Tantra and Hatha yoga are deeply connected to each other by their roots. Ha-Tha are powerful practices that allows us to bring together two opposite energies into a symbiotic relationship for clarity and transformation. The word Tantra comes from Sanskrit, its root tan means to expand, and the word tantra means to weave, or loom together.

There are several important aspects to a Tantric practice. These include Deva, Mantra, Mudra, Prana and Nyasa. As all the elements of a Tantric Hatha practice are connected, the group will also include a dynamic alignment based Asana sequence that will allow participants to flow from one practice to the next.

Initially, the students will look at the above mentioned practices on their own, and as the workshop evolves will incorporate these practices into one flowing practice. In this incorporative practice, students will have the opportunity to experience the profound connection between Hatha and Tantra.

Come with an open mind and experience the depth of Tantric Hatha Yoga. Jai Shri Ma!
