This workshop explores the distinctive Tibetan Bon practice of yoga known as Tsa Lung Trul Khor, which translates to “magical movements of vital breaths and channels.” This practice incorporates breathing and awareness with particular body movements, a process that can put you in touch with the subtle aspects of your body (your channels and chakras) as they are explained in Tibetan medicine. The group will explore a particular Trul Khor that comes from the eleventh-century instructions to one’s natural state of mind (A-tri) and relate to the five elements (earth, water, fire, air, and space) with their corresponding breaths into the chakras. Practicing Tibetan yoga can clear long-held blocks in your body, energy, and mind, and support spontaneous arising of awareness during formal meditation and everyday life. Dr. Chaoul has been utilizing Tibetan yoga meditation, breath, and movements at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston since 1999, both in research protocols and in the clinic. Join this weekend experience to discover practices that came from caves and monasteries to the modern clinic, and now can enhance your everyday life.
