Carla Tara: Tantra Coach
Carla Tara is an internationally-acclaimed teacher of Tantra, who masterfully integrates a variety of tantric approaches with body-oriented psychotherapy. She has studied with Eastern masters Chitrabhanu, Dr. Mishra and Dr. Rajmani, as well as with Western teachers Lori Grace, Margo Anand, and Charles Muir and others. Her background as a yoga teacher, psychotherapist, dancer, and relationship counselor contributes to the strength and creativity of her work as a coach to both individuals and couples.
Carla grew up in a small Catholic village in the Italian Alps, where she connected deeply with the natural beauty around her, and the sensual and spiritual beauty within her. It was there that she had her first experience of divine presence, and felt at one with everything and everyone. She recognized that many people were suffering because of their beliefs that sexuality was sinful and was propelled to embark on her life’s work of helping people correct their beliefs around sensuality and sexuality.
Carla searched the world and studied its religious and philosophical systems to resolve the dichotomy she witnessed in modern culture between sexuality and spirituality. She found the resolution she sought in Tantra - the art of conscious, sensuous living – a lifestyle that honors lovemaking as divine communication.
