The eight movements or lungsang (literally "purifying the pranas") are the key to harmonizing and reshaping habitual brathing patterns. Their purpose is to harmonize and strenghten our energies throught dynamic and effective exercises that act on the physical level through body movements and on the subtle level through coordination of the breath. Aside from toning and training the body, these movements have the very specific goal of training developing four differnt ways of holding the breath.

The eight movements train the eight fundamental aspects of breath in Yantra Yoga (inhaling slowly, holding open, directing the hold, fast exhalation, fast inhalation, closing the hold, holding with contraction, and exhaling slowly) throught a unique set of exercises that apply movement and breath in a precise, coordinated, and conscious way.

  • Harmonize and reshape the entire functioning of your breathing system, including four different ways of inhaling, exhaling, and holding the breath
