Hatha Yoga is tantric practice. While Vedantic Brahmans - the caretakers and contemporary proponents of Yoga - borrowed tantric practices to develop their religious aspirations to transcend this world, they denied the essential purpose of Yoga to link the mind to the wonder of our own condition.
Tantric traditions also confused Yoga with religion in their attempt to conquer nature or to go 'beyond'. Meanwhile, the idea of 'tantric sex' has become popular without its context and catalyst - an actual yoga practice designed for each person.
Mark Whitwell puts a spotlight on these issues to restore and efficient and complete Yoga for everybody.
