More About Urban Tantra
Urban Tantra teaches unique breathing techniques, and sees BDSM as a way to expand the Tantric practice. By extension, Urban Tantra is also believed to enrich a BDSM practice and, by extension, participants' lives. According to Carellas' website, "on the Tantric path, pleasure, vision and ecstasy are celebrated. Tantra is not only a sexual practice, it also is a sensuous way of life and path to spiritual growth."
