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.
Tuesday 10:30 – 11:30
Ngakma Nor’dzin—the tutor at Aro Ling Cardiff—has 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.
