Senior Instructors Fabio Andrico and Laura Evangelisti, together with other Yantra Yoga practitioners, present traditional Yantra Yoga as they learned it from Dzogchen Master Chogyal Namkhai Norbu. Shot on location at the Temple of the Great Liberation in Arcidosso, Italy, this two-part series is meant as an inspiration to begin, renew, continue, and deepen daily yoga practice with qualified teachers. Viewers see Yantra Yoga practitioners gracefully yet powerfully move through this dynamic and unique system of Tibetan Yoga, as they get a taste of its deep and lasting physical, emotional, and spiritual benefits.
Yantra Yoga is one of the oldest recorded systems of yoga in the world. Its unique series of positions and movements, combined with conscious breathing, can help coordinate and harmonize one’s vital energy so that the mind can relax and find its authentic balance. Yantra Yoga contains a wide range of movements that can be applied by everyone, and it is a superb method to attain optimal health, relaxation, and balance.
