What is Acro Yoga?
The acrobatic yoga conditioning component of the retreat is a fun, active and social practice to do something outside of your comfort zone and build trust.

What is Tantra?
Tantra is not well understood in the western world, but is a key to healthy living and awareness that can transform you into the person you were meant to be!
The Sanskrit word Tantra is related to the concept of weaving and expansion.
Tantra takes the approach that one should not only not reject the body and its desires, but actually embrace them on the road to enlightenment.
Its practice allows a true connection of the body, mind and soul.
Having this connection of our heart and spirit within ourselves can make all the difference in intimacy, relationships, and throughout every moment of life.
With our introductory workshops, you will begin the journey of learning how to get out of your head, connect to your body and awaken your senses.
You will learn how to become more aware of what is it that your body desires so you can start overcoming your psychological blocks to having better intimacy.
Classes are taught in a "lecture style" but incorporate breathing exercises, movements, personal reflections/ workshops as prompted (identifying your intimacy roadblocks), meditations and much more.
So nothing scary! Single and couples are welcome and all classes is fully clothed as the only practical exercises will be breathing techniques and meditations.
Safety and integrity are of the utmost importance to us!
Tantra is a 5,000-year-old practice that uses various mind-body-energy practices to solidify the connection and intimacy between partners which often leads to intense and transcendental orgasms.
Here’s how it is different than our modern model of relationship and intimacy.
1. While the modern model focuses solely on physical attraction and intimacy, the Tantra model emphasizes psychological and energetic bonding in addition to the physical.
2. The Tantra model is a way of merging between two souls with no goals, whereas the modern sex and relationships look for an outcome like climax or satisfaction.
3. Tantra considers the external reality to be a manifestation of your internal desires. A tantric relationship is a journey to your own soul and to the soul of your partner.
More importantly, Tantra’s capability to go beyond everything our past experiences, our society, our culture and our religions have conditioned us to believe sex and relationships to be.
The Course Integrates Mind, Body & Energy
The primary goal of Tantra is the unconditional merging of two partners. This workshop is not “how-to” manual.
It’s an initiation into the world of sensuality and sexual energy. It’s a journey to overcome some blocks you may have about sex and intimacy to ignite the sexual spark for deeper pleasure and ecstasy.
