White Tantra Yoga for Sexual Potency
Position to Open Sex Chakra
The last yoga pose we added to our free Online Hatha Yoga Poses book, Crane Pose, required considerable balance and strength to do, and today’s addition is similar in that it requires a great deal of balance as well, but unlike Crane pose, this one needs flexibility more than strength. It is the scary looking White Tantra Yoga Lotus Pose , and as I mentioned, since we are now adding some more advanced postures to our collection, please follow the safety guidelines from the following 2 articles carefully when practicing these postures.
Kundalini Yoga, is also known as White Tantra Yoga, and as I have previously pointed out, sexual energy is the most condensed form of physical energy and, if correctly channeled, it can play an important role in one’s personal and spiritual evolution. There are many tantric exercises which help you harness your sexual potency, and for a complete set of such exercises, you can refer to the Tantric Yoga Exercises for Sexual Health article. For those interested in the refinement and transmutation of sexual energy for higher purposes, the pose today will be of particular interest. This is because Kundalini Yoga Lotus Pose, is designed specifically for this purpose.
There are other benefits of Lotus Pose, in addition to the channeling of sexual energy, and those are listed below in the practice section as well. Since this position requires quite a bit of flexibility to do, it should not be attempted before doing sufficient warm-ups and stretches. In particular the hamstrings and groin should be stretched and warmed up prior to trying Lotus Pose.
Lotus Pose will focus on opening and balancing your Sex Chakra (Swadhisthan Chakra), and as with all Tantric exercises, your mind can help magnify the benefits of the exercise. For this reason you should concentrate your awareness upon the Sex Chakra while doing this pose and can visualize energy rising up the spine from this region while you practice the position. The following three articles will be useful in helping you understand more about the Sex Chakra and how to add a chakra meditation component to this exercise.
In addition to being added to the Free Online Hatha Yoga Book, Lotus Pose will of course become part of the Online Kundalini Yoga Exercises e-book. Also, be on the lookout for more Free Tantra Yoga Classes which are going to use Lotus Pose in the very near future.
