Tsa Lung Trul Khor is an ancient practice from the Himalayas, and especially Tibet. Yogis, men and women, have used these breathing techniques and movements to sustain their physical, mental and spiritual well being for thousands of years! Traditionally kept secret, permission has been given to teach them more openly now in the West. See for yourself how these AMAZING practices can heal your physical body, clear your subtle energy body of obstacles and blockages, and enhance your spiritual well being.
We have both free and paid courses, as well as live classes and workshops to support you on your path.
Tsa Lung Trul Khor
"Magical Movements of the Channels & Winds"
The Nine Breaths of Purification is a simple and most powerful practice for cleansing the energy body, releasing stress, and clearing the mind. Regardless of experience or physical condition, this practice is the perfect beginning or end to any meditation or yoga practice and can be done at any time.
This course is always free.
A-tri Trul Khor
Trul Khor utilizes dynamic movement, breath retention, and focused awareness to revitalize body, mind and spirit. Join Rob for live weekly practice sessions, tutorials, practice videos and more.
The live sessions assume you familiarity with the movements of the "Ligmincha 16." If you are interested but unsure, please contact Rob with the form below.
The five Tsa Lung exercises clear the major energy centers, or chakras, of the body, balance with winds, and bring the elements into harmony. These five exercises are more gentle than Trul Khor, but equally capable of clearing negativities and restoring balance and harmony in body, breath and mind. With each movement we gently hold our breath and focus our attention while moving the body so that all the positive qualities of our being can shine forth!
Frequently Asked Questions
Common questions about Tibetan Yoga (Tsa Lung Trul Khor)
Who are these practices for?
The Nine Breaths of Purification and the Tsa Lung movements can be done by anyone, and we mean everyone! The A-Tri Trul Khor as taught here is also good for all levels of experience and ability. Rob has taught to people using wheel chairs, canes, with arms in casts and more. Some of the practices in their fullest expression are demanding, but all of them can be modified to suit your specific situation.
The Zhang Zhung cycle of Trul Khor takes a good bit of flexibility and breath retention and are best for more experienced students with full mobility.
How hard is it?
These practices meet you where you are. They are capable of extensive modification based on your level of strength and flexibility. Rob has taught trul khor to people with significant physical disabilities as well as to athletes. The courses offer modifications that will let you find the right level of effort and challenge.
How long does it take to see benefits?
It varies from person to person, but the Nine Breaths can have an immediate impact on our emotional and physical state of being. The same is true for the Tsa Lung and the Trul Khor. But, because they take time to learn and grow familiar, with it may take a few weeks of regular practice before the benefits can be felt.
How do I get started?
Take the FREE Nine Breaths Course now! It is so easy, and so powerful! Once you feel comfortable practicing it, then take the Tsa Lung course. These movements are a natural fit with the Nine Breaths. You might find that this is enough for you - they are a complete practice. But maybe you want to go more deeply into an exploration of how these practices can change you, not only physically, but at an energetic and extremely subtle level. In that case, give our A Tri Trul Khor course a try.
Included with each course are practice videos for you to use at home. And we offer live classes for those who complete the Tsa Lung and Trul Khor courses and want the support of collective practice.
How is Trul Khor different than other kinds of Yoga?
Trul Khor really works by a different mechanism than the kinds of yoga best known in the west. In yoga, we usually hold static poses for several breaths, or we move the breath with the body, flowing. In Trul Khor we hold the breath and the attention in specific places in the body while dynamically moving the body. Each exercise concludes with a forceful exhalation and clearing movement. The power of the breath and the focus of attention as we move generates heat, or subtle warmth. This starts to clear the energy body. Ultimately, yoga and trul khor have the same goals, but they approach them with different methods.
