I’ve been practicing yoga for many years. Working as a dentist, I found yoga a great exercise to bring balance to my body after long hours of work. Yoga helped me to develop an awareness of my body language and increased my sensitivity to the signs and signals of my body.
Lu Jong works simultaneously with body, mind and energy. It’s a combination of form, movement and breath, which besides the physical health benefits, calms the mind and balances emotions.
Lu Jong focuses very much on spine. It balances the spine, prevents postural imbalance and increases blood flow.
It has been two years that I've practiced Lu Jong and enjoyed all of its benefits. I decided to become a teacher of Lu Jong so more people can learn and benefit from this precious ancient practice. I became certified by Tulku Lobsang to teach Tibetan healing yoga and I would love to share it with others so they can also benefit from this healing movement practices.
I am also a certified Yin yoga teacher, registered with Yoga Alliance. I found Yin yoga a great complement to the busyness of our life, where we can find some stillness and stretch our bodies through slow paced, simple yoga postures after a long work day, or we can do it as a morning practice to start our day.
