Tantra Yoga

Traditional Tantric practices of India

T

antra is a spiritual path that embraces life in order to awaken consciousness. Within Tantra Yoga various techniques including the use of mantra, yantra, ritual and meditation are used to purify and energise our being therefore moving us in the direction of true spiritual awakening.  Tantra cultivates a devotional approach to the practice, emphasizing the worship of the Goddess, Shakti and her consort Shiva. As we go deeper into the practice we ultimately experience the divine union of these masculine and feminine attributes

Tantra can be defined as an energetic approach and presents a yogic science for arousing Kundalini which is the divine energy that often lays dormant in the human being.  This energy is necessary for the transformation of consciousness. Kundalini is a form of the Goddess and is acknowledged and respected as her power.

Yogini Devi teaches aspects from both the left and right hand tantra so that its practices follow respectable disciplines and at the same time allows freedom for spontaneous flow and going beyond the mind. We also hold devotional fire ceremonies to empower the use of mantra and uses various meditation & sacred dance techniques.

Many of the teachings originate from Guru Ji Raj Kumar who’s tradition is based on the traditional forms of tantric practices from India. Many elements of kundalini yoga and tantra are also taught through Agama yoga classes.

 

‘Tantra loves, and loves unconditionally. It never says no to anything whatsoever, because everything is part of the whole, and everything has its own place in the whole, and the whole cannot exist with anything missing from it.’ Osho
