3. Tantra Yoga

The philosophy of the Tantric Teachings, namely Tantric Shivism, is largely misunderstood and misrepresented in the world today. But these teachings give us a powerful access point to the understanding and development of our modern yoga practice. In fact, the tantric teachings are at the very root of what we now call Hatha yoga.
These teachings are profoundly accessible to the modern yogi as we each have the same technology the ancients used to uncover their true nature and their profound connection to all of life; the human form.
We will explore the key teachings of the Shiva Sutra and The Nataraj (the dancing Shiva) to reveal how we, as human beings, are a contracted form (or expression of), the one infinite and divine consciousness.
