Yantra Yoga

Yantra Yoga, or the Yoga of Movement, is a fundamental method to integrate the profound essence of the Dzogchen Teaching in the three doors (body, voice and mind) of the individual. Through positions and movements combined with breathing, one's energy is coordinated and harmonized so as to let the mind relax and find its authentic balance, which is the basis for contemplation.

Yantra Yoga is based on the ancient text Nyida Khajor, known in English as “The Union of the Sun and Moon.” This text was written in the 8th century by Vairocana, one of the most skilled Buddhist Masters and translators of his time. He received the transmission of this Yantra Yoga teaching from Guru Padmasambhava, who received it from a great Mahasiddha called Humkara. Then it was transmitted from Vairocana to Yudra Nyingpo, various other masters, and has been passed down from teacher to student, in an unbroken lineage, since that time.
