Yantra Yoga is one of the oldest recorded systems of yoga in the world. Coming to us by way of Tibet, Yantra Yoga’s unique series of positions and movements, combined with conscious breathing, helps to coordinate and harmonize the body’s energy so the mind can find its authentic balance. It is a superb method for attaining optimal health and relaxation through coordinated breath and movement.
Discover the essence of this potent and transformative practice with senior Yantra Yoga instructor Fabio Andrico. He begins this workshop by demonstrating techniques that help you experience naturally relaxed, complete breathing. Using this fundamental breathing practice as a base, Fabio then introduces the most essential Yantra Yoga exercises, including
- •The Vairocana Position
•The Nine Purification Breathings
•Lungsang (Purifying the Prana)
•Tsadul (Controlling the Energy Channels)
•The Pranayama of Rhythmic Breathing.
These movement series can reshape, transform, and deepen the effect of your practice by coordinating and enhancing the quality of your subtle energies.
