The DAKINIS Subtle Body Training (DSBT) is deeply rooted in ancient Vajrayana teachings on the five elements and five facets of “timeless awareness”. This training is devoted to Therapeutic Mind-Body-Heart Training, which interweaves a set of exercises from Tibetan Wisdom Tradition, meditation, and yoga therapy.

 

Restore the Wholeness

DSBT offers a unique opportunity for students to explore the dimensions of the mind-body-heart system through interdisciplinary tools aimed at healing their relationship to their wholeness.

 

Integrate Dharma Practice

DSBT is designed to assist practitioners (i.e. Vajrayana and Chö) in integrating Buddhism, advanced Vajrayana techniques, body-oriented disciplines, and spiritual psychology into a skillful practice to balance the body, heart, mind, and awareness, and to rediscover our personal authenticity, that is, who and what we truly are.

 

Therapeutic Intervention

DSBT aims to untie the knots in our energy system and open the energy flows of the body. These exercises influence our entire body from the physical to the most subtle and profound energy levels. This integrative approach employs skillful and evidence-based methods for moving toward wholeness on many levels - psychological, physical, spiritual, and interpersonal.

 

The Approach

is pragmatic, accessible and inclusive. We join together a body-oriented, trauma-informed, psychologically-nuanced discipline and yoga therapeutics available in the West with the Subtle Body practice and profound teachings from the ancient Buddhist Wisdom tradition. HOW these tools are provided and integrated has a significant impact on its efficacy.

Testimonials

 

 

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!

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!

Just fantastic to have the videos from the sessions divided into chapters with titles of them, so if you want to focus on specific practices it is very easy to find them. Terrific too if you don't have time to do a full session.
