Esoteric Tantra Yoga
Live Consciously & Learn From Everything
Tantra is a spiritual path which suggests to live consciously and learn from everything life has to offer.
It is known as as a path of living detached yet fully engaged with the world, and is suited for those who aim to use every life situation as an opportunity for growth.
Unlike other spiritual paths which deny or renounce worldly desires & sexuality, Tantra suggests that all of life’s experiences should be lived fully, consciously, and courageously.
Through the power of consciousness, every situation and challenge becomes an opportunity for transformation. And you are capable to transform any part of life that you choose.
In the Esoteric Tantra Yoga course, we approach Tantra as both a genuine spiritual path and one of the most efficient systems for transformation & personal development.
Explore Tantric Eroticism & Conscious Couple Relationships
There are many misconceptions about “Tantric Sex” today. This course will clarify the difference between sex and pure eroticism, and how genuine Tantrics approach relationships & lovemaking.
Tantra teaches the keys to long-lasting love & attraction in couple relationships. In Tantra, relationships & lovemaking are some of the most powerful tools for growth, transformation, and endless happiness – when taken consciously!
You will also learn practical methods to use the creative sexual potential for higher purposes – to improve focus & performance at work, to increase love & happiness in everyday life, and even to reach the highest spiritual realizations.

Tantra does not deny or ignore any aspect of life – it aims to become fully conscious of everything, and to transform them using the power of consciousness.

These are explored in a way that is accessible for everyone. Even total beginners can understand the principles presented in this course.

In the first year, classes are 2.5 hours consisting of 90 minutes of practice, and 60 minutes of theory.
There are 46-48 classes in a year – 1 per week. Classes pause in August and resume in September each year.
New students must start in Year 1. Skipping years is not allowed, because the later years build upon the foundations set in earlier years.
Each class begins and ends with a meditation with music to enter into resonance with the theme of the class.
The main practice session is approx. 90 minutes and consists of 3 phases:
1. Initial awareness & warming-up exercises
The practice begins with an initial phase of awareness and warming up – to stretch the muscles, increase flexibility, and gently prepare the body to perform the various postures of ASANAS successfully.
2. The main techniques
Practice can include asanas, pranayama, meditation, and other techniques taught in the course.
3. The complete yogic relaxation
The complete yogic relaxation is an active, conscious relaxation of the entire being. It crystallizes the results of the practice, creating long-lasting effects we can perceive even in daily life.
Theory (approx. 60 minutes) will be presented on various subjects such as:
- The game of polarity (between masculine & feminine aspects) & mechanisms of attraction
- Subtle force centers (chakras) and energetic pathways of the human body (nadis/meridians) which affect human psychology & behavior
- Tantric tools & techniques – such as asanas, pranayama, and meditation, and visualization – and their effects on your inner states & daily life
Each class also includes:
Weekly Course Materials
The course materials include descriptions of the techniques you will learn, and the effects of these techniques on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level.
Due to the depth of the courses, the course materials often contain more information than is possible to discuss in the class - so we highly recommend you study and keep them!
You will be guided by experienced teachers who check and correct your postures & technique in the practice.
Each class also includes time for questions & answers and group discussions. And you can also schedule 1-on-1 meetings with your teacher(s) for more personal advice on specific issues or life situations!
Community Membership & Student Discounts
You’ll be considered an active student and receive discounts on all upcoming workshops, events, and retreats.
You’ll also be invited to student-only workshops & community events (like our Special Summer Program and Christmas Party)!
1-on-1 Meetings With Your Teacher(s)
You can ask them anything – about the class, how to use the techniques & methods in your daily life, or even advice for specific life situations.
As an Unlimited Pass member, you can ask any one of them for a 1-on-1 meeting – they’ll be happy to speak with you!

Meet the Teachers
Marilena has been practicing Tantra-Yoga for 14 years and teaching the Intensive Tantra course for 7 years. She first felt called to search for more depth and meaning in her late teens after reading about mysterious subtle realities that left a very tangible sense of magic and truth in her heart.
In 2007 she discovered a yoga class that felt complete and holistic in its teachings. It turned out to be much more than expected, and would be the start of a long-term journey and exploration into herself and life itself.
The Tantric teachings and practices were, and continue to be, pillars around which her life experiences become coherent, meaningful and useful. It was a natural step to begin to share these precious gems with others, and her wish to help others by sharing this knowledge is what inspires each step forward on this path.
Sahajananda has been researching in the field of esoteric knowledge and the ancient spiritual traditions of the planet since the age of 21. He has combined his informative research work with an in-depth practice of yogic and tantric methodologies and powerful tantric forms of meditation.
As a certified AIFYM teacher he teaches courses and workshops in Tantra, Yoga and Meditation at NATHA Yogacenter in Copenhagen and Stockholm, as well as at various festivals around Europe. He has a Master’s degree in Comparative Literature & Art Studies at Copenhagen University and a minor degree in Indology.
Sahajananda will be teaching Year 1 Tantra in Copenhagen together with Marilena on Tuesdays 17.00 – 19.30.
With a huge love for India and oriental spirituality since childhood, Angela studied Indology (Sanskrit and ancient classical India) as well as South Asian studies (Hindi and modern India) in university.
She also went on to study foot reflexology and Ayurvedic massage therapy. But her love for Tantra prevailed and eventually led her to learn tantra massage and, soon after, founded the Tantra Temple in 2006.
She is also passionate about theatre, and played in a performance that won the National Danish award for being the best performance of the year in 2018.
Her love and experience with theatre can be felt in the playfulness and creativity she manifests when she teaches classes and creates and conducts workshops.
Angela will be teaching Year 1 Tantra in Copenhagen together with Valentino on Wednesdays 17.00 – 19.30.
Valentino had his first out of body experience when he was 10 – this would lead him on the path to the study of the arcane. A vivid interest in the Occult aspects of life took him down the road of Esoteric astrology, numerology and the magic of the tarot.
Eventually by “chance” he stumbled upon the Tantra course in 2003 and since then he never looked back.
He has a Master’s degree in business and finance and is a certified Gestalt therapist. If you don’t find him in deep meditation, he can be found in the kitchen, preparing a new delicious meal for one of the many events and retreats at NATHA.
Iris has been practicing Tantra Yoga for the last 5 years and is currently in the Atman Federation’s Tantra Teacher Training Course and the Tantra for Women Teacher Training.

Born and raised in China, a citizen of Iceland, now living in Copenhagen, Ágúst is the kind of person who believes that life is a promise of fulfilment to such a degree that the utmost of our imagination pales in comparison and that in order to realize the promise it takes constant searching, willing and striving. Tantra, the science of life, is the guidebook to the search.
Ágúst has a Bachelor’s degree in business from East China Normal University and a Master’s degree in finance and economics from the University of Iceland.

Ananda sees NATHA as a lighthouse for souls who aspire to understand themselves on a deeper level and to receive the perfect tools to operate optimally as human beings. Her biggest happiness is helping others to experience the same reality that she achieved through perseverant practice.
Ananda is known for her spontaneity and creativity in her tantric work which helps people to discover, often with great amazement, new and unexpected solutions to their problems. She is always a bubbling source of joy and spontaneity which stimulates people around her.
