Jong Dar is a term that covers all the physical practices of the Aro Tradition of Vajrayana Buddhism. Each class is 1 hour. The session includes Ying’khor, sKu-mNyé, walking meditation, and standing meditation. The 25 Ying ’khor exercises involve subtle movement in a standing position. Some include visualisation of coloured light energy synchronised with the breath. A few involve sound as vocalised syllables. sKu-mNyé (pronounced ‘Kum-nye’) in the Aro tradition is a system of 111 repetitive physical exercises which massage the spatial nerves of the subtle, energetic body – giving rise to extraordinary sensations. In these unusual sensations it is possible to find the presence of non-dual awareness—rigpa—momentary enlightenment. It offers a range of movements, from simple and gentle to demanding and vigorous – so there is something for everyone. All are welcome whatever age or level of fitness. A wonderful form of exercise that is refreshing and invigorating.

The Aro gTér is a Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhist tradition concerned with transforming our experience of everyday being. We aim to engender cheerful courage, perceptive consideration, graciousness, sincere determination, creativity, natural gallantry, and spaciousness. Our teachers are not monks or nuns, but rather ordained Tantrikas who live quite ordinary lives. Aro gTér teachings come to us from a lineage of enlightened women, including a female Tantric Buddha, Yeshé Tsogyel, and the visionary Lama, Aro Lingma. The Vajrayana path is suited to those who use their everyday circumstances as the path to realisation and who appreciate humour.
