Tibetan Self-Healing Yoga 

Short Self-Paced Video Course with Christiana Polites
(Livestreamed from Pure Land Farms in April 2023)

Nejang (Tibetan གནས་སྦྱངས་) is a gentle healing yoga practice consisting of twenty four simple physical exercises which use breath work and self-massage to open the channels, balance the internal energies, relax the mind, and nourish the inner organs. With roots in the Kalachakra tradition, such exercises have been prescribed by Tibetan physicians for centuries to improve health and vitality and to support spiritual practice. For the first time ever in the English language, Dr. Nida Chenagtsang, a traditional Tibetan physician and yogic practitioner offers an explanation of these Nejang exercises and their historical, cultural context for the benefit of people of all ages, physical conditions, spiritual backgrounds and levels of experience.
