The Yoga of Love
Apr 2017, 10:00 am - 6:30 pm 11 Highwick Avenue, Cape Town, South Africa

-An Urban Tantra Intensive –

Enter the timeless wisdom of Tantra while gently expanding your sense of Personal Identity and your Sensual Perception of Reality.

With an exquisite blend of ancient teachings from the Kaula lineage of Kashmiri Shivaism,Valentina will take you into a journey towards the center of your being: where time expands into Infinite Perfection.


 
Allow for the intimate meeting with your TRUE SELF: Eternal and Infinitely Possible.
From this space personal wisdom will naturally arise, as the whisper of the Beloved.
 
The True Meeting of masculine and feminine forces happens at the level of the Human Heart. This is called Sacred Lovemaking.
When we learn to surrender to every moment with the same totality of lovemaking,
we learn The Sacred Art Of True Loving. And Living.

The Way of the Lover.
 

Tantra is YOU. It’s your unique journey towards yourself.
It’s your ability to Embody Bliss, recognize your own Perfection,
and find Freedom.

TANTRA is the MEETING with EVERY MOMENT as YOUR INNERMOST LOVER.
The Way of the Lover.


THE PRACTICES

 

-TRADITIONAL TANTRA YOGA –
Rooted in the ancient wisdom of the Vedas and the healing science of Ayurveda,
this āsana practice will be the container for all the other practices.

Focused on intrinsic relaxation of the physical body and the conscious mind,
this sequence will meditate you into the Deepest Essence of your Being, 
where True Self can be revealed.
From this space of infinite stillness authentic expression can be found. 

(This practice is accessible to all ages and levels of fitness)

-TANDAVA- 
a Traditional Tantric Practice from the Kaula Tradition of Kashmir
this is a very slow, Mystical Dance that leads to the perception of the Cosmic Body and Attunement to the Infinite.

-THE YOGA OF TOUCH-
the Sacred Art of Kashmiri Massage
The art of deep listening to the movements that happen in the Sacred Meeting with the other,
the greatest playground for true meditation.
This is an exploration of the refined, subtle movements of Sexual Energy –
a Sensual Meditation that will naturally flow out of the āsanas of stillness
and will reveal new pathways for sexual energy to express beyond the gross body.

From this place we can start nurturing a Sensual Relationship with All that surrounds us, and expand our perception of Reality.

***The Yoga of Touch  will involve touch work and therefore some level of nudity.
Your limits and your availability will be highly respected.
 Your spontaneity is invited.***

TESTIMONIALS

“An Inspiring Introduction To Tantra By A Radiant Tantrika” MER MEGGIE

“Dear Valentina , Of the many gifts you shared with me, the most important was your sharing of love,” AA

“…And Valentina told me, love is the wind, and for the first time I understood that it was real!” OJAS MICHELE

“An utterly profound practice, Tantra Yoga takes one to the depths of the body and through that shows how to move in the world . Valentina is a wonderful guide. Very highly recommended.” SY TZU

“I’ve found Valentina’s teaching of Tantra Yoga to be a powerful practice for balancing mind, body and heart. The practice takes you deep into relaxation while also deeply working the body – but somehow that deep, deep letting go is what gives us access to a far greater knowing of our true nature. The letting go is a falling in love with ourselves.” SHAKTI MALAN

“I think I had very little idea of the true impact it was going to have on me. Going into the weekend knowing nothing about Tantra other than what I had read on wikipedia, my mind was truly opened to something whole, beautiful and truly special and I KNOW I have barely even broke the surface of the practice and philosophy. I found the experience deeply resonating with something in me and, I think, I may have just found that missing piece in understanding myself and my place on Planet Earth that weekend.” DAN NEVILLE
