What is Traditional Tantra Yoga?

Did you know there is a difference between Classical or Traditional Tantra, and neo-tantra?

Traditional Tantra has nothing to do with 'tantric sex' or 'sensual pleasure'.

 

Traditional Tantra is an ancient spiritual tradition with the goal of awakening, liberation and becoming one with All that is.

 

The Kaula tradition starts from the concept of non-duality. There is only The One or The Whole, and everything in this manifestation of reality is part of the Whole. This is beautifully expressed by the Purna Mantra.


Purna mantra

Om Purnamadah Purnamidam
Purnat Purnamudachyate
Purnasya Purnamadaya
Purnamevavashisyate

This is Whole, that is Whole
Taking away the Whole from the Whole,
the Whole still remains Whole.


What does this mean for our yoga practice?

In our practice we let go of our attachments and conditioningThis means letting go of:

  • expectations around our body 
  • what our body should look like to be able to do yoga
  • what the postures should look like
  • any form of physical performance or achievement
  •  conceptions about what 'more advanced postures' are
  • always choosing the harder option
  •  competition with ourself and with others
  •  our Ego

This makes Traditional Tantra Yoga suitable for absolute beginners and advanced yogis alike

And as you exhale, 
completely relax.

Tridosha balancing series

Traditional Tantra Yoga is a gentle and meditative style of yoga. Yet it is powerful too: we hold our asanas (postures) long. Postures are mixed with breathing exercises and savasana (corpse pose) to fully integrate the effects of our practice.  We practice a sequence called the 'Tridosha Balancing Series'. This sequence is culturing strength and flexibility in the body while allowing the body to fully relax at the same time.
