Discover Yantra Yoga: The Union of the Sun & Moon
Yantra Yoga is an ancient system of Tibetan yoga based on the text Trulkor Nyida Kajor, “The Union of the Sun and the Moon,” written in the 8th century by Master Vairocana. It was introduced in the West by the Tibetan Dzogchen Master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche. Yantra Yoga offers a unique series of yoga movements combined with conscious breathing for optimal health, relaxation, and harmony.
Yantra Yoga’s preliminary practices are designed to harmonize and expand our breathing capacity, loosen our joints, optimize our energy channels, and reawaken our natural state of balance. This workshop will focus on the 8 Movements for Purifying the Prana, the 9 Breathings for Exhaling the Stale Air, and Rhythmic Breathing, to help coordinate our vital energy, expand our breathing capacity, and reawaken our natural state of balance. These are perfect take-home practices for physical and mental well-being in everyday life.
