About This Course

In this short course, Somānanda Yogi presents a series of exercises firmly rooted in the Indian, Himalayan and South East Asian yogic traditions.

Specifically designed for meditators and those sitting for long periods of time, this series of simple exercises is intended to open the channels and calm the winds, adding more flexibility and comfort to a sitting meditation practice.

At Phakchok Rinpoche’s request, Somānanda teaches these exercises regularly at Mahamudra retreats throughout the world.

In the program, Somānanda Yogi demonstrates each position in a video. Voice-over instruction accompanies each clip. In addition there is a written description of each exercise. Once learned, this series should take about 30-45 minutes to complete.

Aspiring to devote himself to the Buddha Dharma in its entirety, he traveled to Asia where he received teachings in the Mahāyāna and Vajrayāna traditions. Alongside his practice of the Buddha Dharma, Somananda Yogi is a serious practitioner of traditional medicine, yoga and other methods from the Buddhist tradition.
