The traditional Yantra Yoga sequence is a full practice in itself and includes a group of exercises designed to loosen the various joints of the body.

Suggested modifications are given to facilitate aspects that may be difficult to perform.

Beyond easing the body into the practice of Yantra Yoga, these warm-ups are designed to help make the joints more flexible while assuring the correct position and alignment of the spine, which is paramount for performing the movements and for the smooth and harmonious flow of breathing.

Rest for just a moment, pausing your breath before inhaling and gradually rising back up to the starting position. Expand your chest well, slowly and fully filling it with air from the bottom to the top, finishing the inhalation when you are fully upright again. Repeat this phase for a total of three times to complete all nine phases of the Nine Purification Breathings. Applying this method will help you purify, coordinate, and harmonize your breathing and your energy. As a consequence, your mind can more easily relax in its natural condition and be present and alert.
