Publisher Description

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. Table of Contents- hat is Yantra Yoga?; The Uniqueness of Yantra Yoga; Advice for Practice; Warm-ups; The Nine Purification Breathings; The Five Exercises for Loosening the Jo

Review

"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 "Ch gyal Namkhai Norbu is one of the greatest Tibetan meditation masters and scholars teaching in the West." --Lama Surya Das, author of Awakening the Buddha Within and Awakening the Buddhist Heart, and the founder of the Dzogchen Foundation in Massachusetts

"Tibetan Yoga of Movement deliberately focuses on the aspects of the practice that are readily accessible to everyone, independent of their views, ideals, aspirations and capacities. The book provides clear instructions for the practical application of all the practices, drawn from four decades of teaching Yantra Yoga in the West." --New York Journal of Books

"An amazing insight into a practice that is traced back 4000 years... While this book is aimed at being a basic introduction, it gave me a good overview of the core concepts that are the basis for this practice and presented it in a way that is user-friendly and straightforward." --Dana Gornall, ElephantJournal.com

"This is an educational book that has the potential to entice everyone. Even though Asia is not a stranger to Yoga, yet, a book like this is an extremely valuable addition and should be within reach of everyone everywhere." --Namta Gupta, BookPleasures.com
