Dancing through Astrology

Book Now
Saturday 8th June
2 – 5pm

Tara Yoga Centre and Patricia Martello from Vital Development invite you to this unique workshop that will fuse the ancient wisdom of Astrology with the transforming power of movement and dance.

We will embark on an exploration of your birth chart – an intricate map that unveils the cosmic blueprint of the mission of your life and how to manifest it and peeling back the layers of your chart to reveal the presence and significance of key planets. In Astrology, these planets are connected to the central drives in life, representing impulses to love and connect from Venus, think and communicate from Mercury, or to act and assert yourself from Mars. Through engaging and interactive sessions, you will gain deep insights into the planetary energies and

archetypes that shape your psyche, illuminating the diverse facets of your being. 

Then, fueled by music and guided by expressive movement, journeying inward, we will embody the planetary archetypes as they resonate within. Through the journey of the body, uncover all its aspects, from brilliance to shadow, embracing the full spectrum of your being! Each step in the dance is an invitation to incarnate the purpose of your life, to experience the sacred wisdom that flows from heaven to earth, from the soul to the body. We will open new doors of understanding, revealing the profound messages that await within, and unlock profound healing, connection and transformation along the way.

    Edrisa Mayova

    Edrisa began her spiritual journey in 2016, following an intuition that there is much more to life, and by curiously applying the Tantric and yogic teachings she quickly and profoundly transformed her life. After a year of intense daily practice, Edrisa began to feel a strong desire to help others discover their own spiritual revelations. She has organised spiritual theatre groups, and women’s circles that focused on awakening femininity and the art of initiatic dance. Edrisa is fascinated by the potential each one of us holds within, and she is keen to help others find the spiritual meaning in their life. She enjoys both stepping into the intensity of life and savouring it in all its nuances, as well as retreating into silence in nature, where she can contemplate the essence of creation in its utmost simplicity.

    Podcast – Journeys of Awakening Shakti

    A vital part of a woman becoming her true, authentic self is to embrace the gift of Shakti, and connect with the creative life force inside her being, that is waiting to be activated. For many women there is a moment when the desire to fully awaken becomes powerful and insistent. The question then is, what to do next? Tantra provides many answers, many techniques to support and maintain this awakening, including the opportunity to be in a community of women who are learning to open their hearts and indeed their whole beings, to Shakti; learning to see what is beautiful in others. This perspective is a welcome relief from the pressure to compete, that many girls and women, which forces them to push down or ignore their natural, powerful selves. In this podcast, Tantra teachers Magdalena Hau and Mojdeh Moasser share with student Vivienne Rush the magnificence of awakening Shakti in their own lives.

    Journey of Love series – Part 3: Eroticism

    Book Now
    See below
    Friday 31st May

    Love – one way or another it fuels our life. More than just an emotion, love is the most googled word. Deep down, it always calls us, the life of life. In Tantra, love is described as a path to divinity. But what is love exactly? And why does it seem to be something we only stumble upon by chance, if at all?  

    This series of workshops is dedicated to discovering love in a new way, and learning how to bring it into our lives and relationships. Often we have very little education in the aspects of life that bring the most happiness: from polarity and attraction, to eroticism and the couple relationship.

    These workshops will aim to cover some of the gaps in education, and give the opportunity to delve into both theory and practice, learning more about how to cultivate love in our life

    All workshops are for both singles and couples, and will be a combination of theory and practical exercises. Intimate aspects will be mentioned, but there will be no nudity in the workshops. 

    Part 1
    1st March
    The Joyful Game of Attraction

    In the first part of the series we will explore the game of polarity, how the constant game of the feminine and masculine brings forth the energy of life. By learning how to embody the two poles we gain the energy needed for the journey of love. It also teaches us to nurture and create the playful and sensual romance our soul longs for.

    With teachers Marilena and Foca.

    Part 2
    19th April
    Tantric Couple Relationships

    The second part of the series will be dedicated to the tantric couple relationship; the sanctuary of love, the place in which the lovers meet and together exalt to the heights of heaven, supporting and inspiring one another,  overcoming the known complexities of the dance of love. Learn to consciously embark on the journey of growing into your full potential – together. 

    With teachers Ben and Iulia.

    Part 3
    31st May

    The third and last part will explore the realm of Eros and the nuance of love that unfolds in its sensual form, learning how to shift the inner inclination from sex to Eros, enabling the soul to fully express itself. Learn how to infuse your intimate encounters with the delicious and delicate erotic sense, while learning how a deepened Eroticism becomes a way of an ecstatic life. 

    With teachers Maria and Foca.

    The Universal Principle of Polarity blog post

    Polarity is an expression of universal duality. To better understand polarity, it is necessary to begin from the perspective of the universe as a unit that perpetually generates two poles that mutually co-exist. The idea or plan of the universe unfolding in creation is made possible by the constant, dynamic generation of the pairs of opposites. 

    In Tantra it is said that, “All that exists is a creation of the two complementary principles: masculine and feminine. In Creation, the Supreme becomes Shiva and Shakti, the static and the dynamic aspects of the transcendental Consciousness.”

    Journey of the Soul – Miraculous Entanglement

    1st July – 7th July 2024
    Peak District

    Life is a mysterious schooling system of evolution and growth, with each experience bringing us closer to the essential secret of life – its opportunities to learn. It is only when we step back that we can see the bigger picture, realise the interconnectivity and guiding wisdom that is always present even when life seems the most surprising, challenging or even chaotic. 

    Understanding the governing principles of creation and playing the game of life consciously comes with key attitudes that allow us to unlock the understanding of the lesson in each moment, and to bring forth the beauty of our soul, so that we can make our unique contribution to this world.  

    Join this retreat to connect to your inner compass and your living soul, that will guide your steps on the path of your life, and turn both victories and failures into valuable and enriching lessons. 

    Explore the nature of your soul through in-depth yogic and Tantric methods such as meditation and asana-s. Come for insightful workshops and talks, interactive exercises and beautiful social evenings.  

    This retreat aims to nourish your soul and offer the tools you need for the adventure of life to become truly sublime. 

    The frame of this retreat will be the journey of the soul through different stages
    – from childhood to old age:

    Creativity and the inner child 

    The sublime adventure of life and the game of polarity 

    The meaning of life and assimilating fundamental life lessons 

    Values and principles as a way of aligning ones life 

    Death conclusions and transcendence  

    Why join the Summer Yoga Retreat?

    The Summer Yoga Retreat is a wonderful opportunity for us to all to be together, learn and evolve together in a warm, friendly, nature filled ambiance. 

    Outside the big cities, in the nourishing green just south of the Peak District, we can leave behind the stressors of daily life and offer ourselves a whole week of spiritual nourishment and soul awakening. 

    We have been holding our annual Summer Yoga Retreat in the UK since 2005, and each year it offers many revelations to those who participate. Our teachers all have 10-20 years of experience as practitioners and teachers in Yoga and Tantra, and so will guide you with expertise throughout the retreat.

    We will practise yoga together, meditate, eat, laugh, dance and participate in valuable workshops, seminars and experiences to quench our spiritual existence.

    Tantric Tango

    Book Now
    £130 members, £160 non-members
    Saturday 17th February – Sunday 18th February

    Welcome to an intensive spiritual workshop where art, tango and authentic Tantra meet in a magical embrace. You will be guided by professional Tango dancers and highly-experienced Tantra practitioners, Hridaya and Noelia.

    Tango, the world-renowned dance of polarity has naturally been endowed with innumerable consciousness-awakening principles of the ancient tradition of Tantra. 

    Through Tango you can discover an inner path to the heart, to pure Eros, passion, and different nuances of love in which you offer the best of yourself to the other, and care with tender affection for the other’s joy, happiness and profound fulfilment.

    The aim of the Tantric Tango movement is to use the romantic and elevated energies of Tango as a tool to reach unique states of ecstasy and deepen into the world of Tantra

    What you will discover in this transformational weekend: 
    • Men: how to amplify a harmonious masculinity that fascinates women. And how by loving a wonderful woman, he opens and right away to love the Eternal Feminine. 
    • Women: connect with your archetypal femininity and honour the sacred power of attraction. And how by offering love to a wonderful man, she gives birth right away to a free consciousness.
    • How, regardless of your level of knowledge, dance becomes meditation, revelation, communion. Diving to the point of inner stillness, where you meet yourself and connect authentically with the other.
    • How the movement and bliss in which Tango immerses you, shows what it means to be fully in the present
    • Easier steps, more complicated steps, spectacular artistic movements.
    • How Tango develops empathy, awakens and vibrates the uplifting chords of the soul. 
    • A lucid state of flow in which dancing becomes a love making to music, and to all that exists 
    • Exercises of Tango: Sensory-perception, techniques, amazing Tango choreographies, etc. 
    • Tantric principles of polarity, pure eros, passion, godly attributes, attraction, and more… 
    • How Tango can bring an instantaneous, beneficial state of romantic trance in unison in the couple.


    • Members: £130
    • Non-members: £160  

    N.B. This event will be held between 10am – 8:30pm both days with a lunch break 2 – 3:30pm.

    This event is suitable for both singles and couples.

    Tantric Tango is a door that opens to the soul… Do you want to step inside and dance with the universe?

    Meet the teachers


    Tantra Tango instructor, actor, dance performer in the artistic group ArtExtasia. Hridaya was born in Argentina, the motherland of Tango.  

    He graduated from the University of Tango in Buenos Aires in 2002. Along with his irresistible Latin charisma has danced and taught Tango magic worldwide for more than a decade. 

    Inspired by the manifestation of the soul of his nation, the Tango, Hridaya initiated steps into the world of Tantra. Since 2011 he dedicated his life to the deep study of Tantra, and lives his life according to the principles and values of this transforming spiritual path. Since becoming part of ArtExtasia in 2013, he investigated the mystical amorous fusion that shines passionately between Tango and Tantra. 


    Maria Noelia Falco, an Argentinian model, actress and practitioner of the Tantric path, began as the leading actress in the movies Continuamente Amando and The Faces of the Great Goddess. Because of her intense aspiration for self-knowledge and great interest in mysticism, spirituality and art, Maria immersed herself in the practice of Yoga, Tantra and Esoteric Tantric Art. She discovered how Tango perfectly expresses some of the universal principles described in Tantra, and how their magical fusion empowers the game of polarity in couple relationships. 

    On stage, she dances in the performances of the artistic group ArtExtasia. She is also a part of a team of teachers that holds workshops on esoteric Tantric art and sacred women´s circles. 

    She integrates her spiritual experiences and complete dedication to art and Tantra in her work.

    Erotic (R)Evolution

    The Erotic (R)evolution Tantra festival is dedicated to offering participants a new perspective, an invitation to whole new worlds of sublime eroticism, love, and depths of intimacy.  

    Eroticism is radically different from sexuality. Eroticism is an impetus of the soul towards the highest reaches of paradisiacal realms! When it is integrated fully, Eros brings sacredness to the profane, triggering a transformation withinan evolution of consciousness

    Over the weekend of 24-26th November 2023, through workshops, talks, special yoga practice, performances, dance and meaningful connections, we will all step into the world of Eros, and together discover the vastness of the beauty within our soul.  

    So join the Erotic (R)evolution, as only the revolution of Love will bring no harm, and the only way to transform the world for the better is a shift in consciousness, through our inner evolution.

    Tara is hosting this event in collaboration with Tantra Festivals UK. Find out more about them here.
