Yantra Yoga, or the Yoga of Movement is an ancient system of Tibetan yoga based on the text ‘The Union of the Sun and the Moon’, written in the 8th century by the master and translator Vairochana. Chögyal Namkhai Norbu wrote a detailed commentary on the root text and started to transmit this teaching in the West at the beginning of the seventies.

Yantra Yoga is a fundamental method to integrate the profound essence of the Dzogchen Teaching in the three doors (body, voice and mind) of the practitioner. Through positions and movements combined with breathing, one’s energy is coordinated and harmonized so as to let the mind relax and find the authentic balance which is the basis for entering the state contemplation.

The Teachers

John Renshaw is a qualified Yantra Yoga Instructor, who has studied under Chögyal Namkhai Norbu and has been teaching Yantra Yoga for 28 years. John is also trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine and runs a London practice.

Leonardo Isacchi is a newly qualified instructor who was authorised by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu to teach Yantra Yoga in 2016. At present, Leo leads weekly classes of Yantra at Lekdanling, every Monday at 7pm. These classes are open to all, beginners as well as more advance practitioners, and no previous experience of yoga is required.
Leo believes it is very important for each person learning Yantra to be followed closely on a one-to-one basis, so that the person is able, since the very beginning of their practice, to understand correctly the breathing as well as the dynamic aspect of the practice of Yantra Yoga. For this reason, he does his best to follow as closely as possible each participant so that they can gain the maximum benefit from the practice of Yantra.

Introductory workshops

Introductory workshops are suitable for people with no previous experience or for more experienced Yantra Yoga practitioners who wish to refresh their practice.

Introductory and more advanced courses

More in-depth Yantra Yoga classes are available for those who have completed an introductory weekend. Evening classes are held in London and longer retreats in both London and Wales.
