At least 5,000 years ago tantric visionaries, inspired by the deepest reverence and passion for unveiling the sacred beauty and mysteries of life, developed what we know as the practice of Hatha Yoga.

As described in the various tantric texts, Hatha Yoga includes the following practices: asana, pranayama, bandha, kriya, mudra, mantra, meditation as well as practices pertaining to kundalini awakening, along with a seemingly endless array of other techniques and knowledge.

Tantra’s core principle asserts that through self-knowledge and the cultivation of our innate power, we can unfold our fullest potential and thus achieve both worldly and spiritual prosperity.

Using the traditional tools of Hatha as our foundation, this training will explore, through practice and theory, Tantra as the full flowering of Yoga, as well as, its uniquely profound approaches to meditation. Practices will weave together dynamic vinyasa, asana, bandhas and mudra in combination with breath work, meditation and visualization techniques. Class time will also include lecture, theory, Q&A, meditation and chanting.

Designed to enrich dedicated practitioners, aspiring teachers, and those already teaching, Tantra Shakti training consists of two parts: morning practices and afternoon theory sessions.
