Tantra Yoga Meditation ClassesCLASSES COMING UP:
Tantra Yoga Meditation: The Bhagavad Gita, 10 week evening class starting on Wed 24 January 2018.
In this evening class we will combine Tantra meditation practice with deep inner enquiry using the philosophical and spiritual guidance of the Bhagavad Gita from the Tantric perspective. The Gita is an classic text of many Indian spiritual traditions, and can be appreciated on many levels from being a philosophical guide to help us understand our place in the universe, a yoga manual, an epic story of a deep friendship and a beautiful song or poem. Here we will approach the text from all of these levels but primarily as a tool to deepen our meditation practice and to help us develop practical and useful insight into the yoga path.
Below is a sample of a few of our previous events, to give you some more ideas of the type of classes on offer in the Tantra Yoga meditation programme. We're continually adding new classes (autumn 2017 classes coming soon!) so contact us if you'd like to be kept up to date.

What is Tantra Yoga Meditation?
Tantra is the yoga of inner transformation, a science of consciousness that uses the interconnection between the body and the mind to help us expand our energy and consciousness, and to effect deep levels of positive transmutation. In helping us access expanded levels of consciousness, the practices naturally open us to the awakened qualities that reside in all of us, such as our awareness, love, compassion, wisdom and joy.
In Tantra meditation practice we work with the breath, mindfulness, visualisation and inner sound.
Tantra yoga dates back several thousand years to the Indus valley civilisation of northern India. From there the methods and philosophy spread and evolved into many streams, and the Tantric teachings are now preserved in many lineages and traditions, from Vajrayana Buddhism, to the Indian yoga philosophies of Kashmir Shaivism and Shri Vidya. Zeenat has been authorised to teach the practices by her teacher, yogini adept Parvathi Nanda Nath Saraswati, lineage holder in the Kashmir Shaivite Kaula Yogini Nath tradition.
All courses are facilitated by Zeenat Cameron, who brings her twenty-five years of varied experience as a meditator, teacher and psychologist to support us in developing and deepening our practice.
