Tibetan Yoga employs a number of varied exercises – some gentle, some aerobic, some requiring strength, balance, coordination, flexibility.
Some require almost no physical aptitude.
The exercises are suited to a broad range of ages and body types, making it a highly versatile system of exercise and meditation at any time of life.
There are many benefits to Tibetan Yoga.
It is a cardiovascular exercise system and encourages bone density, joint mobilisation and overall strength and flexibility. Weight loss occurs.
Many of the postures require a distinctive hand position in which the fingers are held straight and splayed apart. This is beneficial for hand flexibility and helps arthritic pain.
The meditation practice concentrates on physical sensation resulting in opening and invigorating the senses. Experience of the senses (sight, hearing, touch, taste, smell and concept) becomes enlivened and increasingly vivid with regular practice, and people become livelier, decreasing depression as their world becomes more vibrant and potent.
