Did you know that much of Hatha Yoga is rooted in Tantra? Escape for the day into the rich depths of yoga, as we explore philosophy, history, meditation, movement, the sacred breath and our innate connection to the divine. Set in a spacious barn conversion in a 270-acre estate in the idyllic Hampshire countryside, rural Romsey near Southampton.
Yantra, Mantra, Mudra, Mandala, Sushumna, Shakti, Chakra, Kosha these are all Sanskrit words used in Modern Yoga with their roots in Tantra. Learn through intellectual exploration, embodied movement and meditation the true teachings of Tantra and the origins of the yoga you love.
The main goal of many of the tantric practices is to awaken the shakti energy, to awaken one's power within so that the practitioner can reach their true potential, it is radical freedom. A boundless force of life energy that dwells within each of us. Shakti the pulse of creation within all. You are the universe and the universe is you.
Connect to your Divine Feminine nature through exploration of the Tantric Goddesses and learn how to embrace both the light and the shadow side they represent. This day will include two-movement practices, a lecture on the history of Tantra and it's a connection to Hatha Yoga, a walk in the countryside, meditation and a guided Yantra practice.
This day is best suited to people with prior yoga experience and will help you to make connections with the yoga you love and it's ancient lineages. It's time to explore and honour yoga's roots in Tantra.
A day retreat is the perfect chance to get away and make the most of some precious ‘me time’. As we spend the day cacoon in nature reconnecting with ourselves and the nature that surrounds us.
