First and Second Series offered January 7 & 8 Tsadul and Deepening the Eight Movements on February 25 & 26 Yantra Yoga or the Tibetan Yoga of Movement, is one of the oldest recorded systems of Yoga that exists in the world, coming to us through Tibet. "In the practice of Yantra Yoga we use our body, our voice or our breath and our mind. With the body we do positions and movements, with the voice/breath there are many techniques of pranayamas or breathing practices and with the mind there are many ways to concentrate and visualize. The aim is to go beyond judging and thinking with our mind. We call this contemplation. When we apply all these three aspects together, we have the possibility to arrive at our real knowledge or the understanding of our primordial state, our original condition. That is the real meaning of yoga in Yantra Yoga." " Choegyal Namkhai Norbu In this December 10 & 11 week-end course, participants will learn the proper way to do the 9 breathings for exhaling the stale air, the five movements for loosening the joints, and the eight yantras for purifying the prana.
