What is Tantra Yoga?

Tantric, or tantra, yoga is a style of practice that incorporates several different types of yoga, and is perhaps the most misunderstood yogic practice among the Western world. Many incorrectly associate tantra yoga with unbridled sexuality, but traditional tantric teachings rarely focus on sex. The practice is based on developing awareness of energy in the body, and there are many ways to incorporate tantric yoga into your life. 


Using mantras, meditation, breath work, asanas and visualizations, tantric yoga works to build energy and move it through the body’s system of chakras. The goal of tantra meditation is to encourage the flow of this energy until it overflows from your being in an achievement of pure enlightenment. In this way, the body becomes a tool for spiritual awakening. Here are a few other things you should know about tantra yoga.
