Sakti Sadhana 2023

200-Hour Tantric Yoga Teacher Training

Lead Teachers : Natalie Backman + Chrissie Chung

Assistant Teachers : Léa-Claude Blache-Pichette + India Amara

Immerse yourself in the world of Traditional Tantric Yoga and follow the path of the Masters of the Himalayan Tradition. Set out on the journey which will eventually yield life's greatest rewards : freedom, fulfillment, and remembrance of who you truly are.

Intention of this Training

Our intention is to share the teachings and practices of the Sakta Tradition of Tantric Yoga in a way which touches your heart and transforms your life.

Sakti Sadhana is a deep exploration of yourSelf through the lens of the ancient wisdom bodies of Yoga, Tantra and Sankhya. This year long 200-hour immersion and training will introduce you to the vast, beautiful world view of Tantra and grant you a transformative experience through the teachings and techniques of classical yoga.

Rooted in the Sakta Tradition, as passed down by the Himalayan Masters, Sakti Sadhana draws from Classical Yoga, Tantra and Sankhya Philosophy to create a holistic approach to practice and life. It is designed as both a means for developing your personal experience of yoga as well as a training to foster ethical, empowered, impactful yoga teachers.

What Makes Sakti Sadhana Unique?

Every module of Sakti Sadhana is mindfully crafted for an immersive experience combined with practical, effective teaching methodology. The modules are woven together in a wise progression to deliver knowledge you can embody and a heart felt appreciation of the teachings, the techniques, and the tradition.
