Tantra is the ancient yogic science of harnessing and directing life force called prana, to cultivate steadfastness, clarity, and ease within to connect to our inner light body and spreading it out as we move through the world.
My offerings are based in Tantra Yoga, in the context of the Sri Vidya tradition of India, one of the oldest schools of Tantra. Sri Vidya can be defined as the "knowledge of that which is most beautiful” or "the science of being", going beyond the physical body to become awakened to the more subtle forces within, the self becomes part of the greater universe. Through Tantra Yoga one is said to be able to ultimately reach a state of eternal bliss, remembering and tasting that which we really are...whole, complete, and fulfilled.
Malaika is passionate about many things, but mostly the ancient science and art of Yoga Nidra. to her Yoga Nidra practice and the state of Yoga Nidra is the most potent form of healing and fulfillment of them all.
