    Topic : Tibetan Heart Yoga
    Tibetan Heart Yoga is a unique style of practicing Yoga, continuing a lineage that comes from Lord Naropa, a yogi who lived about 1100 AD. In?Tibetan Heart Yoga we work from the inside, and the outside: from the inside with our thoughts and from the outside with our pranayama(breathing), asana (posture), and ethical practices. We learn how to practice our yoga on the mat, and perfect our yoga off the mat.
