Decoding the Yantra


In this workshop, we explore –

  • Drawing Yantras
  • Sacred symbology of the Yantra 
  • Sacred Architecture and Spaces
  • Grammar of the Yantra

A ‘yantra’ is a geometric design, used since ancient times for contemplation, concentration and meditation. The word means instrument or machine, and is derived from the Sanskrit ‘yam’, meaning to support, and ‘tra’, meaning expansion.

Making a Yantra can leave one feeling centred, calm and connected. This practise activates both hemispheres of the brain and is a tool for concentration and meditation practice.
