A flowing system of twenty-three yogic movements linking body, breath and mind, these trulkhor, or yogic exercises, are used to open the body's pathways of subtle energy. As His Holiness commented: "These yogas improve the flow of energies through the different channels. Once these energy channels function smoothly, meditation practice deepens... and one can enter into the higher Tantric practices."
