A Journey to Tantric Meditation at Matsya Yoga - Vienna
Tantra yoga is often misunderstood in the West and is often seen as a conglomeration of sexualized spiritual practices. In reality, traditional tantra yoga is a path that seeks to encompass the whole person and turn every experience into a moment of self-realization.
In this training, we will explore the history and philosophy of tantra, we will study and practice the Meditations of the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, and delve into the incredible beauty of this knowledge. This course is a special opportunity for advanced practitioners and is eligible for 30 hours of YOGA ALLIANCE YACEP continuing education.
