Experience the secrets of yoga tantra to stay vibrant and healthy 

Coming to Casa Kilíku is like realizing the heart of the matter. This place brought me to all my senses and blew open my mind in a subtle but deep way. Any insight that can come to a person about oneself is revealed at the right time, when the soul is ripe and intuition, knowledge and love are in harmony.

Yoga Retreats: testimonies

I have searched far and wide for a yoga community that surpassed the commercialized fitness regime many yoga studios have become to normalize worldwide. I was happy to find that Durga’s Tiger School ® for Tantra Yoga was well organized and promoted, health, fitness, and creativity for individual growth. The program was beautifully put together, incorporating detox, Kundalini yoga, meditation, and art workshops for students to connect with their inner most selves both inside and out. The teachers took very special care of each student and fostered a real sense of community and love. I highly recommend Durga’s Tiger School ® for students who are looking to dive deep into meditation and connect with their mind, body and spirit. Without a doubt, this program will leave you feeling born anew.

I had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful school in a fabulous location overlooking Quito for four days, Feb 25-28,2016. While there I met a great crew of people who were studying for their teaching credentials. Although I am much older than most of them they welcomed me with open hearts and friendship. I was so happy about this because sometimes when you travel alone to a new place it can be a bit difficult meeting new people. The staff here are lovely people, so warm, happy and willing to help out with any requests. I enjoyed morning yoga activities and there were many things to do which of course you have the option to participate or not. The daily meals were delicious. I’m not a vegetarian but could easily become one after enjoying the food served here at mealtimes. My accommodation was very comfortable and I slept well and peacefully every night. I would highly recommend this yoga ashram to anyone who is looking for a quiet retreat from the stresses of everyday life or to people who wish to further their yoga experiences and learning. I cannot stress enough what an awesome experience this was for me.

I stayed 2 weeks in Durgas Tiger School ® for the Yoga Retreat program.
I had the opportunity to practice different meditation techniques which helped me to discover my creativity.
The ambience in Casa Kiliku is relaxed, very kind and the team made me feel an appreciated guest. The house and the garden are very beautiful, the climate very nice and the place where the house is, very quite.
I enjoyed moments alone and with other people: reading a book while sunbathing, drowing in the terrace, meeting other students and having interesting conversations with them and of course in classes which were always different and plenty of energy.
Thanks for this experience, I will never forget Casa Kiliku!
Nora – Switzerland

I enjoyed everything during the experience in Durga’s. and I was glad to have the option to decide if I wanted to join the group for activities or not. I feel gratefull to people who work in Casa Kiliku and took care of me with love.
One of the best moments was the shiatsu treatment I received.
As I am not so young, I was pleased to share with youg people working so seriously with themselves, I felt their energy and life force and I was inspired!
My room, the food and all services were perfect for me.

I was very pleased with my 7 day retreat. So much more than I had hoped for. The food was excellent, and the classes were fun and informative. Made new friends and feel refreshed. I highly recommend it!

Testimonial for shamanic couples counselling
Harry and I agreed to attend one of David and Iris’s couple’s counselling sessions, neither of us having had couple’s counselling in the past.
We were intrigued to have an independent ‘eagle’s eye’ view of our relationship and take away with us a better understanding of ourselves as individuals and as a couple and some tips on enhanced communication and interactions with each other.
Iris and David run the session together which seemed really unique and inspiring to us. We were keen to get another man’s and woman’s view independent of our own. This helped to understand what things might be common to us and what is also common across many couples.
Iris and David are extremely intuitive and were able to understand our dynamic and challenges very quickly. They have an amazing mix of listening, engaging, understanding, deciphering and suggesting.
Whilst we have not attended other couple’s counselling before, we could see both their style and technique is very unique. They use symbols to help both individuals to represent how they feel which helps them to access their subconscious (i.e. how they really feel, rather than superficial ‘should feel’ commentary).
We came away from the session with a completely new perspective on ourselves and also us as a couple. We saw things in our lives that were important to us that we hadn’t seen before. We could also see what was important to the other as both an individual and in the relationship. We both came away with new techniques on how to communicate and handle some of our challenges, including one that stands out – that it’s okay for us to have a difference of opinion or a difference of perspective and to learn ways of accepting that rather than falling down the path of discussion combat.
An invaluable session both from a personal and couple’s perspective. Thank you so much David and Iris – you are both so giving, inspiring and adorable.
