YANTRA YOGA - The Yoga of Movement

The balance of body and mind is crucial for our well-being. Even the ancients knew.

Over the millennia, this understanding led to the emergence of diverse practices designed to benefit the individual as a whole. Yantra Yoga is one of the oldest systems of yoga from Tibet – a land of vast knowledge with a profound tradition of the teachings of Buddha. It consists of a unique series of positions and movements combined with conscious breathing that together coordinate and harmonize individual energy so that the mind can relax and find true balance.

Chögyal Namkhai Norbu started to transmit this profound yoga in the West in the 70s. In the same period he drew up a detailed commentary on the basis of oral explanations that he received from some 20th-century Tibetan yogins and siddhas.

This precious text has recently been translated from Tibetan into English, Italian, Russian, and Chinese; translations are underway into German, Spanish, French, and Czech. To date, it is one of the few texts that brings together in a methodical way and from reliable sources a system of Yoga practice that can boast a centuries-old tradition.

Yantra Yoga uses harmonious movements related to different aspects of breathing that help us become more aware of our body and control our breathing, one of the main means of coordinating vital energy (prana). Because our physical and mental well-being depends on the condition of our energy, it is fundamental for our energy to be balanced. In this way we can have a good physical condition and a calm, present, and relaxed mental state, the basis for deeper knowledge of ourselves.
