Jong dar – physical yogas



Jong Dar is a term that covers all the physical practices of the Aro Tradition of Vajrayana Buddhism. 

Each class is 1 hour and a donation of £3 is requested. This once-a-month session is always on the Sunday after the first Saturday of the month - see calendar for details.


The session may include Ying’khor, sKu-mNyé, walking meditation, and standing meditation. 

The 25 Ying ’khor exercises involve subtle movement in a standing position. Some include visualisation of coloured light energy synchronised with the breath. A few involve sound as vocalised syllables. 

The Aro Tradition walking and standing meditations are connected with the martial art system of Natural Heroism.

sKu-mNyé (pronounced ‘Kum-nye’) in the Aro tradition is a system of repetitive physical exercises which massage the spatial nerves of the subtle, energetic body – giving rise to extraordinary sensations. In these unusual sensations it is possible to find the presence of non-dual awareness - momentary enlightenment.


Aro Ling Cardiff is small, so the classes are small. A maximum of 5 people a session can be accommodated. Hence this is a precious opportunity to learn and practise these physical yogas with individual tuition. 

Booking is required to attend this monthly session.
