What is Yantra Yoga?
One of the oldest recorded systems of Yoga that exists in the world, for centuries Yantra was a closely guarded secret in Tibet, a land that holds a vast and rich cultural heritage. Understanding the immense benefit it holds for everyone, Yantra Yoga was first introduced to the West in the 1970s by one of the foremost masters of our time, Professor Chögyal Namkhai Norbu.
On The Benefits Of Yantra Yoga:
“A practice that helps coordinate body, energy, and mind while making us more balanced and free from tension is immensely important. When we have a more relaxed mind, it is possible to have a better, more harmonious, and healthy life. This is why I decided to teach Yantra Yoga: it is something anyone can find beneficial, and it can bring more compassion and understanding among people. When we are happier, we are more open to everyone and everything around us. In today’s world we really need to find ways to be more relaxed and have less stress and tension so that we can experience genuine happiness and joy.”
Chögyal Namkhai Norbu
“Yantra Yoga can benefit anyone who has the desire to apply its principles. It is not only for expert practitioners of yoga, but for anyone—young or old, thin or not, flexible or not so flexible. Learning to coordinate the movements with the specific rhythm of inhalations, exhalations, and retentions will bring you a wonderful and fruitful practice of Yantra Yoga, even if you need to adapt the positions to your capacity. Regular practice will make a tangible difference in the day-to-day functioning of your body, and you will experience significant improvements in your health, energy, and ability to find a more relaxed and happy existence and overall quality of life.”

Many positions used in Yantra Yoga are similar to those of Hatha Yoga, but the way to assume and apply them differs significantly.

It is a superb method for attaining optimal health, relaxation, and balance through the coordination of breath and movement.Anyone can practice it without limitation. It has been offered for the help of finding the true natural state.
