Tibetan Yantra Yoga has been practiced for thousands of years. In Tibetan it’s called Trulkhor. The benefits of Yantra Yoga purify your channels, your wind, and your body. In order to purify the channels you need positive energy and to purify the wind you need a happy, joyful mind. In order to purify the body, you need to nourish your body with healthy food and beverages. Yantra yoga is a combination of body movement and directed breath. In order to receive the most benefits of this yoga, it is best to practice every day. It is simple and has enormous benefit. During this session, Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche will also teach participants prostration yoga.
