Movements

The Lu Jong Level 1 practice is composed of 4 groups of movements, plus two additional exercises.

The first group, The Five Elements Movements, balance and purify the space, earth, wind, fire and water elements in the body. If the elements are in disharmony, diseases of the wind, bile and phlegm humors result, as well as the aggravation of negative emotions. Therefore, this group of movements addresses these issues.

The second group is The Five Body Parts Movements. These exercises improve the mobility of the head, joints, spine and hips. They open blockages and increase strength and the range of motion of the body.

The third group is The Five Vital Organs Movements. These exercises work with the kidneys, heart, lungs, spleen and liver. Practicing these movements improves the functioning of these organs by removing blockages in the channels that supply them with blood, oxygen, vital nutrients and energy.

The fourth group is The Six Conditions Movements. These exercises address common ailments such as indigestion, tumors, water retention, low body temperature, incontinence, depression and improve the five senses.

Finally, there are two side exercises that address difficulty falling asleep and difficulty remaining alert.

Tulku Lobsang’s Lu Jong practice was developed with deep insight and careful consideration for the natural flow and progression of the body in order to create an ultimate balance. The movements are meant to be done in a specific order and as a whole set. For example, The Five Elements Movements should always be practiced as a group, in the order in which they are taught. It is not wise to pick just one or two of the exercises and practice them alone. Doing this, one will unknowingly create more imbalance and work counter to the aims of the practice.
