The Academy of Tantric Science was founded to support the systematic study and the dissemination of non-dual techniques of the technology of Tantra via our Tantric Lifestyle & Yoga Teacher Training courses.
Our aim is to contribute a clear voice in the continued conversation that seeks to bridge the gap between spirituality and science. We strive to weave the timeless wisdom of the mystics with our modern understanding of human consciousness - the body, emotions and the mind.. We desire to discuss, debate, challenge and in some cases completely change the context from which we practice and understand yoga technology and the yogic techniques - including yoga postures and movement. The teaching of these techniques must be done with the most complete understanding of this science so that they remain applicable, potent and direct in the realization of the [S]elf as Consciousness - ultimately the purpose for this great technology [Yoga].
There is a severe misrepresentation and misappropriation of [Y]oga saturating the classes of our well-intentioned yoga teachers, yoga studios and yoga businesses. This is, of course, to be expected with the mass commercialization of yoga. Package it up, make it pretty and culturally appropriate it into a fitness program. Yoga teacher training programs have become a dime a dozen, fueled by a culture obsessed with fitness. Yogic techniques, including postures and movement, are generally not being taught with a integrated understanding of the nature of human consciousness - the vital energetic and physical body, the emotions and the mind. This is a great disservice to the science of Yoga and humanity, and we are here to give the support of our voices and do the best we can to represent the technology of Tantra in the safest, most complete and most authentic way we are able to.
Our Tantra/Hatha/Vinyasa training programs have been exclusively developed and are taught by our small faculty of teachers. We utilize the timeless wisdom and transformational techniques of non-dual Tantra - from which Hatha Yoga finds its roots. Hatha Yoga's contemporaries, including the schools of Iyengar Yoga & Ashtanga Vinyasa have had great influence. All of our courses utilize the brilliance of Critical Alignment Yoga and Therapy (CAT) to further enhance the therapeutic value of this technology.
