Beginner's Yantra Yoga Course with Paula Barry

Beginner's Yantra Yoga Course
with authorized 2nd Level Yantra Yoga instructor Paula Barry

What is Yantra Yoga?

Yantra Yoga aims to balance the three aspects of the body, energy, and mind through breath, movement and concentration.

This Tibetan Yoga of Movement has been passed down through an unbroken lineage from teacher to student since the 8th century. This practice helps us to relax and achieve a state of well-being and harmony, at the same time enhancing physical health, energy, and mental balance.

Yantra Yoga differs from more widespread yogas in that it is done as a sequence of movements coordinated with breathing and specific ways of holding. It is a dynamic system of trulkhor (movements) and tsalung (pranayamas), and can also be a complete path toward total liberation.
