Health, Healing, and Happiness
Sacred Garden of Tantra
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 glamor 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.
She been practicing as well as teaching and sharing Tantra Yoga for 30 years, as she thrives on continuous education from a variety of Tantra & yoga disciplines and sources. Her Classic Tantra teaching technique is deeply rooted in classic Hatha Yoga blended with a knowledge of Vedanta, Ayurveda and teachings from various Indian yoga masters, including ... Yoga Master Swami Niranjan, Swami Muktananda, Bihar school of Yoga, Kaivalya Yoga Rishikesh, Sri Rudra Gawda (Right hand of Sri BKS Iyengar, Tantra hermit baba vyas Gular, Rishikesh, Tantra master ma Gyaan Devi.
In her workshops and classes, she helps her students experience a deeper connection to themselves and everything around them. Through Classic Tantra Yoga, she guides her students to unblock the love that is already present in and around all of us to make our lives and partnerships sweeter, richer, and more intimate.
In her teachings of Classic Tantra Yoga, Rashmi offers practical tools for reprogramming the anxious modern mind and desires. In the classes, students will be guided through poses (asanas), breathing exercises (pranayama), visualization (of yantras and deties), and repetition of a mantras as the way to affect the desired reprogramming. “Classic Tantra Yoga truly helps to unfold our divine nature.”
Besides her classes, workshops and private teachings, she continues to be involved in various Free/Donation based Yoga Classes for Rancho Palos Verdes, San Pedro and Orange County California communities

In the Sacred Garden of Tantra, we help people discover how to enhance their happiness, improve their health, and develop a holestic life style that brings healing in their lives in the areas of personal 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.
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 bodymind 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 conditionings and illusions.
Tantra is NOT just for couples only!
Why wait for a partner or soul mate to show up when you can begin Now to heighten your Kundalini (energy), raise your vibrations and attract more and right kind of Love in your life?
We will tap in our creative Shakti energy, which is lying dormant in our base chakra (Mool Dhara chakra), open our chakras and expand our awareness throughout all layers of our consciousness.
We use simple and easy to understand tools to raise our dormant sexual energy (Prana), like movement, breath, visualization and sound. You will experience an expansion of your heart and an opening to bliss/ecstasy known as the "heart space/heart fire." Step by step I will be there to hold your hand to unlock the keys for your body to have orgasmic responses.
Following, we will play in the hearts pace with eye gazing, connective experiences, non-sexual connection and touch and dance to celebrate the divinity in all of us.
(PS: There are NO SEXUAL CONTACTS in my class and NO NUDITY INVOLVED).
Its a very safe and sacred environment for you to truly connect with yourself and unblock all the love within you and around you.
Do you ever feel like you are always ending up with same person, with different names in relationships?
If answer is Yes, then let me help you changing your pattern of negativity and falling in same situation again and finally attracting the right kind of love and energy in your life.
In my public as well as private classes, learn with me to raise your vibration and creative sexual energy to attract more Love in your Life.
This class is ideal for those who desire to raise the vibrational level of the people who are drawn to them as well as to increase the number of quality people approaching them on a regular basis. We will utilize simple postures, breath, movement, and guided imagination mediatations to raise our Kundalini Energy (sexual/spiritual energy that runs up our spines), balance and harmonize our Chakras and energetically attune ourselves to a greater ability to give and receive Love.
People are naturally drawn to those they perceive as sensual, open and loving... learn to fine-tune these aspects of yourself and see how much fun it is to easily draw in the Love of your life.

Significance of Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra:
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.
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 practises 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 practise 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 optimise 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.
You are Awesome! LET'S KEEP IN TOUCH
And while that part may need to get expressed in a number of ways, I'll bet in its purest form its tied to your life force energy (sexuality).
Turning down your sexuality not only kills your full potential for your creativity in work, its also related to mood swings, depression, weight gain, low self esteem..lack of interest in bedroom, hormonal imbalance, hot flashes etc..
Sexual energy is completely natural. And yes you can use it to revitalize yourself again! It is everywhere, creating and sustaining life. It's meant to run through us like electricity runs through a light bulb. And yet, with all of this power at our fingertips, we get very little guidance about how to access it and what to do with it when we do.
Wouldn't it be great to know how to let it flow in a way that is healthy, and not only serves us, but the people we come into contact with as well?
We all know about physical fitness with help of Yoga, Gym, Running, Pilates or Cross Fitness but still feel this disconnect or void with what truly makes us fulfilled and happy!
That's why I'm passionate about sharing information and practices that allow us the connect with our sexual energy as an extension of our spirits. When we learn how to let our sexual energy flow, as it is meant to in nature... It revitalizes us, and makes us radiant and magnetic.
