Inner Heat – Tummo Tantra Breath & Yoga Journey


Breath, move and feel your inner heat and bliss to get through the cold ,wet dark days with ancient  breath, yoga and meditation/visualisation practices.

Tummo breathing, which translates to “inner fire or heat ,” is an ancient  technique originally practiced by Tibetan Tantric Buddhists.

It’s a tantric yoga and meditation practice that uses bioenergetic breathing plus visualization to increase your inner fire.

The instructor Ivar van Hoorn has combined the essence of  authentic Tibetan Buddhism Tantric practices which are backed up by science and years of his own experience into a 2 hrs Inner Journey.

Benefits of Tummo Tantra Breath & Yoga- Happy chemicals, Creativity & Relaxation.

  • The exercises help to generate  happy chemicals like endorfine, serotonine, DMT that help you get through winter dips/depression
  • States of heat/bliss, creative states and finally deep relaxation can be part of your Inner Journey.
  • It’s also a great way so transform the Old year into  New Years intentions.

What to expect

In this 2hour Journey we use some powerfull exercises that can touch on stuck energy and emotions which can be intense (yet transformative).

Therefore at the end part we take plenty of time to calm down the energies and integrate them a safe and grounded way.

P.s. Although sexual energies /feelings can arise the goal of this Journey is not to work with sexuality specifically. There are also no sexual/intimacy excites with others/partners involved.

The Tantra practices in this Journey are there to feel  all  emotions, feelings that can arise to transmute them  into a peaceful bliss state.

This Journey session combines:

– Tummo (Inner Heat) Tantra Yoga & Meditation from the Tantric Buddhist tradition to open up and release stuck emotions and tension and connect to your inner heat and bliss.
– Yoga to open up breathing muscles and the lung meridians (from  Tibetan, Japanese & Chinese Meridian Medicine Tradition).
– Connected Breathing
– Meditation/Visualisation/Intention setting/Integration.

Contra indications:

You should not join if : you are pregnant, have high blood pressure, heart or lung disease, or if you have a history of psychosis.

Feel free to contact me about this. If you can’t join in the group session , perhaps a moderate private session is optional.

Safety and integration

The “journey” you make in this lesson gently builds to an energetic climax that slowly tapers off. The energy is thus safely generated and absorbed into your body and mind so that you can use it optimally afterwards.
