Tog Chod: Tibetan Wisdom Sword Meditation
Limited Capacity seats available

Tog Chod is a practical method for developing mindfulness, self-confidence and clarity. Students experience an empowering “moving meditation” which transforms habitual thought patterns and give the mind clear focus. Described as being energizing and fun, at its core, Tog Chod is about discipline as well as physical and mental training. Executing the decisive movements of the sword, we become fully present, cultivating mindfulness. Thoughts — and our identification with them — are reduced. We begin to experience spaciousness and calm. The forms themselves, rooted in the Kalachakra Tsa Lung exercises and Yama Monk Dances, cultivate a particular energetic quality in the body enabling us to be alert and grounded even amid chaos. Students will learn a new and healthy method to manage stress and anger whilst cultivating self-confidence, courage and the ability to make quick, clear decisions.

Elemental Lu Jong: A View of The World
Limited Capacity seats available

Lu Jong recognizes that we have an unassailable connection with the natural environment. Being in tune with natural rhythms has a profoundly positive effect upon our wellbeing. The elemental building blocks of Space, Earth, Wind, Fire & Water comprise all natural phenomena including our bodies, minds and energies in addition to the earth, oceans and outer space. When the Five Elements within are in disharmony, the outward manifestation is discomfort, negative emotions and disease. The Five Elements Movements balance emotional energies, activate the flow of internal vitality, and harmonize bio-energetic substances (hormones). We will explore each of the Five Elements as relates to Inner, Outer, and Secret levels and learn a specific movement to recalibrate its energy and effects upon the body and mind. Students will also be introduced to the foundations of this Lu Jong Practice: Tantrayana Buddhism, Bon and Tibetan Medicine.

Lu Jong Tibetan Yoga: The Five Body Parts Movements
When we release the energetic blocks in our channels and chakras our energy, or LUNG as is called in Tibetan, is better able to circulate and operate at optimum levels. The beauty of Lu Jong Tibetan yoga is its accessibility and effectiveness for bringing all levels of students into balance and ultimately empowering them to achieve greater health and happiness with sequences they can continue to do on their own. We open the class with the Five Elements Movements to restore the balance of elemental energies in our bodies and then delve into a series of movements developed specifically to address the musculoskeletal system. Gentle movements combined with the breath address different parts of our spine as we work from the head down through the lower extremities.
