Swami Vivekananda Saraswati

Thailand / Romania

Vivekananda, fondly known as Swami, is the longtime teacher of Somananda and founder of the renowned Agama Yoga School, which is headquartered in Thailand. He is a powerful and dedicated practitioner of Indian and Tibetan Yoga in their most authentic and ancient forms, yet he presents spirituality as a living modern science. He first delved into spiritual studies at the age of 16, and by the time he enrolled in a master’s program in engineering at his university, he had already begun intense yogic and tantric practices. Swami is one of the few Tantra masters today who is also an expert in Kundalini Yoga, Tibetan Yoga, Gnostic Christianity, and the rare, elevated practices of Kashmiri Shaivism. Spiritual teachers often avoid speaking of their spiritual accomplishments, yet it is important to mention that Swami Vivekananda has reached high states of spiritual realization and samadhi. Swami was born in Romania, but has lived in Denmark, India, and Thailand for the past 25 years.

Somananda

Israel / Estonia

Somananda was interested in spirituality and the powers of the human mind from a young age. He pursued his university degree in law, but after completing his studies and entering practice in his home country of Israel, he found that his real passions ultimately lay elsewhere – in spirituality. In 1996, while an attorney by day, Somananda discovered Yoga and began practicing from books on his own. As his love and passion for Yoga and spirituality grew, he left for India and met his teacher, Swami Vivekananda Saraswati. As a result Somananda immediately committed to the intense study and practice of Yoga, Tantra, and meditation and, by 2000, he began teaching. Somananda, who has reached high states of spiritual realization, is the founder and head teacher of Bhairava Yoga, a tantric Yoga school in Estonia, which offers a comprehensive repertoire of valuable spiritual teachings. Over the last decade he has taught in India, Thailand, Israel, Europe, and Estonia, and he now resides in Estonia.

Liisa Maimon

Estonia

In 2009 Liisa participated in the very first Tantra Yoga Workshop given by Somananda in Estonia. Without immediately realizing it, this event was the turning point in a new and exciting chapter of her life – the spiritual path. Feeling a strong connection with the teachings, Liisa continued her Tantra, Yoga, and meditation studies with Somananda and Agama Yoga. She realized that Yoga, especially the way it is taught according to an authentic lineage, is a very powerful and practical science for personal evolution. Liisa completed the intensive Agama Teacher Training Course in 2012 and had been actively teaching Yoga since. After three years of personal study with Somananda she was also given the license to teach Tantra. Liisa, who was born in Estonia, is the cofounder and general manager of Bhairava Yoga and she also heads up the Tantra Festival organizing team

Eugene Hedlund

USA

Eugene, a certified Five Rhythms teacher, is the founder of the SheddingSkins path of personal transformation and Raw Truth Living. He is also cofounder of Tribal and Heart Centered Tantra. Eugene’s passion is for exploring the edge with courageous authenticity and embracing the shadow in order to discover what lies underneath. His work is ultimately to invite each person to fall in love with themselves and feel empowered to step into the fullness of their being without hesitation or apology. Through the dance we discover the subtle wisdom in the language of our body. The shaman’s way connects us deeply to our elemental being, the Earth itself, and the great teachers of death, change, and alteration.

Špela Gornik

Slovenia

As a true bookworm Špela encountered Mantak Chia’s books on cultivating sexual energy back in the ’90s. She was so enchanted by the discoveries that she decided to enroll in Chinese studies at the university. After becoming quite familiar with the Chinese language and culture (which also included living, studying, and working in China), Špela immersed herself into studying the Chinese sexual arts from authentic sources. She has been collaborating with many Chinese doctors while working in the field of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as a translator. Through her work and study, she has realized that Chinese medicine, along with meditation, contributes the most to the theoretical as well as practical foundations of sexual practices for nourishing health and longevity. Love – giving it, feeling it, and making it – provides Špela’s continuous incentive for spiritual growth.
