Lu Jong is an ancient Tibetan practice of Healing Yoga. It encompasses a series of body movements that are easy to learn and have manifold positive effects on our body, energy and mind.
A case in point is a Lu Jong exercise that immediately lifts your spirits and alleviates depression and sadness. Practice of this movement will lead to laughter and cheerfulness in no time at all.
Lu Jong movements are beneficial on an energetic level because they release blockages, thus opening our body channels and chakras.
On a physical level, in keeping with Tibetan medicine, particular attention is paid to the spine. The spine is considered the energy supplier and battery of our body. Therefore, it needs to be strong and in balance. Given our sedentary lifestyle with low physical activity, our bodies can truly benefit from this.
Lu Jong also boosts the immune system and gives our body strength and flexibility. Furthermore, it increases our inner warmth, thus fueling our metabolism as well.
Lu Jong helps us to be strong, happy and aware human beings.
Lu Jong - a self-massage of our body channels
The human body has roughly 72,000 channels through which energy flows. These channels can be likened to the power cables that provide electricity in our homes. Just as the devices in our homes need to be supplied with electricity, the organs in our bodies need energy. To that end, it is very important that we look after our body channels, which are often blocked. The practice of Lu Jong enables us to remove these blockages. By assuming a particular physical position in tandem with movement, we apply pressure to relevant points in our bodies and subsequently reduce it again. The effect is the same as acupuncture or acupressure. The energy can flow freely again, helping us heal and stay healthy.
Lu Jong is balance for our mind
Lu Jong gives balance not only to our bodies, but also to our minds. Breathing constitutes the bridge between body and mind, and is consciously applied when carrying out Lu Jong movements. The process of inhaling, pausing and exhaling is synchronized with each movement. The combination of breathing and movement is the source of Lu Jong’s meditative nature, which, in turn, leads to a calmer and clearer mind. Lu Jong helps us achieve a relaxed, balanced and simultaneously highly alert state of mind.
The term «Lu Jong»
The literal translation of Lu Jong is body training or body refinement. The famous Tibetan doctor and teacher Tulku Lobsang plays a major role in the history of Lu Jong as it is practiced today. Tulku Lobsang brought Lu Jong from Tibet to the Western world. Between the age of six and twenty-four, he received lessons and teachings from a host of venerable masters in various Tibetan monasteries. Tulku Lobsang’s profound knowledge is invaluable.
Since 2000, Tulku Lobsang has traveled all over the world and passed on his precious cultural heritage.
The history of Lu Jong goes back more than 8,000 years old and was passed down orally from master to master.
Lu Jong and I
I trained to become a Lu Jong teacher in 2018. Upon passing my exams in January 2019, I received the initiation into Lu Jong by Tulku Lobsang and now have the privilege of teaching this Tibetan Healing Yoga. I see it as a privilege because it allows me to pass on knowledge that draws on thousands of years of experience and wisdom of monks and hermits.
Since discovering Lu Jong, I have practiced it almost daily and am impressed by its profound effects. I no longer feel cold thanks to specific Lu Jong exercises that increase my inner warmth. I have more energy and rarely feel tired. Lu Jong has become a valuable source of positive energy for me, which I am deeply grateful for.
