yantralogo

Yantra Yoga, or Movement Yoga, is connected to Tibetan Medicine that reached India around the 4thC AC, then later Tibet. It goes much further than just cure or prevent, as besides this it is a path to realisation within the Dzogchen school, to realise the true nature of mind, transmitted through a pure and uninterrupted lineage from the Mahasiddha Humkara to Padmasambhava and Vairochana (8thC) until Namkhai Norbu RInpoche who started teaching it from 1970.

It consists in a continuous sequence of movements that follow the rhythm of a relaxed heartbeat, applying distinctive techniques of conscious breathing, without effort but vividly and with stamina, adapted to the capabilities and needs of each participant.

Yantra Yoga (The Union of Sun and Moon) is movement, attention and breathing like life itself, solar and lunar energies in action. It is harmony and rhythm that liberate the potentials of your mind, refocuses your energy in the right direction for the good functioning of your organism and balances your emotions, also lifting your conscious higher than it's limitations, until the awakening of your abilities.

The movement of your body will escort the harmonious movement of your breathing, following your heartbeat, in union with your attention, allowing your mind to open itself to clarity reinforcing within your vital energy and dissolving the obstacles from your energy channels in order to integrate and recuperate your physical,emotional and mental health, allowing you to mix in an harmonious way, spontaneously and without effort with those that surround you.

Instructor: Julia Gimenez, recognised instructor by Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche.

Harmonious Breathing is a method developed by Fabio Andrico, inspired by a simplification of the experience of Yantra Yoga of Vairochana, one of the oldest yogas in the world. It is linked to Tibetan Medicine, transmitted in a pure form since the 3rdC and brought to us today by Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche. It is based in the integration of mind and movement via the breathing linked to the energy that is the base of emotions, following the heartbeats of a sane heart in order to balance and reinforce our vital energy and return to our natural state.

A correct conscious breathing, full and fluid, free of blockages or bad habits patterns is the key for mind and body co-ordination. It liberates and levels emotions, calms the mind increasing clarity, concentration and potential. It is used in many therapeutic methods, either psychological to control mind and self knowledge, or physical in rehabilitating and unifying pain, chore part of many kind of yogas and practices in order to achieve a state of contemplation.

The benefits have been assessed scientifically including in major and chronic illnesses. It reduces tensions, physical and mental stresses, improving physiological and mental functions, as dreams quality, making them more restorative, increases energy levels and satisfaction capabilities during the day, cardiovascular health, breathing and nervous systems, digestion towards a more efficient consumption of oxygen, including glandular rejuvenation, mainly the pituitary and pineal glands.

Good breathing means a longer and better life. Adaptable to any age and physical conditions these breathing exercises can be practiced alone or combined with any kind of therapy, yoga, meditation practices, medical treatments, increasing their effectiveness.

As well as a harmonious breathing, correct posture, preliminaries of Yantra Yoga and some Tibetan Medicine basics we will experiment with some basic pranayamas in order to eliminate contaminated air, increase breathing capacity by co-ordinating heart functions, balancing anxiety and depression and increase calmness, facilitating the necessary kumbhaka needed for higher meditative states.
