healing yoga from tibet
For a long time, Lu Jong was a "secret yoga" practiced by Buddhist monks in isolation. Early in the 21st century Buddhist master Tulku Lobsang Rinpoche introduced a series of 23 Lu Jong exercises with slight modifications to make it accessible for the Western body and lifestyle. Nowadays everyone can benefit from this powerful yoga practice.
Lu Jong Healing Yoga is rooted in Tibetan Buddhism and Tibetan Medicine. In this class, we focus on creating a balance between body, breath and mind. With simple, flowing movements we internally massage our spine in order to release big and subtle blockages. We open ourselves so that our life energy (lung or qi) flows harmoniously. This helps us to become aware of the present moment and transform negative emotions.
With regular practice, you build greater physical strength and flexibility, you boost your immune system and you sharpen your senses. You will also uncover your true nature beyond the thinking-mind.
What to expect during a Lu Jong class?
Stimulating self-healing: releasing blockages by observing your physical, mental and emotional body
Breathing: calming the nervous system with special breathing techniques.
Mindfulness: enter the power of the present moment
Body & mind connection: experiencing the interconnectedness between body and mind
This gentle yoga is accessible to everyone, regardless of age or experience. The poses of Lu Jong yoga are different from those of Indian yoga styles.
