Nejang Tibetan Healing Yoga Workshop

  • Tibetan House 4900 Tchoupitoulas Street New Orleans, LA, 70115 United States (map)

10:00 AM – 6:00 PM Central Time

Nejang is a Tibetan healing yoga practice that consists of simple breath work, physical exercises, and self-massage. It is designed to improve the function of the sense and inner organs, open the channels, balance the energy, and relax the mind. With roots in the Tibetan Buddhist Kalachakra tradition, it has been prescribed to patients by Tibetan doctors for centuries due to its ability to support health and cure disease.

In this workshop, Jason will introduce the fundamentals of Tibetan Medicine, including the channels and energies of the subtle body, and teach the key points of posture and breath used in Nejang. We will then learn and practice some of the twenty-four Nejang exercises and explore their specific therapeutic applications using the Nejang text and commentaries.
