The TMTTC involves a total of 200 hours of intense theoretical studies and practical training. The course is conducted over a period of four weeks, and culminates with a theoretical and practical exam.
Upon the successful completion of the exam, a Tantra Massage Teacher’s Certificate will be issued to graduates by the Somananda Tantra School.
Week 1 of the TMTTC is conducted as a retreat at a countryside residential venue, and includes accommodation and meals (see venue info below). Such arrangements will allow participants to get to know each other better and to develop a harmonious and intimate group atmosphere.
Weeks 2 to 4 are conducted as a non-residential instructional program in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. For this period of time participants will need to book their own accommodation; our team will send recommendations to participants. The teaching venue in Tallinn is located downtown (see venue info below). Weeks 2 to 4 include practicum training sessions, during which all participants will give lectures and lead practical sessions for their peers and TTC teachers, to be followed by feedback and comments on their performance.
The TMTTC will be limited to 28 participants.
Our TMTTC is conducted in the English language. During practicums students will need to give lectures (about 30 minutes) and conduct practical sessions in English. Please be sure that your language proficiency is at the necessary level before you apply for the course.
Our Tantra Massage TTC is a more advanced level course and requires that the applicants have gained specific fundamental knowledge and experience prior to enrolling for this teacher training.
To apply for the Tantra Massage TTC you will need to:
- Have completed our 10-day Tantra Massage Therapist Training (TMT) with a certificate.
- Confirm online that you accept the Tantra Massage Teacher Code of Conduct and that you are willing to sign this document also physically upon arrival to the course (you will not be accepted to join the course without these steps).
- Have a mandatory video interview with our head teacher Somananda.
Additionally, it is strongly recommended that you have also completed our Tantra Yoga Level 1 course or our 260-hour Yoga Teacher Training Course. However, this is not a requirement for applying to the Tantra Massage TTC.
After the above steps are completed, you will be notified of your acceptance or non-acceptance to the TMTTC. In case of non-acceptance all payments submitted by you will be fully refunded.

Final Exam & Certification
In order to receive the Somananda Tantra Massage Teacher’s Certificate a participant must successfully pass both the theoretical and practical elements of the exam and be present in 95% of the teaching sessions.
The theoretical element includes multiple-choice questions. The practical element includes a general cumulative assessment of all practicums led by the participant during the TMTTC plus additional practical assignments given by the lead teachers. A student’s final exam grade must meet or exceed 80 percent in order to receive the certification.
Please note that participation in this TTC alone DOES NOT guarantee certification. You will need to acquire and display all the necessary skills to be eligible for a certificate. Final decision will be done by the TMTTC head teacher Somananda. Not passing your practicums and/or theoretical exam at the required level means that you can apply for a certificate at a later time, after more personal practice and preparation has been achieved. Please be aware of this before you make your payment.
The TMTTC aims to reach open-minded individuals who would like to embark on a tantric journey with an authentic spiritual focus. If you feel a genuine wish to learn about the mystical properties of energy as taught by Tantra and their use and benefits for personal and spiritual evolution and you have a respectful, humble attitude toward passing this knowledge on to others, you are a good candidate for becoming a Somananda Tantra Massage teacher.
This intensive 28-day program will prepare you to present relevant lectures as well as the theoretical and practical presentations needed to successfully lead upto five-day Tantra Massage courses and retreats.
The TMTTC does not give any license to teach our 10-day Tantra Massage Therapist Trainings (TMT) nor the TMTTC itself.
The TMTTC is a 28-day course that prepares the participant to teach Somananda Tantra Massage to others either in group courses or individual format. This training is geared toward acquiring the practical skills and credentials necessary to teach Tantra Massage. The TMTTC does not give any license to teach our 10-day Tantra Massage Therapist Trainings (TMT) nor the TMTTC itself.
The 10-day TMT (Tantra Massage Therapist Training) provides the needed training to offer Tantra Massage sessions personally or professionally for your partner, friends, or clients. The TMT does not license you to teach Tantra Massage on any occasion, either in group courses or individually.
Tantric science is all about energy and in the Tantra Massage teachings we will focus a lot on learning to master energy in a way that brings about whole-body blissful and orgasmic experiences. We will also focus on this knowledge in the TMTTC.
However, although our Tantra Massage courses provide valuable life-changing experiences and teachings in tantric energy and spiritual knowledge, it is important to clarify that we cannot guarantee feeling energy, having energy-based experiences, or experiencing orgasms during the TTC’s duration.
These experiences depend on individual levels of purity, whether or not blockages exist, and karma, among other things – and therefore cannot be guaranteed. In some cases more time and individual practice may be needed. Please consider this before applying for the TMTTC.
Both singles and couples can join this course, but all participants will be practicing (i.e. giving and receiving massages) with many partners throughout the course duration. We strive for gender balance in the course numbers.
In this training the practical exercises will be conducted mainly with men and women in pairs. Women will have the opportunity to receive yoni massage and to practice giving lingam massage to men and additionally to practice giving yoni massage to women.
Men will have the opportunity to receive lingam massage from women and to practice giving yoni massage to women. Additionally men will practice guiding lingam massage without physical touch.
This course includes nudity and personal intimate touch with various partners of the opposite sex, so it is essential that those wishing to join be ready to open up and approach this subject with maturity and an open mind. Please realistically evaluate yourself before applying to join, and by your application agree that you assure us you are fully prepared to join. A respectful atmosphere is kept at all times.
Upon your successful completion of the course and final exam, a Tantra Massage Teacher’s Certificate will be issued to you by the Somananda Tantra School.
In the unlikely event that you do not pass the exam, you may take it again at a later date. Until that time, a certificate will not be issued to you.
All of our Tantra Massage courses provide valuable life-changing experiences and teachings about tantric energy and spiritual knowledge. Although many participants experience energy-based orgasmic sensations during the course, it is important to clarify that our massage courses cannot guarantee feeling energy, having energy-based experiences, or experiencing orgasms of any kind during the course period itself.
These experiences depend on individual levels of purity, whether or not blockages exist, and karma, among other things – and therefore cannot be guaranteed. In some cases more time and individual practice are needed. Please keep this in mind before you register for any of our Tantra Massage courses.
