Jong dar – physical yogas



Jong Dar is a term that covers all the physical practices of the Aro Tradition of Vajrayana Buddhism. Each class is 1 hour. The session includes Ying’khor, sKu-mNyé, walking meditation, and standing meditation. The 25 Ying ’khor exercises involve subtle movement in a standing position. Some include visualisation of coloured light energy synchronised with the breath. A few involve sound as vocalised syllables. sKu-mNyé (pronounced ‘Kum-nye’) in the Aro tradition is a system of repetitive physical exercises which massage the spatial nerves of the subtle, energetic body – giving rise to extraordinary sensations. In these unusual sensations it is possible to find the presence of non-dual awareness - momentary enlightenment. It offers a range of movements, from simple and gentle to demanding and vigorous – so there is something for everyone. All are welcome whatever age or level of fitness. A wonderful form of exercise that is refreshing and invigorating.

Each class is 1 hour and a donation of £3 is requested.

Aro Ling Cardiff is small, so the classes are small. A maximum of 5 people a session can be accommodated. Hence this is a precious opportunity to learn and practise these physical yogas with individual tuition.

Ngakma Nor’dzin—the tutor at Aro Ling Cardiffhas been teaching sKu-mNyé for many years, including a number of years through community education. She is adept at presenting exercises in stages so that they can be easily understood and mastered.
