In the tantric tradition, the human body is regarded as a temple, worthy of worship, sacred admiration, and… intense pleasure beyond imagination…. In the sexual teachings of Tantra, intimate massage has developed into one of the most profound healing modalities available on the planet today.
The beneficial aspects of Tantra Massage are many. Its significance today as an instrument of healing is far-reaching and, in fact, mind-blowing. Not only is it famed for its ability to remove sexual and energetic blockages from the body, but it can also eradicate common dysfunctions, an inability to achieve deep states of orgasm (especially in the case of women), and other psychosomatic issues. This is a beautiful way to share the very beneficial aspects of touch and energy exchange, and to bring restorative, sacred healing to your partner or clients.
Our Tantra Massage Therapist Training will train anyone who is interested to become a tantric healer in personal or professional life in the practical skill of Tantra Massage. The course includes the full teachings of yoni and lingam massage (yoni is the ancient sacred name for the female genitalia and lingam is the corresponding term for the male phallus). This is a rare art approached with gratitude, an attitude of transfiguration and devotion, and a commitment to honour the divine tantric heritage, which forms the roots of this amazing practice.
This course is led by our advanced teacher Liisa Maimon.

After the course I feel spiritually pure – my heart is full of unconditional love. I learned to find the energy hidden within me, to direct it, use it, and hold on to it. I was also surprised that suddenly so many amazing people came into my life with this course.
I learned so many new things in this course. Mostly that tantric massage is not just a massage or technique but it is so much more at the mental and spiritual levels.
“I received an important tool for myself as well as the self-confidence to use it. I learned to share love and not be attached – detachment.”

Points are awarded based on observations by the teachers.
The Tantra Massage Therapist Training is meant for open-minded individuals who would like to embark on a tantric journey with authentic spiritual focus.

The course teaches about the nurturing ability of touch as well as the glorious potential of tantric sexuality in general.
Tantric science is all about energy and in 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. Teachings on achieving full body energy orgasms will be one of the focal points of the training.
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 feeling energy, having energy-based experiences, or experiencing orgasms of any kind during the days of the massage course 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 when you register for any of our Tantra massage courses.
Both singles and couples can join this training, but all participants will be practicing (i.e. giving and receiving massage) with many partners throughout the course of the training. Gender equality is aimed for.
In this training exchange of partners for the sake of learning and accumulating experience is essential and cannot be avoided. Being open-minded about working with other partners (in both giving and receiving massage, including yoni and lingam massage) is an absolute prerequisite for joining this training.
In this training the practical exercises will be conducted with men and women in pairs. Women will have the opportunity to receive yoni massage and to practice giving lingam massage. Men will have the opportunity to receive lingam massage and to practice giving yoni massage.
This course includes nudity and personal intimate touch with various partners of 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 the successful completion of the training and the final exam, a Tantra Massage Therapist Certificate will be issued by Somananda Tantra School.
In an unlikely event of you not passing the exam, you can take it again on a later date. Until then a certificate will not be issued to you. However, the exam is not meant to fail you, but to give you an indication of your progress. It will not be too challenging and you will have plenty of time to be well prepared.
This can vary depending on dates and location, but usual group size is between 24-40 people. Groups are normally very international with people from several different continents and from about 10 to 20 different countries.

We do not use massage tables in our courses and work solely on the floor. This method is most efficient for the control of energy and the execution of our massage techniques. Using the supplies and items that each student is instructed to bring for this course, comfortable massage spaces will be set up for each couple.
Working from the floor initially can be challenging for modern people, however, we do find that this generally eases as the course unravels and progresses. Nonetheless, we ask you to please assess your own current physical state to determine if you are able to fully participate in this course.
