Joseph Kramer PHD the ‘Grandfather’ of Erotic Massagewww.eroticmassage.com, said: “ These Tantric Massage Rituals will change your sex life, profound teachings and stunningly beautiful, there’s no competition. “
"The DVD!! WOW!!! Thank you for gifting the world with a much needed guide to healing and transformation. It is truly inspirational. You have given me the best definition of Tantra ever..."Tantra is sacred rituals and honouring the divine in beloved other". That has just resonated with me so deeply. As I looked at clips both upstairs and downstairs I was struck by the spirituality, sensuality, the honesty, the love, and the great sensitivity of the dvd. YOU my dear sister are a true VISIONARY and wise woman. It is a testimony to who you are that there were other tantra teachers present, saying so many wonderful things about you, the dvd. As I throw off the the remaining shackles that keep me from truly being my authentic self, I look to you as teacher, mentor......I give thanks to the universe for guiding me to you. " DW 7th Oct

Hanna and Martin's workshops have brought us an unbelievably wonderful quality to our relationship."NF

"Relationships are not a miracle, they are an endeavor.
Hanna and Martin's workshops have brought us an unbelievably wonderful quality to our relationship.
We both realised that our sexual energy is the power behind life-force. Its our birthright.
And this wisdom has been lost through the ages because of patriarchy and modernity."NF
"Hanna and Martin use the sanscrit texts of the Vedas to retrieve this wisdom and after 25 years of teaching, they are masters of this work.
They offer a yoga for relationships - a sacred practi"e for partners who are committed to their relationship and who long for the true love connection to be in their lives"NF
"When I came home a book had been delivered from Amazon called ‘love is letting go of fear’...It is based on ‘a course in miracles. The funny thing is, you two could almost have been involved in writing it - at various points I could almost hear you or Martin speaking."AM Apr 11

Cobra Breath – A dear and very spiritual friend had spoken a little to me about tantra when I was on holiday in Turkey, so when I came home I decided to find out more about it. I was keen to avoid the ‘neo-tantra’ type of groups, so after some internet searching and a series of ‘coincidences’ I eventually arrived at Sahaja. I really wanted to do a singles workshop, but there wasn’t one when I was available, so I decided to go for it, and attended the Cobra Breath weekend instead. It was November, it was snowing, the journey was horrible, and I questioned my sanity in driving halfway across the country when I could have been tucked up safe with a glass of wine and a DVD. But I was so glad I made the effort, it was the best thing I have done for myself in a long time! The first thing we did was to introduce ourselves – Hanna asked us to say what experience we had of yoga or tantra, and what we expected to get out of the weekend. When it was my turn I said ‘I have no experience of yoga, I have no experience of tantra, and I have no idea what to expect’... and everyone laughed (in a friendly way!). But what I found, as the weekend progressed, was that the ethos and premise of tantra was familiar to me, even though at the same time it was new to me. It is not an exaggeration to say I felt I had ‘come home’. What does all this have to do with Kriya Yoga (Cobra Breath)? You’ll have to go along and discover this for yourself. I can only say that for me it was a major step forward on my spiritual journey, and the fact that I have since been back to Sahaja is testament to that. Give yourself this gift, you will not regret it! AMSingles Workshop level 1 – I laughed, I cried, I sang, I danced, I meditated, I made heart connections with some wonderful people. During the process I learned a lot about myself and gained some understanding of the blocks that are currently holding me back from manifesting my soulmate – and gained some tools to help me to dissolve those blocks. Throughout the weekend I felt totally loved and emotionally supported by Hanna and Martin, and the other participants. Sahaja has a beautiful energy all of its own and it is such a blessing to spend time there. I came away feeling lighter in spirit, and with a sense of purpose. I will certainly be back...... AM
"once again thank you so much for a wonderful weekend - it just keeps getting better and better, and thank you for letting us stay last night, it made the transition so much gentler. It's really special to have met you both, I appreciate your wisdom, teaching and guidance so much and to find a friendship alongside is just the icing on the cake!"JH
"Thanks for a lovely and transforming weekend." AB
"We both enjoyed the workshop very much – A told someone yesterday it was the best workshop we had done together. I feel we have new friends, special friends that we shared something different and special with."
"This was an amazing workshop. I can for the first time be in contact with my full
wild male energy, whilst knowing that it is safe for this energy to arise". T Cobra Nov '10
"We came to do this workshop for the second time, and it was really worth it. Lots
of new insights and revelations, inspiration to carry on for months to come, and of
course, a really enjoyable, wonderful weekend away – stunning scenery even though
its November, cosy accommodation, great food and hospitality and the most beautiful
and amiable people – getting really close to the other couples – don’t miss out on a
magic weekend. I & S, Couple
"We are practising your teachings.......in fact S just danced for me naked to a ... track....hmmm wow it was amazing and brings back memories!"MB
"A great mix of physical working through things, moving meditation, quieter
meditation, talking around circle and linking with other people. Excitement and
surprised as ever. "AB Advanced Singles, Dec 2010.
"This is just to say a big thank-you. You gave me such wonderful support, when things blew up ...That was a really scary and difficult period for me. At each stage, I felt you were really there for me. And you also helped me, as I felt the pain of losing the relationship ... You were so affirming of me, at a time when I was really doubting myself big-time.I am full of gratitude."
"phew... what an amazing weekend - it really exceeded my expectations, I really feel that I'd like to train properly with you (as does N) - ever since I left S, I've been looking for a new direction and I'm SO excited to have found you, I love your style and the power of your teachings."JH
" It also felt really good to think that there was a real understanding on spiritual outlook too. I could connect easily to what you were saying."P
"thank you both so much - I'm very cynical and possibly bitter in my middle age and take a lot of impressing but you guys were brilliant"JH
"Felt the weekend was run on a very professional basis and can see a lot of exciting
things starting to evolve. "AB Advanced Singles, Dec 2010.
"I am back for the advanced course now. Two months ago I left the course in energy
and intimacy and my life has been transformed totally since then. I was an introvert
person, due to previous issues, when I first came to the course. Now I am a totally
extrovert person and it is noticed by everyone and at work. I communicate better with
my staff and they often ask me ‘what has happened to you?’. I tell them that people
change if they want to, but I know that tantra works miracles. In 2 months, my life
has changed more than it had in the last 20 years. A big thank you to Martin and
Hannah." Nv Advance Singles 3.12.10
"The day after i really thought and felt that work was less than important! I think it has become less important in terms of worrying about it. I think I am a lot more relaxed about that part of my life. I feel more contentment. I would like other people to be able to experience tantra."
"The profound and powerful experiences offered up by Hanna and Martin in their couples' weekends are the stuff of poetry, legend, mythology - and as such I find my humble tongue at a loss for words. For those who are willing to put their trust in the space and guidance offered during that time, and throw themselves body heart and mind into the practices therein, transformation awaits, on a personal, interpersonal and transpersonal level. Each man discovers what it is to be a god, and becomes a better man for it, and each woman redefines what it is to be a goddess, and becomes a happier woman for it. As for the relationship that they have put through the delicious paces devised by Hanna and Martin, they will see it emerge blinking into the sun, a stunning many coloured butterfly, freed from its redundant cocoon, renewed, blessed, and bursting with tenderness. Healing, challenge, communication, bliss, understanding, strength, power, tears, laughter, dance, ecstasy, these are just a few of the things you may expect to find yourself sharing with your beloved if you choose to take a dive together into the delicious waves of Transcendence Authentic Tantra Yoga. You will lose yourself to the senses, you may have visions of the gods, you shall unite your voices in song, your bodies in bliss, and your hearts in love. Whatever are you waiting for?!
Namaste beloved teachers" NRS

"I did a Cobra Breath Meditation followed by some chi gong exercises - wonderful. During my chi-gong exercise (working on my lungs), I saw in front of me a black figure, sitting crossed legged in yoga position...and it/he had a huge penis! It glowed red and then it moved through the chakras upwards - turning into a flame as it went..right up through the Crown. Powerful! LM
"Been a few days since writing but have been on a wonderful and powerful retreat. Having arrived early to beat the snow following me down the country.. meet up with a lovely group of people, new energies and sharing.
Powerful exercises, rituals and yoga..deepening, and opening all.
The most powerful one for me following the cobra breath meditation...seeing the cobra entwine up my spine, higher and higher, evolving evolution. Then deep in the blackness, but with almost a ultra violet essence to it... I physically feel an elixir being poured into my throat, I can feel it go through my sinuses, down my thorax, and down.. and then feel it surging around my bloodstream.. Reminds me of receiving an anaesthetic, and that feeling of a loss of control over the body. Once I let go of that thought.. i surrender into the bliss of this wonderful elixir, seemingly gifted to me by Mother Serpent and surrender to its effects..
The blackness, intermingled with ultra violet light, pinky hues...see a Kolidascope of circles going around and around, with one huge one in the centre.. spiralling around. My Third Eye is burning..and the chemical is pouring down, metallic taste, silvery/mercury sense to it...
A while later, felt that I needed to go and have a wee by the willow tree in the garden... I can actually smell the chemical release and pour in to the Earth... like a toxin being released. Then later, the same again.. and then a bleed. So much energy pouring through my body..feels like the chemical/toxin did removed some impurities..
"Couldnt drive anywhere..very spacey, and the flow of energy strong through my body. "LM

"Thank you for providing such a loving. Supportive, friendly environment – I feel that
I have made some lovely friends." AM, Nov 2010
"First of all thank you
for offering such an experience – a holistic experience indeed. And this
does not go for the “body and soul massage” only but also for the conversation
we had before and after the massage. I will keep our discussion and your advice
as a life guide - a life where loving and caring is of outmost importance. You
managed to understand my needs and addressed those from our first meeting. I already
experience the reframing of sex into something of higher/divine at a personal level but most importantly to my relation with my wife." MITM
"Thank you for an amazing weekend. It is incredible to confront stuff and move through it with ritual and love in such a safe place. I have felt far calmer since coming home. I was quite unwell for the two weeks before we came to you, and something has definitely cleared."VONW

myself with each and every one of them. I really enjoyed the whole group and
was amazed how quickly we all got on."

I have so much to work on over the coming months. Hopefully when I download
the songs used it will take me back to that wonderful temple atmosphere."
I drove G and D home and we took a detour to Stonehenge. It was a lovely ending to my weekend "JJs
"Thank you both for a great, and gentle, introduction to Tantra last weekend. This is a profoundly liberating learning process for me - thank you"DLM.
"Hanna and Martin expertly and gently helped the participants to open up their bodies, minds and chakras using yoga, meditation, discussion, instruction, demonstrations and other techniques. The very nature of opening up meant that some people had emotional highs and lows, these were nurtured lovingly and with immense care and humility. I remain deeply moved by my time in the temple. I have practiced the Cobra Breath every day and have enjoyed renewed energy and am anticipating future joys as I become more adept at it. This was a life enhancing week end led by two beautiful teachers and will remain with me always." J J

“would like to thank you for the wonderful Couples Intimacy weekend we spent with
you. We loved your natural, informal, relaxed approach to everything. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we felt so welcome, so well fed, and the tuition just seemed to flow like an organic extension to eating, sleeping and just having
fun...so many fond memories.
The magical house and garden, the amazing space that contained us all, the awakening of our senses, the opportunity to share experiences and to be witnessed, without judgement. The structure suited us...the practice between exercises was effective and so became desirable and possible to continue.
The striking aspect for me, was the openess, and the sense that tantra is the most natural
and loving ,and without ego ,activity you could possibly engage in." P&J 20th June 2010
“We are so grateful to have had the opportunity-Lovely!-to meet you both!
It feels that we have been searching for this for a long time: Intimacy, Playfulness, Love, Healing, Exploring and Expressing Sensuality...
Thank you for sharing with us your sacred knowledge!” M&R from Brazil 09
“The workshop has been life changing for me. In some ways it feels like letting go of reality as I know it and moving away from the material world. The feeling of connection I am now feeling is growing stronger every day.
It feels like I am pulled out of the top of my head at times with a feeling of orgasmic ecstacy – and sometimes it happens when I lie down and meditate and other times it just happens. I feel so loving when this happens and it has changed how I relate to everything.
The workshop has taught me to open up to receiving, and as that has happened I am finding myself able to have a connection I did not think I would ever feel in this life.
If is say I touched the bliss then perhaps that’s the best way I can describe it, but I had no idea that from the place of pain and despair I was in that could be possible.
The holding of me and sending of love from so many gentle and loving souls was incredible. I realized also that allowing others to give to you is also healing for themselves and perhaps I had not been aware of that before.
Before I came my connection with nature (when I walk in a wood I just feel at home) had gone and it was devastating – felt like the lights had gone out in my world. It felt terrifying because it was my lifeline in times of struggle and always made me feel safe.
Driving home I drove into the most blazing and beautiful sunset and the connection with nature came back. I realize each time the waves of pain come it is an opportunity to surrender and know that the connection with the Divine love we all share will always be there.
…I am no longer resisting anything that comes through for me and I am living my life just as it comes…I feel that the Tantra path is something I need to keep following and I hope you will be willing to keep being my teachers. I find it challenging but I know that it s nourishing for me and I know I am meant to continue on this journey. I love you both very, very deeply… I feel such a strong bond with you…I cannot explain it – it feels like you were sent to save me in this lifetime and you really have both saved my life.
I would never have jumped off a cliff, despite the despair I felt, but I knew my spirit was dying and I had lost the strength to do anything about it. If you hadn’t persuaded me to keep driving down, and been so amazingly calm in the midst of my panic, I am not sure I would have made it.
With All My Love and Gratitude. Also deepest Gratitude to all the Shivas and Shaktis that helped to heal me and so generously gave their love.
Somehow none of the above really expresses the gratitude I feel but I am just so grateful.” SD 25th September 2009
“I just wanted you both to know that I went to Biodanza tonight…and I felt such over-whelming love for him but with no pain. The other dancers told me I danced like an angel and I felt like I was in another reality filled with love and compassion and such joy I cannot explain. Thank-you so much for bringing me to this place.
I am no longer striving to find the right job or way forward – just trusting the right ways will open up for me. If you feel you have work for me just let me know and I will honestly go with what feels right.
You have changed my life so much – I know I will never live the same way again. Tonight I hugged all the Biodanzers – not just the ones I have a strong bond with and are my friends – I just felt so much love for everyone and everything.
For the first time I could let go of that reserve that always held me back and life became so much more beautiful. With loving Thanks and more love xxxx S… xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx” 26th Sept 09
"The cobra workshop was amazing! I've been practicing non-stopsince. Its my new addiction! Have to say tho, that the cobra breath isvery powerful and I've been experiencing alot of release in my sex and base chakras. It feels like... I can start fully manifesting my purpose as a service soul. I've restricted cobra breaths to 7 per day, as 28 felt like I was going to ascend!" GAK 13th June 09
"Its been a surreal and full on few weeks since that cobra breath weekend at the end of November! I feel like I have been on one long workshop/retreat... P coming to stay with me was a week long course.. where we undertook at least 2 of the practices daily along with cobra breath together.. A path I would love to continue - I would very much would like to learn more about the cobra breath...go deeper."LM
“I have attended several Transcendence workshops in Salisbury and in London and they continue to fill me with inspiration. After enjoying the experience of working witha variety of tantra teachers, I have discovered that I like the way that Hanna and Martin both share their knowledge and wisdom. I am continually attracted by their authenticity and dedication to the teachings of the Kriya Yoga path of Tantra."
"My second Cobra Breath weekend with them last month at Sahaja helped to reinforce the lessons learned from the first. Whether a large groupor a small group they succeeded in providing an excellent space for each person to learn and grow. Questions were answered kindly, difficulties dealt with sensitively and their support helped us unite as a group. We are fortunate that what they teach is closely aligned to the Universal Cosmic Cobra Breath references found in “The Jewel and the Lotus”.
"The sign of a good teacher is one who inspires people to learn, practise and return for more. I am motivated to practise my Cobra Breaths regularly and knowothers from Transcendence courses who report benefits from doing the same. Attention to this breathing technique is a pleasure and not a chore, thanks tothe informative way that it is taught. Ienjoy the wonderful effects which help me to live my daily life in a state of bliss and it is easy to see why students return to Transcendence again and again and again." Carole Chandler, London, 20th July 2009
“A sparkling thing happened the other day. Anold friend who ...I have never felt in the slightest bit attracted to him, andhave always regarded him simply as a very good friend, maybe sometimes even abrother. In the moment though, I was able to notice that my energies towardshim had subtly shifted, and we ended up sharing much more than pizza. My senseis that my higher self saw the sparkling potential of this moment on the horizon for me, and that my mind translated this into "I am ready...". I believe this sparkling moment was made possible as a result of the increasein meditative practices I have been doing - such as the cobra breath and so hum- leading me to subtler levels of awareness and presence.” CG 13th July 09
Thank you so much for our lovely (private) couple session. It went so well, I was surprised about ... Really! He said he will now do a workshop! Said he now understands more about what I mean when I talk about things....It was very profound for him, so thank you so much....We both Loved it xxx 11th Sep 09 T&J

The orgasms were the most intense and all spectacular I could imagine, encompassing my entire body and being. I truly felt total unity with the universe and felt at the very centre of it,
strength through serenity. Even now I still feel the warmth and energy
