Yoga and Sex
The seduction of Kundalini and Tantra has become synonymous in the Western world with free sex, sexual submission, and sexual debauchery. In addition to Kundalini, ROSS also offers the Tantra training where you can go deeper into the origin. In the eyes of some, sexual pleasure is the only reason to cultivate kundalini. Some people use later Tantrics solely to awaken their kundalini and get more pleasure from sex. Sex is great. It is pleasant, ultimate, and intimate. But it is also only one aspect of a good relationship and of the kundalini process.
Tantric sex is only one part of tantra, a discipline designed to increase self and body-awareness, emotional wellbeing, and physical health. Traditionally, there are two components to tantra: red tantra, a sexual technique which is practiced with a partner, and white tantra, a solo practice of meditation and yoga.
There's still a sexual element to tantric yoga, but it relates to heightening the senses. The goal is to move through your body, reaching a mental release rather than a physical, sexual one.

There are three types of Tantra yoga pertaining to sexuality, two of which are known to the general public. The Red Tantra is according to the Masters of Yoga they say to send energy for sexual purposes. In this form of Tantra yoga, sex is usually recommended or prescribed to promote spiritual development. There is a chance that practitioners convince themselves that they are cultivating their kundalini, but in reality, all are interested in sex. However, sex alone does not lead to intimacy. True intimacy arises when both partners are fully awakened or assist each other in their individual development.
Great yoga practice can lead to great sex - it's that simple. It increases blood flow, improves flexibility and increases your level of mindfulness, which translates into longer love sessions and orgasms that feel bigger and better than ever.
