Tantra, in brief, means expanded consciousness, or awareness; yoga, which is derived from the root word yog, means unity with the supreme, with the divine. “Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, defines yoga as “the stilling of the changing states of the mind.” The practice of Tantra Yoga, through asanas, meditation, and breath work, helps bring mind, body, and soul into alignment in the present moment. Tantra is not an academic philosophy, but a life practice. One learns how to achieve harmony within one’s body; the body is as expression of the soul, not just a physical shell. Through the practice of yoga, one can attain self-realization or the merging of the individual consciousness with the universal consciousness.
Tantra deals with the self, preceding the identity of male, female, or race and geographical location. Tantrics teach how to relinquish all limitations in the identity and help one express as a wholesome self.
In this practice, one experiences the feminine and masculine energy through the many layers of the body. Example, understanding the functions and connections between the left and right hemispheres of the brain by looking through the physical body, and the many layers that make up the physical vehicle, like emotional, mental, and astral bodies, and everything else in between. Moreover, one becomes aware of the inner works of the body and learns how to work from the inside – out to relax the muscles and the self.
