Lu Jong, Tibetan Healing Yoga
Lu Jong is an old Tibetan practice of the tradition of Tantrayana and Bön. It is based on Tibetan medicine, which assumes that diseases are the consequence of an imbalance of the elements or humours.

In this way our physical health, mental clarity and vitality are improved.

The goal of the exercises is to reduce fear and expectation, to dissolve mental imprints and overcome negative emotions.
