"Neo-tantra" is a term coined recently to distinguish
between traditional Asian tantra yoga and modern syncretic
techniques for spiritual sexuality being taught in "workshops"
and through periodicals and books in Europe and the
Americas. Neo-tantra typically makes use of the
traditional tantra yoga asanas (positions), breath
control, and meditation, but it is taught outside the
framework of Hindu culture and religion. It differs from
karezza in that its emphasis is not so openly eclectic and
mystical. Unique to neo-tantra is a modern or New Age
tendency to include massage (so-called "tantric massage"),
Reichian body-work (e.g. "bio-energetics"), and even
counselling (e.g. "sexual healing") to the course of study.
Some prominent neo-tantra teachers (all of whom,
regrettably, claim they are teaching tantra yoga) are
Lori Grace, Margo Anand, and the Muirs.
