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 (the ‘s’ is silent) in the Aro tradition is a system of 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 – 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.
