So usually we get the query, “What’s Tantra Yoga?” Some could comprehend it because the “yoga of intercourse” or the “attractive yoga” and consider it primarily as a approach to obtain higher orgasms.
After which there’s the type of Yoga we have now change into so aware of within the West, which has a studio at virtually each road nook of our trendy cities. We present as much as a yoga studio, lay down our mat and observe our poses. That is yoga, proper? Sure, however that is only one type of yoga known as “Hatha” yoga.
What is the “energetic physique?” You possibly can have a look at it this manner: All matter is made up of vitality frequency, as now confirmed by Quantum Physics. This contains our physique. Life drive vitality is operating by way of us human beings always from the second we’re conceived to the time we die. Life drive vitality is understood by totally different names in numerous cultures, like Chi in Chinese language, Kundalini in Sanskrit, Reiki in Japanese, or The Drive like in Star Wars. Life drive and sexual vitality are the identical. It is the vitality that introduced us into this world. More often than not life drive sexual vitality reveals up in refined states after which at occasions in aroused states. Tantric yoga permits to develop consciousness of our life drive vitality and the way it manifests in us on bodily, emotional and psychological ranges.
To entry energetic consciousness we draw on the Chakra system of seven main vitality facilities within the physique. Every Chakra is related to a special approach of sensing, feeling and reflecting. For instance, the guts Chakra, situated in the course of the chest between the breasts, is related to love and compassion, and the power to attach with different individuals. That is seen when an individual expresses love for one thing or somebody and locations their hand on their coronary heart. Everyone knows this expertise. If the guts Chakra is out of steadiness and constricted, we could really feel closed off to…ourselves or from one other. Different Chakras produce other impacts and all are equally essential.
Connecting with our vitality facilities we will begin to clear blocks of emotional, bodily or non secular nature so we could also be residing life to the fullest. These blocks don’t simply exist within the thoughts, they’re held within the physique. We glance to the Chakras to see the place we’re out of steadiness. By way of breath work, motion, meditation, and emotional and bodily launch processes, an individual can clear these blocks and expertise larger pleasure and aliveness of their life. What additionally finally ends up occurring is the physique begins “working” higher, vitality begins to stream extra simply and we really feel extra awake and change into bodily properly.
That is additionally the first goal of Hatha yoga – to permit one’s vitality to stream extra simply. Alignment is the primary focus of any Hatha yoga class. The poses (a.okay.a. “Asanas”) have been designed to get an individual’s physique into optimum alignment. And never only for the sake of higher posture; every pose has an lively element behind it. For instance, Virabhadrasana I (Warrior I) is nice bodily for constructing power within the quadriceps and gluteus but in addition energetically cultivates extra braveness and power to face life’s challenges.
Tantra and Hatha yoga, subsequently, begin feeding into one another. For instance, if an individual is working towards a whole lot of Tantra they could discover that their asana observe tremendously improves. It is because as their vitality runs higher, their physique naturally goes in direction of optimum alignment. Conversely, if an individual is primarily a Hatha yoga practitioner, their physique will begin to launch emotional blocks as they work on their alignment. This is the reason not everybody feels at peace or pleased throughout a yoga class. As we begin to breathe and stretch into our our bodies, previous feelings begin to come up.
