This 50hr Advanced Training is devoted to the continuing development for the qualified teacher or dedicated yogini. It is registered with Yoga Alliance as a Continuing Education program and is an exploration into Traditional Tantra & The Mahavidyas.

During the course, we will enter on a sacred pilgrimage into ourselves understanding who we are on every level all the way from the human to the spiritual. The richness and depth of the chosen topics will bring a more feminine approach to learning and embodiment.
By placing our attention on entering the beauty and simplicity of what we already have and what we already are, we let go of our need to push and gain more techniques and instead discover our practice in a profound new way. 

Each day will reveal tantric practices dedicated to the Mahavidyas, the Tantric Wisdom Goddesses through asana, pranayama, meditation, rituals, mantra and yantra. There will also be time for ancient texts, mystical poetry devotional kirtan, rituals and sharing circles.
This is a colourful journey into the beauty of Hindu Tantrism and Kashmir Shaivism where our attention is given fully to the importance of direct experience.

This course offers a deeper insight into:

  • Feminine Sadhana:  Meditation, Pranayama, Asana, Kirtan, Mantra & Yantra. 
  • The Mahavidyas: Tantric Wisdom Goddesses
  • A key Tantric text: Vijnana Bhairava Tantra 
  • Subtle Anatomy: Chakras & Pancha Maya Kosa
  • Meditations from the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra
  • Mystical Poetry, Yoginis & Poetesses
  • Women’s Rituals
  • Self Enquiry & Satsang

From a very young age, Lorraine was fascinated by the beauty of movement and music. Her childhood was spent exploring the body through gymnastics and different styles of dance.
In her early twenties, a strong calling to the path of Yoga became the catalyst for many deeper realisations in her life and she left everything behind to follow this call. 

She has now been a dedicated Yogini and lover of Truth for more than a couple of decades. She specializes in offering an insightful and nourishing feminine way of practising Yoga bringing forth her love of Tantra and Kashmir Shaivism. She has also dedicated many years to the study of Jnana (Non Duality), Bhakti (Devotion) as well as Traditional Hatha Yoga which has led her to discover the depths of the Yogic practice, understanding the beauty of the fluid form while investigating the more subtle layers that exist within us. Ultimately pointing to what lies beyond which is the true meaning of Yoga. Union. Oneness. Love.
