What is Tantra Breathing
Kundalini Tantra Yoga does not try to suppress sexual energy, but to raise it so that the sexual power can be utilized for nourishing the higher centers known as chakras. There are many Kundalini Tantra Yoga Kriya breathing exercises and meditations to help raise and channel human sexual energy.
In Kundalini Tantra Yoga the sexual act serves not only to stimulate and intensify sexual arousal in order to achieve high erotic states, but most importantly, sex serves to achieve and experience different states of consciousness. Breathing is very important during sexual intercourse. It connects power centers (chakras-s) and stimulates its activity. The Prana transmitted by the breath causes the body to be alive, the heart is open, the mind is calm and the sexual energy flows freely along the column towards Sahashrara.
Short, incomplete breathing has a type of internal contraction that blocks feelings and emotions and the mind becomes difficult to control.
Types of Tantra Breathing
There are two basic types of breathing:
1) Breathing rhythmically through the nose
Reduces the tensions of the parasympathetic nervous system and induces the state of introspection, and reaches one to a meditative state. It also slows down the metabolism.
In yoga (pranayama) and Tantra, it is used to control sexual energy. The Hara and Ajna chakras are awakened by deep rhythmic breathing. The slower it is, the more effective it becomes.
2) Breathing explosively through the mouth
This eliminates the stress in the sympathetic nervous system. It also plays a role in the expression of feelings. You cannot feel with your mouth open – try crying with your mouth wide apart.
It accelerates the metabolic rate and generates an external and explosive orgasm. This breathing relaxes Manipura, open the Anahata and Visuddha chakras. The faster it is, the more effective it is.
In general, when the respiratory rate slows down, the creature receives more vital energy (prana); when it accelerates, it emits more life energy. Deep and conscious breathing leads to a better correlation between body and mind.
Tantra Breathing and sex
Of the many requirements and preconditions for practising sexual Tantra, the most important are the following two:
- A suitable partner: The most important thing to practice this branch of Tantra is to have a loving and optimistic partner. Sexual tantra is not just sex, even if you do it often. It is about examining this communion between masculine (Shiva) and feminine (Shakti) manifestations for greater realization. In other words, from One there originated two and in Sexual Tantra, through sex, Shiva and Shakti combine to return to One.
- Sexual control: If you want to explore sexual Tantra, you must learn to be master your sexual desire. During sexual intercourse, when the excitement reaches the maximum in a man and approaches orgasm, he should start doing Kapalbhati. In particular, he should exhale the air forcefully, while pulling the abdominal muscles with each exhalation. As in Kapalbhati, allow the stomach to relax for the next inhalation to occur. This rapid swelling of the air through the mouth increases oxygen content and thereby changes the chemistry of the blood and delays ejaculation, by prohibiting the flow of blood to the male genitalia.
