Tibetan yoga is a hidden treasure at the heart of the Tantric Buddhist tradition. In addition to meditations, visualisations and practices for the breath and body, it includes elements rather less familiar to yoga initiates in the West, including sexual yoga, dream yoga or lucid dreaming, and yoga practices enhanced by psychoactive plant substances.
Join Ian Baker, author of Tibetan Yoga: Principles and Practices (2019), alongside Tibetan Buddhist teacher and traditional doctor Nida Chenagtsang, for an exploration into this lesser-known tradition.
