Tantrum Yoga/sex

The opposite of Tantric
  [vote for,

This is a practice by which one gives in, in a controlled way, to the tantrumic impulse that enters us all during the terrible twos and, for some of us, never leaves. I spend a lot of time, a lot, going unproductively back and forth between the two thoughts, "I want it," and, "I can't have it." In fact I would argue that all of our complex behavior might be binary and could be broken down to these two impulses. Why not make friends with them by trying to express them fully and in a ballenced way.

This yogic practice starts with everyone thinking of something that they want but can't have, and having a tantrum about it, rocking their bodies back and forth between the two extremes of wanting and not being able to have. And then slowly the subjects will bring the behavior under control until it is a measured vibration in the body, a harmonic that allows the body to extend itself to its limits in consuming energy but also to avoid exhaustion and injury. So this might look like people shaking all over, or like that guy in the Michael Jackson video Beat It who is shaking from head to toe.

I guess you could also use it for sexuality.

Certainly not as torturous as this http://www.bikramyo...out_bikram_yoga.php

       Being a HUGE yoga fan, I think this is better than the Bikram Yoga class that I unknowingly ventured into once. Talk about torture. Whoa.

       // Talk about torture. Whoa.//   

       I note that one of the 26 postures in Bikram yoga is called the "wind-removing pose" so, yes, in a confined space I imagine it would be torturous.

       I quite like this one. My toddler doesn't know what to think though.
