Subtle body training TESTIMONIALS


What Do Students Say About Dakini's Whisper

Subtle Body Training?

Thank you for offering this opportunity to really dig deep into this subtle body aspect.  While I do find it challenging and somewhat counterintuitive for my strong headspace, I experience it in a way that generates inspiration for traveling into the unknown and curiosity about the vast potentiality of it.



Thank you for your steadfast openness and compassion, and for the care that you put into developing and teaching the intensive. Connecting the movement practices with the wisdom dakinis and human dakinis and their respective energies helped me feel more of a connection with the teachings. Also, I loved the syllabus with beautiful artwork and bits of poetry. Being able to see an overarching structure helps me feel that I can understand at least well enough to start putting some of it into practice.  And I very much appreciated your invitation to use our imagination - even if I can't really feel in my body what you are suggesting I can sometimes imagine it, and that seems like a start.



 I enjoyed the Intensive.  My main take away is that I’d like to connect with regular practice that incorporates the work we explored. I feel like the reaching, snapping and opening of the channels have begun to free some energy in my body that I’ve struggled to move, and I’d like to continue to see how I could expand the work.

I find Khandro-la's teaching of the Subtle Body Training a joyful, subtle, pervasive route into myself, my energy, my vitality, my stuck places, my being so much more than I think I am or can do. The intensive was a fantastic opportunity to dive deeper into this work and has left me wanting to delve even deeper into this incredible offering.



It was a very special gathering, indeed! I so appreciate the profound view and deep motivation from which Khandro-la presents the subtle body exercises. Also, Khandro-la's emphasis on joy and on dancing and on bringing everything to the path further expands the practice in a wonderful way. The exercises themselves were presented clearly way and there was always room to ask questions.

​I just wanted to share my gratitude for the SBT -- it has been a wonderful experience! I really liked the focus on the experience and experimentation. I also appreciated the composition of each session with a focus on a specific Dakini. I found the group practice very helpful with the specific commentaries, and the dancing liberating! Thank you for offering the training - a real gift!

It has been a wondrous enrichment to my practice to participate in the Subtle Body Yoga Class with Lama Choying. Experiencing Vajrayana principles with yoga, song and dance has deeply supported my ability to embody my deity practices, and to more deeply understand Vajrayana concepts and teachings. The experiences stay with me throughout the course of my day and I find myself, as examples, exploring the elements, or reconnecting with my central channel, before going to sleep, while walking outside, or in the midst of a difficult emotion.


Lama Choying and her teachings have been extremely supportive, kind, funny, and culturally relevant to this white Western woman with a love for things Tibetan and Buddhist. She has also helped me modify the exercises based on my medical needs and ability. My body feels far more alive, engaged, and peaceful. My practice is richer, and my ability to understand what I am reading and learning in book study and in my personal learning is greatly enhanced. I highly recommend these series to any serious Vajrayana practitioner who wishes to live the concepts and principles of Buddhism in the course of their daily life.



Choying Khandro teaches with great heart and great insight. She approaches the Dharma with simplicity and devotion and cuts through to the heart of the teachings in a fresh, exciting way. Her teachings on the profound path of Ganden Chod and Machig's Ear-Whispered lineage are contemporary while maintaining the rigor of their ancient origins.



Integrating the Subtle Body Training into my meditations has helped me to more deeply embody and feel the practices in my subtle body.  This is much more than a set of exercises. The movements come from ancient traditions and include holding different meditative views while moving.  Choying’s joyful way of teaching builds confidence, capability, integration, and love of practice.



I was looking for this many years! The subtle body practice is a part of my Dharma Journey. And I find it here. With my Beloved Teacher. Choying, every lesson with her brings me deep spiritual insights. She gives a lot of useful practical ideas, which you can adapt to any level of Buddhist practice and physical activity... Every online meeting it is also an amazing connection with a community from all over the world. It has a family-like atmosphere, a lot of joy and support. And I just love Choying’s brilliant sense of humor!

I get the distinct experience of feeling body/mind having been re-calibrated, re-arranged - the result is like a smoothness of energy flow and an at ease mind integrated. I also go the impression that these days with all the imbalances in nature that a conscious re-calibration becomes very necessary because it is more out of whack than usual and more resistant. Thank you.



After three years of ngondro, my body had started to feel more like a Tara statue instead of a living breathing one.  A dharma friend encouraged me to sign up for this training and, to my amazement, it took only a few sessions to feel the energy flowing in my body again!  The exercises and movements are powerful, playful and effective.   Looking forward to continuing to dance with the dakinis under Choying Khandro’s loving and skillful guidance. 



Choying compassionately dances the mandala of body, speech, and mind into our practice. Pointing out with wisdom grounded in experience, the essence of practice. She makes these cultural and ancient wisdom traditions relevant and available for us to embody. In my experience, her approach of combining body and mind awareness practice is unique and essential for experiencing freedom.



I am a trauma-focused bodywork therapist and have been pleasantly surprised to discover how closely aligned Choying's subtle body yoga techniques are with my somatic trainings. Her focus on being present with and befriending "what is" within the body while engaging in various movements has accelerated my own physical and psychological healing. Each live session is interactive, and each is recorded to provide a wonderful support for the subsequent daily practice. I highly recommend this series to anyone wishing to improve their physical and emotional health!
