Description - Tibetan Yoga Of Movement by Chogyal Namkhai Norbu
Derived from an eighth century Tibetan Buddhist text, Yantra Yoga includes many of the same positions found in Hatha Yoga but in Yantra Yoga they are applied differently. The Yantra Yoga system encompasses 108 sets of movements (yantras) and several types of breathing to be learned at one's own pace. Each yantra is a sequence of seven phases of movement connected with seven phases of breathing. With the subtle practice of uniting breathing and movement, Yantra Yoga is an essential practice for yoga practitioners and anyone seeking authentic balance, harmony, and understanding of our true nature. Since the eighth century, this yoga teaching has been passed down from teacher to student in an unbroken lineage. Chogyal Namkhai Norbu, the current lineage holder began transmitting Yantra Yoga in the West in the 1970s. Presenting detailed instructions accompanied by over 400 instructional photos, the book describes the sequence of movements, methods of breathing, and the concrete health benefits of the practice.
