About Yantra Yoga:
Yantra Yoga, practiced in the past by the Mahasiddhas of India and Pakistan, was originally brought to Tibet by Padmasambhava in the 8th century and entrusted to the scholar, master, and translator Vairochana who recorded the practice in a text known as the “Trulkor Nyida Khajor”, or the Union of Sun and Moon. It was first introduced to the West in the 1970s by one of the foremost Dzogchen masters of our time, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, and later made openly available, understanding the immense benefit it holds for everyone.
At the level of the body Yantra Yoga practice can help us deeply relax our body, ease pain and discomfort caused by stiffness and tension and improve sleep quality. Our body becomes lighter and flexible and therefore circulation, articular health and general mobility is improved. At the level of the breathing we become more aware of the way we breathe, our breathing is deeper, calmer, and our lung capacity increases. We also access breathing techniques whenever we need to induce relaxation. At the level of our mind we can find a deep sense of relaxation, reduce anxiety, elevate our emotional state, increase calmness, and a sense of peace and tranquillity. The practice can also reduce mental burnout, and fogginess, and have a recharging and energizing effect, making our mind sharper and more focused with more presence and awareness.
It is not necessary for students to have prior knowledge in Yantra Yoga or any other Yoga method. The idea of the program is to offer opportunities to connect with the community of the practitioners from around the world and to make the most of our collective experience. That's why we encourage students to attend at least 50% of the classes live, the rest can be done live or deferred as best suits them.
People with prior knowledge of Yantra Yoga who wish to do a particular classes and not the entire program, can do so as long as they know the previous content. People new to Yantra Yoga who wish to do the program once it has started can do so, as long as they commit to watch the previous workshops and taking into account that this option for each meeting will only be available for one month
