Tantra says yes to life. It is not a belief or a faith but a way of living and acting. On this path, pleasure, vision, and ecstasy are celebrated rather than repressed. The Tantric path encompasses beauty, sensitivity, and exhilaration through eating, drinking, tasting, smelling, and touching. It embraces and enhances all forms of creative expression such as movement and dance, massage, martial arts, the fine arts, healing, and music. Through experiencing and glorying in the delights of the body, the body becomes a temple in which you experience the sacred. It becomes a doorway to spiritual evolution.

The word Tantra is Sanskrit, the sacred language of Hinduism. It is derived from the root word tan, which translates as “to extend, expand, spread, continue, spin out, weave; to put forth, show, or manifest.” Like the universe we inhabit, Tantra is continually expanding, spreading, and manifesting itself like a “cosmic weave” made up of different energies. We are part of this weave, as are our forefathers and foremothers, all life, and every type of energy and matter. This includes thoughts, actions, and all physical matter.

The following are some concepts that can be realized through the Couples Yoga Class:

  • Love is not about better communication, it’s about connection.
  • You will never attain a closer relationship with your man by talking to him like you talk to one of your girlfriends.
  • Male emotions are like women’s sexuality. You can’t be too direct too quickly.
  • There are four ways to connect with a man: touch, activate, sex, routines.
  • Men want closer relationships just as much as women do. But not if they have to act like women.
  • Talking makes women move closer; it makes men move away.
  • The secret of the silent male is this; his spouse supplies the meaning in his life.
