage with the subtle energies. Engagement in ritual, sacred art and dharma discussions around the vast lineages and teachings of Tantra.
