Tibetan Yoga of Movement offers a complete introduction to Yantra Yoga, one of the oldest traditions of Yantra Yoga in the world. Padmasambhava brought this ancient practice to Tibet, where it was recorded in an 18th-century sacred Buddhist text and then passed down in a continuous succession of teachers and students to current lineage holder, Dzogchen Master Chogyal Namkhai Norbu.
Yantra Yoga includes many positions similar to those of Hatha Yoga in form, but different in the dynamics of the way in which they are practiced, especially in the coordination of movement and breathing. In this book, Chogyal Namkhai Norbu and his student, Fabio Andrico, an internationally recognized expert on Yantra Yoga, present the three preliminary groups of movements and the twenty-five core movement sequences (Yantras), with detailed step-by-step instructions accompanied by instructional photos. Also shown are simple warm up exercises that can be used at the beginning of each session, rhythmic breathing instructions, and suggested practice routines, followed by an index of the health benefits and basic principles of Tibetan Medicine.
"Yantra Yoga is a profound movement practice that encompasses the coordination of the breath with movement in a way that creates flexibility and harmony within the whole being. Transmitted in an authentic lineage from an ancient tantra, this practice is amazingly beneficial. I highly recommend this book."
- Lama Tsultrim Allione, author of "Women of Wisdom" and "Feeding Your Demons."
