ABOUT TANTRA YOGA
Tantra Yoga is meditation through both movement and stillness. Its slow and flowing approach builds patience and awareness, and unifies body, emotion and movement. It helps us notice our tension points, fill them with breath, release what does not serve us, and relax into our true nature.
Tantra Yoga practice extends beyond the mat into everyday life. It reveals the power we can harness from mindfully transforming our energy into movement and action. The practice helps show us it’s possible to act and expand/grow through relaxation and the power of intention, rather than through “doing.” This is a welcome alternative to the assumption that success requires constantly doing, exerting lots of energy, and pushing oneself past their limits.
The Sanskrit word “Tantra” refers to expansion and weaving. It is a “tool for expansion,” and represents the process of weaving together single strands of oneself into a unified whole, like a tapestry. This tapestry image illustrates the belief that everything in the universe is interconnected and in communication.
Tantra Yoga students have shared:
• “Being flexible and relaxed transmits into the rest of your life. If you’re calmer and more attuned to yourself, that feeds others.”
• “I can release lots of tensions from my body that come from emotions that I’ve been feeling for a long time.”
• “Being so quiet and present makes you more aware. The more aware you are, the more choices you have. I think I’ll be making better decisions.”
• “I’m realizing how socially constructed I am, a product of what I’ve always been told to do, and that I can redraw myself and explore life in a different way.”
