Our Tantra Massage Teacher Training Course (TMTTC) is created to provide a unique opportunity for spiritually oriented students to become highly skilled in the transformative knowledge of Tantra Massage as conceived by Somananda, the founder and head teacher of Somananda Tantra School.
This intensive 28-day program will prepare you to present the relevant lectures as well as the theoretical and practical presentations needed to successfully lead Tantra Massage courses or retreats anywhere in the world (in Estonia the TMTTC graduate is licensed to teach as part of the Somananda Tantra School team only).
This course has prerequisites! Please read the below text carefully to know what they are.
Becoming a Tantra Massage teacher gives you the tools to truly change people’s lives and have a spiritual impact on the world. In our modern environment, where most people struggle with health problems, sexual blockages, and psychosomatic problems and limitations, a Tantra Massage teacher can bring light, healing, and love into people’s lives.
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 Tantra Massage TTC is normally conducted as a retreat at a countryside residential venue, and includes accommodation and meals (see specific a TTC for details). 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 normally conducted as a non-residential instructional program in a city (see specific a TTC for details). 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.
For a detailed Tantra Massage TTC schedule see the page of a particular course (list of upcoming Tantra Massage TTCs is given below).
The Tantra Massage TTC 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:
Additionally, it is recommended that you also have participated in our Tantra Yoga Level 1 course or in 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 you have done will be refunded.
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.
For the purpose of creating a balanced and harmonious group, this course can be joined by application only. Once you have completed your deposit payment online you will receive a link to a short application form by email. Upon completing the form your application will be processed and an answer will be given within five working days. If an applicant is not approved to join the TMTTC, the full deposit payment will be refunded.
This course includes nudity and intimate personal touch. It is essential that those wishing to join are ready to open up and approach this subject with maturity, sincerity, and respect. Please realistically evaluate yourself before applying. There is no explicit sexuality in this training and no explicit sexual activity is part of the curriculum. The course does require that every participant is open to practicing massage with all participants of the opposite gender. Again, please evaluate your readiness for this.
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.
