THE WISDOM ACADEMY PRESENTS
Tibetan Yoga, Part 2
An online course with Alejandro Chaoul
This online course, coming from the Wisdom Academy in 2024, will provide students with the precious opportunity to learn the powerful and transformative practice of Tibetan yoga, (trul khor, “magical movement”) from one of its leading teachers, Dr. Alejandro Chaoul.
This course will focus specifically on the pervasive breath (khyab lung) which Sharzda Rinpoche, a 19th-century Dzogchen master in the Bon tradition, calls the “principal breath.” While other breath practices are related to specific parts of the body, this breath pervades throughout as a “mandalic breath.”
You will learn two sets of magical movements (a total of 10 distinct movements) that support the experiential understanding of your body as a mandala.

If you’re looking to develop a deeper, more stable, or more regular meditation practice, Tibetan yoga may be a key to unlock that potential.
The magical movements of Tibetan yoga are intended to support meditators in their sitting practice. This is truly a holistic mind-body practice, supporting meditation in a wide range of ways, including helping with both dullness and agitation.
We look forward to seeing you in the course!
