Tantra is That is.
"Tantra is for someone who practices all the paths because all the paths encompass Tantra." - Frederick Lenz
In Sanskrit, Tantra means "to weave.” Tantra allows us to braid threads of movement (dynamic postures), mantra (sound expression), pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation (relaxed, single-pointed focus) to explore the inner U-niverse. Self-study, or “svādhyāya” in Sanskrit, is a central theme of the practice.
The practice arose in the first century out of a need to craft a yoga for all ways of Being. Early practitioners directly opposed the notion that a certain caste of people were entirely cast out from a spiritual path (Yoga Journal). Turning focus inward allows us to discover the world as We are, and empowers each individual to discover and re-discover the multidimensional Being that Is.
This path of yoga is a powerful way to cultivate whole body health and radical awareness. The lasting results of your Presence in individual classes will have a cumulative effect, and consistent practice will automatically expand abundance, attractiveness and concentration.
The Tantra class offered at Gilbert Yoga with Heather Promise is accessible and fun for all levels of humanness.

Try Eye/I Gazing!
-Find a willing participant (a friend, coworker, elder, stranger, etc.) and sit across from each other.
-With a relaxed gaze, maintain eye contact for as long as thirty seconds to infinity.
*If there is no One around, try it with yourself in a mirror….same difference! :)
Listen to what wells up from within You during this practice.
Eye gazing cultivates a practice of intimacy, trust, and well-being.
