Try the matchmaking event that's been dubbed "Yoga for your Love Life" by singles

In this new world of online dating, shallow conversations and superficial standards have become the norm...

Robbing us of the magic that comes with connecting on a deeply meaningful level.

That's why, here at Tantra Speed Date®, we do speed dating a little differently.

You'll engage with your dates in a way that's fun, authentic, and even healing.

We'll guide you through a ceremony of relationship-building exercises with up to 20 singles in a Puja circle. (See our FAQ section below for more details)

Each exercise will aid you and your date in playfully exploring the depth of your connection. (Think verbal dyads, dancing, and communication games!)

And all of them enhance your relationship skills in subtle, yet powerful ways.

So you'll walk away not only with matches...

But with all the tools you need to bring more love into your dating life!

Over 15,000 singles have gone on 100,000+ dates in 35+ cities worldwide. 94.09% have matched with one or more dates. If you don't match, your next event is on us!

Why "Tantra" Speed Date?

"Tantra" has become a bit of a buzzword lately, due to its many misleading definitions. Translated from Sanskrit, it means "weaving," which means bringing oneness to yourself and consciousness to what you do.

In keeping with this philosophy...

We do our best to bring you and your dates into a state of presence. When you're in this state, our guided exercises will light that "spark" for you – no awkward small talk needed!

Plus, you'll learn how to bring that level of presence into all your future interactions.

So grab your ticket and get ready for a fun night of speed dating, matchmaking, and conscious relating!

"We couldn't have imagined how our lives would be impacted by attending Tantra Speed Date® in July 2017. Our connection was soft and sweet, what we both describe as the 'best first date of our lives.' Meeting in such a vulnerable and safe environment was the perfect catalyst for creating an authentic connection. Having that as the base for our first meetings laid the foundation for honesty and trust.

We've been together since and can't wait to see where the future takes us!"

— Jihan & Joseph (New York City, NY)

**2022 UPDATE: Jihan and Joseph are now married with a baby daughter!**

~ FAQ ~

What is Tantra Yoga?

Tantra is thousands of years old (of Hindu and Buddhist tradition) and has become a buzzword, which unfortunately has some misleading definitions. Translated from Sanskrit, it means "weaving," which means bringing oneness to yourself and consciousness to what you do. The exercises are designed to bring you into a state of being more present when you meet your dates. And who doesn't want to be more present, right?

What is a Puja?

A Puja is an intentional ceremony. In Sanskrit it means reverence, honour, an offering. It is a ritual designed to open our hearts and allow us to see the inner beauty within ourselves and all beings. It invites us into the elegant dance of masculine and feminine in a warm space of oneness and connection--what a great way to start your first date!

What does it look like?

Participants form two circles facing each other. The men form the outside circle and the women form the inside, with each woman facing a man. Each pair then share a meaningful exchange through a directed exercise (a Puja “station”), which can be for a few seconds or a few minutes. Then they put their hands together in Namaste, thank each other and--like a speed date--rotate to the next person. The ceremony ends when everyone has rotated a full circle.

What if I don't feel comfortable doing the exercises?

Thanks for asking! While the exercises are straightforward and fun, you are always 100% at choice for how you wish to participate. If you find an exercise that doesn't work for you, then--just like in yoga--you have the option to modify or completely opt out. We encourage everyone to participate at their own comfort level, and our facilitators demonstrate what that looks like so everyone is clear before we begin.

What's the age range?

Some events are open and some have a specific age range (stated in the title)--though it's merely a suggestion, not a rule. See our statistics and learn why people love the open events on our FAQ.

What is the covid-19 policy?

We will follow the venue requirements that are in effect at the time of the event. See the Covid-19 Information section the page for your event

What if I don't match with anyone?

As many of our attendees say, "I don't even care if I match with anyone, this was amazing!" That said, we geek out on data. Our statistics say there is a 95% chance you'll match with AT LEAST one person. But if for whatever reason the probability fails you, we've got you covered. Your next ticket will be free!

Why is this experience called 'More than Dating'?

This event is more than just a speed date. It's about bringing more connection, and perhaps healing, to the masculine and feminine within us. That's the juicy part of a connection that makes relationships so fun. Men learn how to hold a grounded masculine space. And when that happens, women can relax into their feminine and not have to do or hold so much. This creates a new way of relating that is easeful and connected, and not something you can ever experience in a bar or on a dating app. We believe this is why people love it so much and why one participant said it will 'restore your hope in dating.'
