Lu Jong is an ancient Tibetan practice from the Buddhist Tantrayana tradition. Rooted in principles of Tibetan medicine, it is a series of movements developed for the purpose of self-healing.

With this practice, you will be able to release blockages on the physical, energetic, and mental levels. The result is that you can effectively combat disease and imbalances, transform negative emotions, and increase your vitality.

Lu Jong is accessible to people of all ages, abilities, and beliefs. The combination of rhythmic movements and breathing gently massages the body, targeting particular energetic points.

Lu Jong Level 1 Practice includes:

  • The Five Elements Movements (for opening the spine and general balancing)
  • The Five Body Parts Movements (for the musculoskeletal system)
  • The Five Vital Organ Movements (for improving the function of the kidneys, heart, lungs, spleen, and liver)
  • The Six Conditions Movements (for helping common imbalances such as digestion, senses, mood, and body temperature)
  • Two Movements for Sleep and Wakefulness (for shifting your energy quickly)
