Geshe Michael Roach teaching about the theory and history of Lady Niguma's Yoga at the Asia Yoga Conference in May, 2010. Taught in English and interpreted into Mandarin Chinese.
Lady Niguma was a female yogi (‘yogini’) from India who lived a thousand years ago. She was the partner of renowned Indian master and yogi Naropa, and the yoga she created is the first known series specifically designed by a female yoga master.
The series is special because it is designed to work inside and out – both making the body fit and strong, but also systematically targeting the energies inside the body to help us reduce our negative emotions, like anger and confusion, so that we can be happier and more productive in our lives both at home and at work.
