200 hour yoga teacher training: Main practices

With the rising popularity of Yoga in the recent past many different styles and teachings have established themselves. So what does the Kaula Tantra Yoga practice offer you?

The sequence taught at our school comes straight from an ancient lineage and is based on the teachings of Bhagavan Shanmuka Anantha Natha. We work with asanas, bandhas, pranayama, mudras and mantras. Different to other practices this series is practiced in a slow and flowing manner to build patience and awareness. Each asana is held gently for a period of time to allow students to relax into the posture. This way, each individual finds their own unique way of expressing the asanas without pressure of competing or ‘performing perfectly’.

Tantra Yoga facilitators approach students as whole human beings and discourage ‘isolating’ or forcing muscles. Their priority is to hold a space of acceptance and love, with only little guidance where necessary.

Over time students learn to meditate in the postures to connect with the Divine. This yoga specifically cultures the diaphragms and thus balances every area of life, including sexuality.

Please note that classes do not involve nudity or sexual contact. In the advanced stages, deeper Pranayama practice, Bandhas, and Mantra practices are incorporated to culture Kundalini Energy.

I offer transformational experiences and embodiment pratices ( Shakti Dance, Flow ) with awareness on movement, sound and breath. I welcome people in a space of authenticity, presence and softness. I also share Cacao Ceremonies, Womb Wisdom and Rose Lineage initiation.
“My dream is to co create a place where women and men feel free and safe just to be.
A place in nature, where we are consciously living in harmony, understanding that we are not separated either from nature, either from each others.
A place where we feel free to express, open to be raw and vulnerable.
Also a place where is also welcome to be strong and in our power.
Rather than escaping the actual world, co creating a new one. A new reality on this earth. “

Shona Lisa Pratt

I facilitate conscious dances, meditation, tantric yoga as well as creative expression workshops and conscious dining experiences. These practices are not only my personal medicine, they bring me closer to the life-artist within myself. And sharing this perspective with others is my passion in life. 

My professional foundation was set during a 10 year career in the creative side of the fashion industry. I specialised in developing sprouts of inspiration into physical manifestations during my job as global production and collection manager for multinational fashion brands. The love for nurturing ideas into reality has its roots here and still fuels me with passion and life force. 

Together with my partner I am bringing a ‘playground of presence’ to life, a retreat centre called ‘The Lost Valley’ in Portugal. Where the realms of movement, meditation and creative expression come together in celebration of life, love and nature.
