In Part One of this ongoing series, participants will be introduced to the Foundations of Tibetan Yoga. Tibetan Yoga is comprised of diverse contemplative and bodily practices, akin to modern postural yoga and traditional Hatha Yoga, but maintains many unique features, such as the use of mantra, visualization, internal breath retention and Buddhist meditation disciplines.
Dr. James utilizes the term Buddhist Yoga, to describe this spectrum of somatic meditation methods, drawn from early-Indian and trans-Himalayan contexts, where cultivation of wisdom and compassion are the emphasis, and health cultivation a notable aspect.
James will provide an overview of the history and theory of Tibetan Yoga and will provide an introduction of essential practices of the body, energy (speech) and mind. Some of the theories include five element schemas, humors or doshas and wind and channel perspectives common to Tibetan and Asian medical tradition.
Outer Yoga refers to essential methods that are often geared toward health cultivation, balance of mind, rejuvenation and longevity. This foundational weekend will explore select methods from various Lujong (“bodily exercise”) traditions. These practices can be modified for all body types and experience levels.
Following segments will deepen participant’s experience of Outer Yoga methods, while introducing some of the elaborate or tantric visualization methods essential to these practices.
James Bae is a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine, Yoga therapist and educator who leads retreats and intensives, nationally and internationally, focusing on Tummo and Tibetan Yoga. He is authorized to teach in in a number of traditional Buddhist lineages, following over twenty-five years of dedicated practice and teaching.
Individual Instruction in Mindfulness, Calm Abiding and Self-Healing
Single Class (1 hr) – The Single class format is to introduce one or two useful methods, with the initial period of discussion to establish the preferred form of pactice the participant will learn in the course of the session.
Four Session (4hrs total) – A four session class provides an overview of Calm-Abiding and Mindfulness Techniques. Depending upon individual interest, these tutorials can be focused on a few techniques, or introduce the broad spectrum of mindfulness methods, not often taught in many retreat settings.
