Rashmi’s thirst for yoga, spirituality and a healthy lifestyle runs in her veins as she comes from a privileged Eastern Indian family founded on a disciplined Vedic upbringing. The childhood was richly seasoned with her maternal grandparents’ inspiration to find her spiritual core, introducing her to YOGA & TANTRA at the very tender age of 3.
For many years, Rashmi enjoyed a successful career in glamour and media, but her heart ached to find her true purpose and sense of being in this universe and to serve and spread the love and passion she always felt towards Shakti and Shiva, the divine union of ultimate power, nature and pure consciousness. It was the practice of Tantra, under guidance of her ishta devi Shakti, under guidance of her grand mother (a practicing tantric) that she found her purpose. Through this she discovered her passion in life - to heal and help people on a holistic level and bring them health, happiness, harmony and healing in their lives with their own being, purpose, relationships, and sexuality.

We teach how to develop deep grounding with simplicity in your own life hence inspire and bring a sense of pure joy and happiness with help of various ancient Yogic practices and Tantric teachings.
What TANTRA offers, to the average person?
A chance to experience a deeper connection to ourselves and each other. A way to unblock the love that is in us and around us to make our lives and partnerships sweeter, intimate and richer.
Tantra Yoga asserts that desires are natural and that as long as we are embodied, we will have them. Our sense organs serve as windows through which desires enter. The constant presence of desire arouses a yearning and love for the desired object. Most desires center on the physical body and its comforts. People become slaves to their instincts, which constitute the lower part of the personality and fall prey to agitation, loneliness, anxiety, dissatisfaction, selfishness and misery. Tantra Yoga offers practical tools for reprogramming the mind and our desires. By means of physical and ritual cleaning, breathing exercises (pranayama), contemplation, visualization ( of yantras and deties), repetition of a mantras. Tantra Yoga helps to unfold our divine nature.
Tantra Yoga āsanas, as well as all Tantra teachings, are essentially taken from the Rig Veda. Precisely derived, these āsanas balance prāṇa (your innate life force energy), and the very essence that gives life to all living creatures, also known as coiled dormant sexual energy. By balancing prāṇa, you develop an awareness of inner and outer blockages and with help of Tantra they are eliminated.
Tantra views the body and mind as a continuum of one and the same thing, the ‘bodymind’, not two separate discrete parts. Ultimately, what you do to your body, you do to your mind and vice versa. Your physical/outer body health is reflection of your inner self/body.
Tantra Yoga āsana is thus a moving meditation that enables the body-mind to relax enough to release fears (physical, psychological, emotional, etc), so that eventually, you liberate everything that is covering up your true nature, enabling your true self to blossom from beneath the conditioned self.
Traditional Tantra Yoga offers a holistic approach that provides practices for your whole self (not just the physical), so that you can experience, enrich and express yourself to your full potential. In order to express your natural potential, Tantra teaches you to trust in and live by your true self (not the small limited, conditioned self), enabling you to release all limiting conditioning and illusions.

TRADITIONAL TANTRA YOGA VS NEO TANTRA
Traditional Tantra Yoga vs Neo/Western Tantra
I feel it's important to make the distinction between traditional Tantra Yoga and Neo/Western Tantra.
When most people hear the word 'Tantra' these days, they generally associate it with the modern day expression of Tantra related to sexuality only, commonly referred to as Neo/Western Tantra or well disguised services from sex workers in name of "Tantra".
Traditional Tantra Yoga is very different from Neo Tantric practice.
Neo Tantra tends to focus solely on exercises and processes related to the lower one or two chakras. These practices are usually limited to improving sexual and intimate relationships. The exercises and processes are geared purely towards sexual activity, better intimacy and the benefits that arise from increased awareness in these areas. Teachers/therapists are more massage healing service oriented instead of Yoga teaching (Postures, conscious breathing, meditation, etc.)
Traditional Tantra Yoga focuses on āsana as a baseline practice from which to build a holistic awareness of our own being through balancing and integrating all seven chakras, instead of only two. Traditional Tantra yoga encapsulates processes for the whole being, not just parts. The result is a much more rounded expression of self, as well as a more integrated understanding of the whole. Traditional Tantra Yoga teaches us the reintegration of the whole, and highlights life from a wholesome perspective. Teachers are actual Yoga practitioners and follow yogic life style.
When one is fully balanced and integrated from the inside out, there is no need to engage in practices or processes that focus solely on 'fixing' one particular, or limited aspect of our being, ie sexuality only. When one is expressing from one's true nature, that is, pure divine consciousness, then one's sexuality is a spontaneous and natural expression of their wholeness.
This is not to say that those who practice traditional Tantra Yoga don't place an important emphasis on their sexuality, quite the contrary. Tantra teaches the enhancement of sexuality from this wholesome sense so as to optimize living. Most everyday religion ignores or actively represses sexuality. This repressed sexuality can cause anomalies in life (cf. Sigmund Freud). Many students come to Neo Tantra to learn techniques to cover up for a perceived sexual inadequacy.
Genuine Tantra yoga addresses sexuality as sacred, a way that leads one to salvation, (mokṣa). Therefore, Tantrics are serious about their sexuality and their relationships. Indeed, sexuality is not a merely physical act to a Tantric. It is the basis of their spiritual science. However, in Traditional Tantra Yoga, these are not mere techniques that focus on the lower chakras, but integrated processes of a much more advanced nature which can take years and a traditional initiation for one to master. First, a foundation must be laid which balances the entire being.
Traditional Tantra Yoga āsana provides that foundation, and that is what I offer in my classes and workshops.

The Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra
The following Maha Mrityunjay Mantra has been taken from the Sukla Yajurveda Samhita III. 60. The Mantra is addressed to Lord Shiva and is a centuries old technique of connecting one to pure consciousness and bliss.
Significance of Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra:
Devotees strongly believe that proper recitation of the Maha Mrityunjaya rejuvenates, bestows health, wealth, long life, peace, prosperity and contentment. It is said that chanting of Shiva Mantra generates divine vibrations that ward off all the negative and evil forces and creates a powerful protective shield. Besides, it is said to protect the one who chants against accidents and misfortunes of every kind. Recitation of the mantra creates vibration that pulsates through every cell, every molecule of human body and tears away the veil of ignorance. Hindus believe that recitation of the mantra ignites a fire within that consumes all negativity and purifies entire system. It is also said to have a strong healing power and can cure diseases declared incurable even by the doctors. Many believe Maha Mrityunjay Mantra to be a mantra that can conquer death and connect human beings to their own inner divinity.

As an experienced Tantra teacher will tell you, Tantra meditation is not the same as yoga meditation. Though certain recent formats of yoga meditation (Kundalini yoga, chakra balancing etc.) do have aspects of Tantra meditation within them, the fact is that these two disciplines derive from different philosophies that happen to have certain areas of overlap.
Tantra meditation involves the utterance of tantra mantras (or sacred chants), Tantra postures ,Tantra breathing and reverend introspection and reflection. However, it does not, as a rule, require the practitioner to have sex. Rather, the intention is to find that space of utter non-thinking that is invariably attained during the final stages of the sexual act (Tantra level 3 & 4) and ensuing orgasm. The mind is neither willing nor able to hold on to any thoughts at this decisive time of sexual ecstasy. Likewise, the objective of Tantra meditation is to reach and maintain this state.
Tantra meditation can be practiced alone, or in an adequately guided tantra for couples meditation session. It is generally advisable to practice it in a group setting, since this allows for a greater build-up of synergistic Tantra energy
Under the guidance of a qualified Tantra master, the full power of Tantra meditation is unleashed and set to work in the student. It opens up a direct channel for Tantra energy to flow, thereby driving out all stress, worry and tension from the mind and body. As a result, the student can experience oneness with the cosmic forces that created, sustain and empower a life nourished by the ancient art of Tantra.
Within each of us - specifically, in the region of the spine's tail bone - lies a core of energy that waits to unfold and transform us. The idea behind Tantra meditation is to allow this energy to ascend through the various centers of power - the Tantra chakras - and reach the crown chakra. It must be stressed here that this is primeval energy, which is in its unformed state. Though it is powerful, it can also do harm if allowed to flow without proper tutelage. In other words, Tantra meditation should not be practiced without the supervision and instructions of an experienced Tantra master. Under the right conditions, it can be a life-changing experience.
An authentic Tantra master/teacher can teach you to harness and utilize the energy generated during such a meditation session to vastly improve your sex life, interpersonal relationships and ability to address the various stresses and challenges of modern life. Tantra practice is therefore incomplete without a good working acquaintance with the techniques involved in this powerful form of meditation.
Do not seek shortcuts to finding and using the power of Tantra meditation - rather, allow your Tantra teacher to guide you every step of the way - and witness yourself begin to overflow with power, confidence and an unbelievable joy of life and living....
WHAT IS THE BIG MYSTERY TANTRA?
Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. - Rumi
The word Tantra comes from word " Tantrika Tantra" in Sanskrit language, which means "The Nervous system" . Tantra is the nervous system of YOGA and yogic body. In tantra practice, with the help of asanas/postures, mantra/chanting and meditation, a tantra yogi concentrates on expanding all levels of her or his consciousness to unveil and become aware of “Supreme Reality,” Shakti, or the “Cosmic Mother” that resides in each one of us. The Tantric practice, celebrates and honors what is natural, seeking to unite all dualities in one’s own being---shiva and Shakti, male and female, Ying and yang, cultivating reverence for your highest self in order to awaken the divine.
Tantra acknowledges the eight limbs of yoga as outlined by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras which is the base of all Yoga.
In Tantra, we strive to attune ourselves with Shakti, this dynamic, spiritual energy which is coiled hidden in each of us humans Base Chakra in order to transform personal limitations and release subconscious blockages. True tantra is a pure path, and treats sexuality as a sacred creative life force to be transmuted into higher channels. As humans, our emotions are various cosmic energies limited, broken up and influenced by patterns of attachment, and tantra is the also the alchemy of transmuting human emotions into divine energy, the transformation from sleeping to “wakefulness,” the movement toward true consciousness, one’s acknowledgment of deleterious patterns in order to change them and rise above them.
