Tantra practices help us access intimacy from a place of deep connection and presence – learning to be truly present in all aspects of who you are including mind, body, emotions and spirit. This connection begins with ourselves. Learn to be more present in your daily life and/or be more present with a partner. This helps to improve intimacy and develop a deeper, stronger connection and improves your relationship.
Tantra Yoga includes Laya Yoga practice, breathwork, meditation and healing techniques. You learn how to be more present, heart-centred and conscious in your loving practices.
Tantra techniques also work with the chakra system in the body. The word chakra means ‘wheels of light’ which represents the spiritual anatomy of the body. These are seven main energy centres that contain the energies of all significant experiences in our life. Through breath work, sounding, movement and mudras (hand positions) we work to move and build our energies to help them move up to the higher realms of consciousness and connection.
Tantra Yoga is the ‘Yoga of Love.’ Tantra is a branch or limb of Yoga. Yoga means ‘yoke or union.’ ‘Tan’ means expansive and ‘tra’ means weaving. It can be a solo practice or practiced with a partner.
