What's Tantric Vinyasa I hear you say?
Sorry to disappoint, but it's clothes on my friend, clothes on! The word Tantra has become synonymous with sex in the West (surprise, surprise) but the powerful sexual techniques of Tantra are only part of the story.
Tantra is a broad range of practical teachings leading to the expansion of consciousness. The unifying principle is that our worldly experiences can be utilised to attain enlightenment. Within these teaching are the use of "mantras (vibrational tuning through sounds), yantras (concentration symbols to liberate the consciousness), chakras (realisation of psychic centres), mandalas (perception of macrocosmos in microcosmos), tapasya (practices of self-purification), Raja Yoga (integral yoga), pranayama (yogic breathing practices), self surrender, shaktipat (transmission of energy) and tantric initiations ( master to disciple)" - Bihar Yoga
My yoga and meditation classes are for everyone.
Old, young, chubby, skinny, bendy, stiff, male, female, trans, carnivore, herbivore, happyvore (actually don't eat the happy people please) It's for you if you like heart centred, soul affirming & fun - come as you are. I like to work with the yogic concept of Santosha in my yoga and meditation practice. It's the Sanskrit term for 'contentment', meaning 'accepting what is'. In this way, I encourage you to just accept where you are at in your yoga practice, loving your body as it is. I feel this encourages happy and healthy progression in the asana, and in the mind.
