YANTRA YOGA: The Tibetan Yoga of Movement


Yantra Yoga offers the practitioner a unique approach to Yoga practice, parallel to the Hatha Yoga of the Hindu tradition. Called the “Union of Sun and Moon”, it is a dynamic system of trulkhor (movements) and tsalung (pranayamas) and differs from more widespread yogas in that it is done as a sequence of movements co-ordinated with breathing and specific ways of holding.

Yantra Yoga offers the practitioner a unique approach to Yoga practice, parallel to the Hatha Yoga of the Hindu tradition. Called the “Union of Sun and Moon,” it is a dynamic system of trulkhor (movements) and tsalung (pranayamas) and differs from more widespread yogas in that it is done as a sequence of movements coordinated with breathing and specific ways of holding. This practice helps us to relax and achieve a state of well-being and harmony, at the same time enhancing physical health, energy, and mental balance. At a more profound level, it is an important practice to integrate body, speech and mind in a state that is beyond our normal dualistic concepts.

Yantra Yoga is a very rich body of knowledge that includes 3 preliminary series, 75 yantras (asanas), 7 breathing practices, 7 lotuses and the vajra wave–108 exercises in all. Profusely illustrated with drawings and photographs, Yantra Yoga presents Tibet’s trulkhor yoga tradition as taught by one of its master exponents, Chogyal Namkhai Norbu.

Yantra Yoga’s movements, exercises, and methods of concentration are all based on an eighth-century text by Vairocana whose translation is included, illuminated by Chogyal Namkhai Norbu’s commentary. Detailed charts for the timing of the breathing exercises are also included.

Chogyal Namkhai Norbu is one of the great living masters of Dzogchen. He was a professor at the Oriental Institute of the University of Naples, Italy, and is the author of The Crystal and the Way of Light and Dzogchen: The Self-Perfected State. Adriano Clemente first studied Yantra Yoga with Chogyal Namkhai Norbu in the 1970s. He is the co-author of The Supreme Source.

This book holds the fascinating biography of Togden as written by his nephew Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, based on extensive notes the author took while visiting his uncle in 1954 in Derge, as well as on information he received after Togden’s death from Sala Karma Samten (1919-1993). This book traces the life story of twentieth-century Tibetan yogin, the Togden (a title which means “endowed with realization”) Ugyen Tendzin (1888-1962), whose amazing achievement of the rainbow body was witnessed in Eastern Tibet not only by his countrymen, but also, to their confusion and dismay, by the Chinese officers who were responsible for his imprisonment.

The rainbow body is one of the highest attainments of Dzogchen, an ancient path recognized as the supreme vehicle of Tibetan Buddhism. It is accomplished by transmitting one’s physical constituents into the essence of the five elements, and as a result no material body remains after death.

Tibetan Yoga of Movement introduces the method of Yantra Yoga, a traditional Tibetan form that is one of the oldest recorded systems of yoga in the world. Derived from an eighth century Tibetan Buddhist text, Yantra Yoga includes many of the same positions found in Hatha Yoga but in Yantra Yoga they are applied differently. The Yantra Yoga system encompasses 108 sets of movements (yantras) and several types of breathing to be learned at one’s own pace. Each yantra is a sequence of seven phases of movement connected with seven phases of breathing. With the subtle practice of uniting breathing and movement, Yantra Yoga is an essential practice for yoga practitioners and anyone seeking authentic balance, harmony, and understanding of our true nature.
