In this low-impact yoga course, participants will learn a simple but profound and invigorating practice used by Indo-Tibetan yogis for centuries. This particular set of 24 movements is drawn from the teachings of Dr. Nida Chenagtseng and enriched with knowledge from other tibetan lineages.
In addition to introducing the physical movements of Tibetan Healing yoga, each week will also introduce concepts of the energy body and correlates of health from the perspective of western & tibetan medicine.
– pranayama (9-fold breath & partial vase breathing)
– the exercises of the head & sense organs
– full-body clearing/massage
– savasana meditation
– exercises of the torso
– exercises of the base
– Full practice + refinement
Tasha Schumann is a creator, community-builder, and explorer of the mind. She teaches meditation and yoga in both the Indo-Tibetan and Western traditions.
An award-winning recording artist, her work has been featured widely (from HBO to Netflix, Comedy Central to video games) and she’s been profiled in places like Billboard Magazine, New York Magazine, and VICE.
Tasha has practiced in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition for over a decade. She was given the name Lama Karma Jigmé and authorized to teach by her root teacher, Lama Lena Yeshe Kaytup. In these lineages, she is also a student of Tenzin Bob Thurman, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, Alan Wallace, and many others, while in the Hatha Yoga tradition, she is a student of Michele Loewe, Richard Freeman & Mary Taylor.
Tasha holds a science degree with a specialist in Psychology from the University of Toronto and is also certified to teach Western contemplative modalities like CBRT, MBAR, and MTER.
More than anything, she gets super excited about helping people explore the “WTF-IS-GOING-ON-HERE?!” of reality in whichever way she can – which (among a zillion other things) she does by mentoring artists, teaching contemplative practices, and co-hosting the forthcoming Consciousness Explorer’s Podcast with author and fellow meditation nerd, Jeff Warren.
