Pranayama & Nam Chö Tsa Lung Gegsel

In this retreat, Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche teaches an easy-to-learn combination of various breathing (pranayama) and yoga exercises that can be easily implemented in everyday life.

Developed by Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche, “Yoga for Inner Growth” works with the subtle energy body on the three levels of the channels (Tib. rtsa, Skt. nāḍi), winds (Tib. rlung, Skt. prāṇa), and essences (Tib. thig le, Skt. bindu).

It combines practices from the Tibetan traditions of Nam Chö (nam chos, “sky dharma”) with Indian Haṭha yoga. Its dynamic yogic practice of the body and mind works on the external level by stretching the physical body. On the inner level, Prāṇa activates the immune system. On the secret level, one rests in the nature of mind through meditation.

The Nam Chö (nam chos, “Sky Dharma”) Tsa Lung Gegsel exercises, have been passed down in unbroken lineage from Tertön (treasure finder) Tulku Mingyur Dorje (1645-1667) to Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche. They combine dynamic movements with the visualization of specific seed syllables and the use of controlled breathing.

These powerful exercises for harmonizing the energy channels address subtle areas where blockages are often found. They help us release stress and pent-up emotions in the upper body and shoulders. They also help with conditions of too much internal heat, such as fever or an infection. Likewise, digestion is regulated and menstrual cramps are relieved. A deep healing process is stimulated and contributes to the stabilization of a calm and balanced mind.

In these retreat, Dolpo Tulku Rinpoche will also provide some background on the yoga philosophy of chakras, channels, winds and bindus, and explain how our body awareness can help us overcome our negative states of mind to develop a stable, peaceful mind.

Rinpoche was trained in all of these traditions at Namdroling Monastery in southern India.
