TIBETAN HEALING EXERCISES - A ONE DAY INTRODUCTION
How their principles can help us in the understanding, experience and development
of our personal practice of Yoga and Meditation
Tibetan Healing Exercises, or Kung (subtle body) Nyay (to massage), are a combination of movement exercises, breathing techniques and self-massage designed to develop vitality and balance. These exercises are traditionally used for self-healing, deep relaxation and preparation for meditation. The movements are generally performed very slowly without strain. Their benefits result from the full integration and relaxation of body, breath and mind.
An understanding of the principles of these exercises can greatly help us in our practice of Yoga in general and Meditation in particular.
This day is primarily meant to provide Yoga Practitioners with tools for the development of their own personal practice.
Please wear loose, warm clothing, and bring a mat and cushion to sit on. BRING NOTEBOOK.
