This Tantra Massage Teacher Training Course is partially residential and partially non-residential. This is an overview of the schedule:
Day 1 is dedicated to arriving to the residential venue, Adila Retreat Center, getting settled, enjoying a nice dinner together with the group, meeting your teachers and receiving a briefing regarding how to prepare and what to expect in the days and weeks to come.

10:00 Certification ceremony and final sharing
13:00 Conclusion and departure
Conclusion is at 13:00. Please do not plan your departure (i.e. flights) earlier than 16:00 on this day. Many participants choose to postpone their departure for 1-3 additional days for spiritual and emotional integration, to explore Tallinn and do some sightseeing and/or to spend some quality time with their peers.
We recommend that you arrive to Tallinn, Estonia, a day before the course begins. This leaves you enough time to arrive peacefully and without rushing and also offers a buffer in the case of unexpected travel delays or changes.
The course begins on 9 March, therefore the recommended arrival date would be on 8 March 2023.
We also strongly recommend that you do not plan your departure from Tallinn on the same day when the course ends. Experience shows from previous TTC’s that the last day is precious for integration and preparing for your re-entry into the world as well as for celebrating your accomplishment with your peers.
The course officially ends on 7 April, therefore the recommended departure date would be 8 April 2023, or later.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not make travel arrangements until you receive an email from our team stating that the course group has been fully confirmed and it is ok to finalise bookings.

The residential Part 1 of this course is held in a countryside location 45-minute drive from Tallinn, in Adila Retreat Center. It is a quiet and serene location in the middle of calm and beautiful nature. We have a newly built large practice hall in our disposal, spacious lakeside sauna and various wooden houses and cottages for accommodation.
During Part 1 you will be placed in shared occupancy with 2 to 4 same gender people per room. Higher quality rooms will be allocated to the first subscribers. Couples will have their own private room. All rooms have shared bathrooms (no en suite) and some cottages have a shared shower and bathrooms in a separate building nearby.
The non-residential Part 2 of this course is held in the Tao Center located in the heart of Tallinn – an idyllic location with cobblestone streets, beautiful architecture and plenty of nearby gourmet restaurants and shops within walking distance.
The center is complete with two comfortable and cozy Yoga halls, separate men and women’s changing rooms with showers, co-ed sauna and a lovely common area for breaks.
