5.     Skeletal variations

6.     Compression v Tension

MODULE A: TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE

TCM in essence seeks to understand and facilitate harmony in human life.  It is based on a very simple principle:  any system that is in harmony tends towards health, wellbeing and sustainability.  A system that is in disharmony tends towards illness, disease, suffering and collapse.

 In Chinese medicine it is believed that energy (Qi) travels through the waterways of the connective tissue in our body. 

In Yin Yoga we directly target the connection tissue.

In MODULE A of the Himalayan Yin Yoga we examine the 5 maps of Chinese Medicine – The Five Elements, Vital Substances, The TCM Organ System, The Meridian System and TCM Pathogenesis.

ABOUT HIMALAYAN YIN YOGA

Himalayan Yin Yoga is presented as the path to self-realization used by the Himalayan and Taoist masters in a simple, understandable manner whilst not compromising the quality and depth of the ancient wisdom practices. 

Himalayan Yoga incorporate three streams of learning:  Yoga, Vedanta and Tantra. These three streams are like fingers of a hand; they work together perfectly.

Yin Yoga combines Hatha Yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).  Yin Yoga is also an attempt to present the energetic sciences and ancient wisdom traditions of The Tantra and The Tao as complimentary descriptions of the same system.

The uniqueness of the Himalayan Yoga tradition is that it is one of the few known remaining traditional yoga lineages that can trace a line of Masters in an unbroken way approximately over 5,000 years so that the original lineage is still ‘alive’.  Just the mere mention of having adopted the traditional Himalayan Yoga lineage in India causes people to bow with reverence that only a Master commands in India.

In the Himalayan Yoga tradition the classical approaches of Raja, Jnana, Karma, and Bhakti Yoga, as well as Hatha, Kriya, Kundalini, Laya, Mantra, Nada, Siddha, and Tantra Yoga are used simultaneously. Together, they guide the student directly through the layers (Koshas) of the being to the direct experience of the center of their own consciousness. Meditation, contemplation, mantra and prayer combine to direct the student to the final stage: piercing the pearl of wisdom called bindu, leading to the Absolute.

ABOUT TARAJII

Tara is the founder of Himalayan Yin Yoga.

Tara commenced studying traditional Chinese medicine in the 1970’s. During this time she also studied other Taoist energetic practices such as Qi Jung and Tai Chi. Movement has always been Tara’s main mode of expression. From a very young age she expressed herself through classical ballet, highland dancing, hockey, dragon boating and triathlons. Tara believes movement and sound connect her to the cosmos and the divine. Yoga did not come naturally to Tara. It took her many years of Yang activities and several subsequent injuries coupled with sporting disciplines that pushed her mind and body to the edge physically, mentally and emotionally before she was able to embrace the Yogic path. In 2010 Tara took her first Yin Yoga class and immediately recognised to couple her 20year relationship with Buddhism was her purpose in this life. she needed to teach this practice. Tara passionately believes she can only teach what she practices; this is her spiritual path. Read more
