Women's Tantra: The Intimate Embrace Of Shiva & Shakti
An exploration into the authentic meaning of Tantra through Yoga asana. The Divine Feminine (Shakti) and Masculine (Shiva) are united through the play of Consciousness and Energy within each and every individual Being. In our Yoga practice, we can directly experience this rather than intellectually knowing it and begin to truly integrate that knowledge within the body.
Throughout the class, we will explore the different levels of manifestation within which the yogis call Pancha Maya Kosa and create new pathways of connection to the more subtle layers that can often be ignored. Yet this subtlety and depth is exactly what we are all searching for as therein lies our deep wisdom and blissfulness.
We use the practice of asana (postures) to make these different levels absolutely clear all the way from the physical to the beyond, and start to understand ourselves more deeply. What arises is a greater intimacy and fascination of the totality of who we are and the beautiful realisation that Shiva & Shakti lie within.
Mystical poetry and verses of the ancient text Vijnana Bhairava Tantra are read throughout to inspire and guide us deeper.
