Alexandra Roxo – RADICAL AWAKENINGS
The Tantric Arts Collective is an experiential endeavor and inclusive space grounded in basic principles of tantric and yogic philosophy. Our mission is to offer a space for any practitioner to come and enrich, empower, and embody their own experience.We work with the esoteric Shakta Tantra branch and yoga as codified by Patanjali, but we also integrate other holistic and creative modalities.
At the core of The Tantric Arts Collective is the desire to embody our own wisdom, sovereignty, and lived experience. We believe that the permission to radically embody one’s experience, come to know one’s own truth, and share this knowing in inclusive, dynamic spaces of mutual honoring and celebration is at the core of tantra.

The Tantric Arts Collective rejects colonized understandings of knowledge which state that a supreme authority contains information and thereby reserves the right to bestow knowing in the form of credentials and permissions. While we respect that guru-parampara, shakti-pat, and lineage are crucial containers for the process of transformation, we also acknowledge that these spiritual concepts have been extracted from their proper contexts, as evidenced by the vast amount of spiritual, sexual, and emotional abuse which has occurred within the yoga community.
We offer an alternative to dogmatic, masculine-centered yogic traditions. The Tantric Arts Collective is a safe, inspiring container to experience your own connected knowing. Our classes incorporate story medicine, creative modalities, meditation, mantra & classical Sanskrit chanting, and therapeutics-informed ashtanga yoga.
We offer these practices in a deeply collaborative, non-dogmatic manner. Our community is post-lineage, a term defined by Theo Wildcroft in the following way:
“Post-lineage yoga moves beyond a single lineage or teacher as the sole authority for yoga, and turns instead to peer networks and sanghas to decide the practice. It overlaps with both commodified, secular yoga and the yoga of lineage.”
With this definition in mind, we like to consider our classes and sessions as offerings rather than teachings. We offer invitations, wonderings, choices, and experiences rather than prescriptions, explicit instructions, and strict structures. Our mission is to support your sovereignty and connection to yourself by encouraging you to integrate, participate, and synthesize what feels right for you.
We collectively work together to enter the domain of our own wisdom through Shakta Tantra practices and principles. We believe our medicine, gold, and divinity lies in this deep-dive, and that group work is necessary for the deep-dive to maintain vital sustenance.
