Join Yorkshire Centre for Wellbeing in a Chakra Tantra yoga retreat where you will immerse to an in depth experience of yoga and yoga philosophy with Tantric practices and Tantra philosophy. James, an experienced instructor will teach a synthesis of yoga and Tantra and will show how these two ancient disciplines complement each other and can be approached as a single discipline. Join the retreat and you will have a deeper point of view of Tantra and yoga.
During the retreat, you will be staying in a large, spacious comfortable, and beautifully appointed home, only 5 minutes walk from the renowned Valley Gardens and 10 minutes walk into Harrogate.
There are 3 large shared rooms that can accommodate up to 3 people ( but usually only 2 people per room ) and 2 single rooms on site, with another single room just off site. In the house, there is a large dining room, two lounges, and spacious gardens for guests to enjoy.
This retreat will include philosophical theory and practical tools in Tantra and yoga which will provide the groundwork for powerful transformative practices and transcendental meditative states. James has developed a unique style of yoga based on the Agama / Trika school which uses asanas (postures) to activate the chakras to bring the microcosmic energies of the body into coherence with the universal macrocosmic energies. It is a powerful form of yoga, which works in ascending order through the chakras, leading to higher states of consciousness. Please note that sex Tantra is a miniscule portion of 'Tantra' and will not feature in this retreat. Below are lectures that you will get:
Tantra is one of the most ancient spiritual pathways of India from which yoga was born. ‘Tantra’ means ‘warp’ or ‘extension’ and refers to the infinite energy of divine consciousness which permeates all of life. Tantra recognizes the human body as a microcosmic replica of the macrocosm. Through practices such as yoga and activation of the chakra centers, the latent energies of the body are liberated. As these energies are freed, an expansion of consciousness occurs as one progressively moves towards emergence with Shiva, universal consciousness.
