Tao teaches the esoteric practices of traditional tantric yoga (hatha, kriya, laya, deity yoga, subtle energy yoga, maithuna, more) from Saiva, Sakta, and Vajrayana perspectives, as well as Dr. Glenn J. Morris’s modern synergistic internal alchemy practice, the Improved Kundalini Awakening Process, through two online programs, one with a DIY ethic, and the other with weekly personal instruction.
Interactive Online Video Curriculum in Tantric Yoga
UmaaTantra.com’s Online College of Tantric Yoga provides non-dogmatic interactive online video courses in the secret methods and worldview of Inner (esoteric) Tantric Yoga. This curriculum is only available online, and only available from this website. It is fully supported by the instructors through interactive office hours via broadcast video, skype, and phone.
The non-sectarian teachings are presented to you with modern technology, but retain their traditional transformative power. We are passing on the worldviews and methods of traditional Tantra, while transmitting as little spiritual and cultural prejudice (modern or ancient) as possible.
The Online College begins with a Core Curriculum: three years of three 12-week trimesters, interspersed with Dr. Morris’s KAP curriculum. You may stop and starting as you need. That core curriculum is followed by three years worth of supplemental courses and sadhanas (practices). We do not aim to be fully accredited academic institution, i.e., we do not offer courses in calculus, English literature, and the like. We only present tantra yoga and directly related desciplines, and we do it very thoroughly.
We teach esoteric yoga’s powerful fundamentals and advanced techniques for transformation and expansion of personality, experience, energy, and awareness, and union with the ineffable. We do not teach the College curriculum locally, only online! The college courses provide both the practical and theoretical background for the events we do locally…

Our Events in Miami, Florida, and elsewhere in the United States
The majority of our instructors are physically located in Miami, Florida, USA. We teach aspects of traditional Tantra (both dakshina and vamamarg) as well as inner tantric yoga sadhana through our events and workshops in Miami and elsewhere in the States.
We also travel to teach worldwide workshops on Tantric Hatha, Kriya, and Raja Yoga, Mantra and Yantra Laya, Deity Yoga, Pranavidya, Avishkara, Laya Yoga, Swara Yoga, the Visual Yogas, Maithuna, Sukshma Vyayam, Taoist and Buddhist Qigong, Internal Alchemy, and more…
The online college curriculum provides a foundational, experiential understanding for all of our local and worldwide workshops and practices.
We no longer see the need for a fixed location, but rather teach at non-dogmatic and non-sectarian yoga studios and retreat centers in the US and worldwide, helping students of many lineages and traditions to understand and unfold the powerful inner aspects of their existing meditation, yoga asana, pranayama, and qigong practices…
We have existed as Umaa Tantra, both on the Web, and in Miami, Florida, since 1999.
You can read commentaries from some of our students and workshop attendees on the pages of our course descriptions and here on our testimonials page.
Vedic and Tantric Religious Ceremony: Puja, Yajna, Homa
Although our above programs in the physical and meditative practices Inner Tantric Yoga are non-sectarian and require no religious affiliation (indeed, we have secular practitioners, spiritual practitioners, and practitioners –including some clergy– from all five major religions and many indigenous shamanic traditions), tantric yoga is also a deep part of the exoteric aspects of several religions: Sanatana Dharma (Hinduism), Buddhism, Jainism, and Bon.
One of our senior Umaa Tantra instructors, Esly Caldwell, III, A.P. (Rama Das), is also a highly skilled Acupuncture Physician, and a full Vedic Priest and pujari under Sanatana Dharma Satsang, in the lineage of Sadguru Sant Kesheva Das, Sadguru Rama Mata, Namadeva Acharya (Western mantra authority Thomas Ashley-Farrand), and Satyabhama (Margalo Ashley-Farrand).
Rama Das offers puja/homa (traditional Vedic and Tantric water abisheka and fire offering ceremonies) each weekend locally in Miami, and worldwide via video stream through his puja/homa program, available for all who connect with traditional Vedic and Tantric Hindu (Sanatana Dharma) and Buddhist water and fire ceremonies.
