Here’s what graduates of the Urban Tantra® Professional Training Program have to say about their experiences in the program and after:

The Urban Tantra® Professional Training Programme has been a truly profound experience for me. It has given me three immensely important gifts. It has validated my practice, giving me permission to keep going with my work and keep evolving my practice. It has taught me a wealth of new techniques to enrich what I do. And it has helped me to clarify who I am and why my offerings are unique.

In addition, I experienced a couple of life-changing ecstatic moments during the course that I will never forget.

I recommend Urban Tantra® Professional Training Programme wholeheartedly to anyone who wants to take their practice to a new level. Barbara is incredible!             London Faerie


This program was life changing, ecstatic, wondrous, transformational and revolutionary. Never in my life have I felt like such an extraordinary person—an extraordinary me! Coming back home, I have been charged with love and energy. I watch how it touches the people around me…amazing! The Urban Tantra® Professional Training Program is not only brilliant, it’s breathing genuine bliss into my life. Thank you Barbara!! I am forever grateful.            Cate Jones


I experienced a level of commitment and dedication from Barbara that I have not seen in other sex/tantra teachers in a long time. I learnt that by taking gender out of the sex equation, I could go deeper into myself and explore the areas of my being that were full of “taught” behaviours, beliefs, judgements and resistances, and then to move through them in a fun and loving environment.

One of the most valuable things that I have found within the Urban Tantra® environment is that during the course there was real time set aside for practice, rather than just being shown and then have a “quick go” afterwards.  This, and the ongoing support and network make Urban Tantra® one of the best learning experiences I’ve had in a very long time.  Thank you Barbara for your commitment, support and love.

Urban Tantra® encompasses all in conscious sexuality, I had been waiting years for a tantric workshop that went beyond the airy fairy and finally the Urban Tantra® Professional Training Program came to Australia. Thank you! The work went far beyond my expectations and I left with a completeness within myself—inspired, transformed, and blessed to share in such a profound experience with a group beautiful souls. Barbara, your authentic presence touched me deeply.            Kirsteen A. Farley


Since I have come back from the Urban Tantra® Professional Training Program, my business has flourished. Women are coming from all over Australia to see me and the referrals just keep on coming. I owe it all to you, Barbara. You have helped me to shift my way of thinking, and that has allowed the universe to pave a path to my door. You are an amazing person, and I send you much love and light.            Rosario


I came to the Urban Tantra Professional Training Program completely free of expectation, and scant on knowledge in the realm of Tantra. I have come away from the course with not only the knowledge I craved, but a deeper understanding of the power within me, a burning desire to share my newfound knowledge and skill with others, and a strong network of passionate people who believe in me and encourage me to reach for the stars.

The belief and confidence I have found in myself and in my art could not have possibly been achieved without the guidance of such a divine, powerful, inspired presenter as Barbara Carrellas. A pioneer in her field, she has committed herself to addressing the achievement of ecstasy in human beings through practical means, teaching the benefits of Tantric breath techniques, selfloving, and transgender experience as aids to a holistic, enriched experience of intimacy in all its forms.

In hindsight, it is easy to understand how she has become a worldwide phenomenon. She is incredibly passionate about her subject matter, is present in every moment and every word, and her focus on prioritising practical “hands-on” learning time encourages her students to manifest the same kind of passion and desire for conscious intimacy, ecstasy and meaningful connection that she possesses. No student is ever left behind; she has a natural ability to bring out the best in everyone, offering personal feedback and encouraging everyone to shine in their own way.

Her brand of Tantra is unique and refreshing. Instead of being rigid or divisive, it is inclusive of all genders, all walks of life and all levels of experience. Instead of being complicated or inaccessible, it is easy to learn and practise, even in today’s helter-skelter world. Instead of being regimented or being burdened with any hard rules, it is completely freeform, and is easily adaptable into any intimate practice. In a sentence: this is Tantra for the 21st century.

To all who are considering exploring the Tantric realm: you can faff about with self-help manuals, learn all the Sanskrit and perfect all the meditations over years or decades, or you can take a risk, buy the book or register for the course, and prepare to embrace a style of Tantra that cuts through the crap, energises you sensually and sexually, nourishes you from within, and truly challenges you to be greater than you think you are, as a lover and as a person in the wide world.

To Barbara: Your work has brought a new dimension to my love, to my art and to my world. Thank you for your passion, your dedication, your conscious presence, and your unbounded love for life. But above all, thank you for your belief in me. It made, and continues to make, all the difference.            Alex Rossiter


Barbara Carrellas is one of the most extraordinary sex educators working on the planet today. I have personally worked with and learnt from Barbara for almost 20 years, and can not recommend the work that she does highly enough.

The Urban Tantra® Professional Training Program is a genuinely holistic training experience. Barbara leads by example and holds a shining light over what’s actually possible, leaving participants feeling emotionally nourished, professionally inspired and intellectually engaged. Her knowledge and passion for sex and communication is unparalleled, and her pioneering work around gender-neutral approaches to sex and orgasm have changed the way sex is taught in workshops globally.

In an era where sex teachers, therapists and workers are needed more than ever, Barbara Carrellas presents sex education in a bold, dynamic, refreshing and genuinely pioneering manner. Barbara Carrellas truly is the Real Deal!            Cyndi Darnell


Barbara, you changed my life. I had a suspicion you would and you did, for this I thank you.  The course was  amazing and truly set me on an inspired and focused path to contribute more, to grow more and to build queer conscious, sexuality and community. The mix of business/professional self development and tantra and BDSM bought on a hopeful delicious buzz.

The course was fucking sizzling and I blew a cosmic cum shot at my capacity to be as I am. I felt connected to a universal ripple of unfurling love and sexual energy—the earth breathed through me and the queerest path to intimacy was clear.

You created a space where my queerness was honored, centralised and allowed to blossom. Very few facilitators/teachers are able to achieve this. You did it with grace and care. Thank you.

I found the UrbanTantra® Professional Training Program to be an incredibly rich, powerful and enduringly beneficial experience. I gained many things from it. First and foremost, a really deep understanding of my unique gifts, and confidence to take them out to the world with more strength and clarity. Barbara shines a very bright light that made me feel special, and from what others said she did the same for everyone at the workshop.

In terms of content, I gained a great deal. Her two “Tantric BDSM” exercises have been foundations for many workshop exercises since then. I also found the breathwork we did immensely valuable, and have used it with many clients. Although I had learnt these things from other teachers, there’s something about the way she teaches them that really helped me to get it.

I also made some great connections there, both personally and professionally – and the network of practitioners she fosters around the world continues to nurture and support me. I feel like I could reach out to any of them and get the support I need—for example, I was housed and fed in Sweden by a couple I’d never met before. Friends met through the Urban Tantra network feel like friends for life.

Personally it was a great experience. I can’t remember being so excited and ecstatic for so many days in a row in many other places. It was comparable to the Faerie Gatherings I attend most years, and these are some of the most important times in my life. What I loved about Barbara’s course was how it was structured yet free, focussed yet exploratory, intense yet playful. I was buzzing all through the course and for weeks after.

I attended the training in 2011 and last year Barbara invited me to teach the marketing module for the 2012 training. This also meant I got to attend the play party a second time. The play party was amazing both times – imagine playing with others who have done so lot of work on themselves, in an energy of trust, openness and risk-taking! It was simply wonderful to be in that space both times, and I had very sexy and deep experiences at both parties.

Could I be more positive about Barbara’s workshop? Probably not. I am a huge fan of her approach, and feel that I have gained a great deal from the workshop and the ongoing support since then.             London Faerie
