“If you ever thought Tantra wasn't for you—too foreign or gimmicky or New Age-y, or not edgy enough for your radical sex explorations—Barbara Carrellas will cure you of all misconceptions and bring you an Urban Tantra to unite your sex, your spirit, your erotic wanderlust, your edge.”
—Carol Queen, director of the Center for Sex & Culture, San Francisco

"It was fantastic: way above and beyond my expectations! Barbara's an amazing teacher. I went in nervous and she put me at ease immediately. She managed to walk the very fine line between pragmatic and woo-woo, spiritual and light-hearted for the duration of the workshop. I'm pretty suspect of anything that involves sacred this or chakra that, but she was so down to earth and approachable about the whole thing that I was able to push my reservations to the side and really get a lot out of it. I left feeling more connected to myself and my partner, and excited to try new things. I'd definitely go to her workshops in the future, and have already recommended this one to friends." -Anna, Participant at Urban Tantra® workshop at the New York Open Center

"Rarely can you meet a gifted facilitator, a coach to coaches who can work with a global audience and make everyone in the room feel unique and special. I meet that person this week. Barbara came into our space and worked with her intuitive, receptive energy and gave my team of facilitators very practical yet deep set of skills, the awareness of how and when to use them and the confidence to tackle issues with grace and insight. What a gift. " —Brad Waldron, Founding Director, Oxygen Learning, London, U.K.
