Tibetan Yoga

A Wisdom Academy Online Course with Alejandro Chaoul

Lesson 1: An Introduction to Tibetan Yoga in the Bon Tradition

Welcome to preview mode! You can view the first video and, if this course offers guided meditations, the first meditation of the first lesson.

In this first lesson, Alejandro Chaoul introduces us to the basic concepts and history of the trul khor, or magical movements, of Tibetan Yoga. We learn trul khor’s similarities and differences with Indian hatha yoga, and how it arose in Tibet in both Buddhism and Bon—Tibet’s indigenous tradition, as well as how these practices fit into the overall path of Dzogchen (Great Perfection) teachings as a way of aligning body, energy, and mind towards mental spaciousness. He also provides an overview of the postures covered in this course and guides us through a practice that invites us to connect with our body, breath, and mind.
