More about Lu Jong

The Lu Jong practice is a series of body movements that developed more than 8000 years ago in Tibet. Considered both a secret and a precious teaching, it was originally taught to only 1 person in a generation and the lineage from teacher to student is still intact to this day.

 

Through the combination of position, movement and breath, Lu Jong opens the channels in the body and nourishes the nervous system. It increases mobility in the spine, boosts organ function, increases energy and stamina, and calms the mind. In this way, the practice of Lu Jong helps to cultivate balance on the physical, mental and energetic levels.

  • Group of 5 Movements for balancing the five elements
