Tantra is a combination of two Sanskrit words roughly meaning "essence of essence". The system's underlying principle is that we are infinite spiritual beings and not finite physical organisms made up of independent parts. All of our systems (nervous, muscular, hormonal, etc.) are interrelated and compliment each other and so does each Āsana in this yoga system. Overtime this yoga system will build external strength, as well as balance your internal systems (digestion, hormones, etc.). The class is open to beginners and advanced students alike.
