The Tibetan Yogas of Breath and Movement involve focusing your mind and directing the subtle breath while engaging in a series of easy-to-perform body movements. The practices consist of two ancient teachings: The Nine Breathings of Purification and the Five Tsa Lung exercises.

The Nine Breathings of Purification, a meditation technique that has been practiced for thousands of years, works with the channels of the energy body as the means of connecting with one's natural mind. 

The Five Tsa Lung Exercises are movements that work with five chakra locations within the central channel of the body: the crown, throat, heart, navel and secret chakra. The Tsa Lung exercises open and clear the chakras, helping one to access one's deeper wisdom. Tsa is the Tibetan word for channel, and lung is the word for wind (called prana, qi or chi in other traditions). 

Together, these practices will allow you to discover your inner wisdom and to express your greatest potential
