Nejang (Tib. གནས་སྦྱངས་) is a Tibetan healing yoga practice that literally means ‘cleaning the energy sites of the body.’ It consists of simple breath work, physical exercises, and self-massage designed to improve the function of the sense organs and inner organs, balance the internal energy, open the channels, and relax the mind. It has roots in the Tibetan Buddhist Kalachakra tradition and has been prescribed to patients by Tibetan physicians for centuries. In this three part series with visiting teacher Erik Jampa, we will discuss the fundamentals of Tibetan Medicine, including the channels and energies of the subtle body, and explore the key points of posture and breath used in Nejang. We will then practice the 24 Nejang exercises and explore their diagnostic and therapeutic indications.
