Tantra and Tantric Yoga

Tantra in Sanskrit means to weave together the divine principles of the masculine and the feminine, and we do this in a variety of ways that teaches us essentially how to love ourselves full and completely. Through meditation, touch, communication, study of how the opposite sex thinks and feels, rituals and pure intentions, a person with an interest in tantra will be rewarded at the right time on his or her path. We offer you an introduction on this vast and sacred subject.
Hatha tantric a yoga is a type of physical yoga that employs body positions known as asanas to study the universe through the human microcosm. Tantric yoga seeks to balance - not renounce – human desires and instincts in an attempt to reach enlightenment through practice. Its rituals encourage its participants to build up kundalini energy in the top chakras so that we are living the highest quality of life as possible, therefore getting what we need on all levels, being generous in our ways and also ethical in our relations. Sublimation practices, such as uddiyana bandha are commonly used in the yoga practices in order to ready the practitioner for:

Asanas/yoga postures for opening and purification of one’s body
Meditation and concentration, to work on presence
Breath expansion, sexual energy sublimation, success in uddiyana bhanda
Mantras which can call in love, attractiveness, partnership
Rituals and intentions to make everyday actions divine

Tantric yoga originates from hatha yoga and worships the dynamic and static principles of the universe: Shakti (dynamic, creative, feminine) and Shiva (static, destructive, masculine). Through the practices and exercises we will continually play between these principles and play with our bodies and each other. This experience will be juicy, testing and expanding. You are totally safe and welcome to experiment.

The study of tantra is vast; this retreat aims to weave in the ancient knowledge of tantra that was previously passed down orally to students who were ready to receive the teachings. We will look at the human embodiment of Goddesses such as Kali and Tara, as well as incorporating the tantric meditation methodologies of Osho Rajneesh in order to bring participants closer to the realization of who they are through exercises aimed at full awareness on the topic of love, body image, societal conditioning and quality of touch with presence.
