Yantra Yoga, the Tibetan yoga of movement, is one of the oldest yoga systems in the world brought to the West in the 1970’s by the Master Namkhai Norbu. Its unique form of movement sequences, in combination with the different phases of breathing, helps to coordinate and harmonize our energy, obtaining optimal health and authentic relaxation of the mind.
"In general,we all know how to inhale and exhale, but usually we do not do it correctly because the breath is linked to the mind, which is very often altered and confused. We can clearly observe this fact comparing the breathing of a very disturbed person with the breathing of a calm and serene person. For this reason, it is important to coordinate breathing" - Chögyal Namkhai Norbu
This is an ideal opportunity if you are new to Yantra Yoga but also if you want to refresh, train or deepen your practice. The course starts training the complete breathing as practiced in Yantra Yoga, using the Harmonious Breathing method, followed by the preliminary sequences of Yantra Yoga.
- Nine Purification Breathings, a pranayama that prepares us for the practice, exhaling the stale air and resetting our breathing patterns.
- Series of Tsigjong, the exercises to warm up the body, loosen the joins and activate our sense organs.
- Series of Lungsang, also called "the 8 movements", a fundamental part of the practice; coordinating breathing, movement and rhythm, training and developing different aspects of our breathing cycle and purifying our prana.
- Rhythmic Breathing, a wonderful method to gradually develop the capacity of our breathing in a safe way, and most importantly, having a great, calming effect on our mind.
