tiger posture 7


Tiger exercise the throat chakra (chakra 5), and is positive in its nature. The tiger roams the deep jungle of human knowledge and masters all views, from extreme ones to those commonly accepted as permament truths. Practicing this form promotes creativity and the ability to think thoroughly without obstacles.


  • Change one's paradigm -- Return to the middle way (Đổi vũ trụ quan -- Hợp nhất trung đạo)
  • Comprehend the extreme views -- Return to the middle way (Thấu suốt đoạn kiến -- Hợp nhất trung đạo)
  • Comprehend the unchanging views -- Return to the middle way (Thấu suốt thuờng kiến -- Hợp nhất trung đạo)
  • Return to the source without obstacles (Qui nguyên vô ngại)

Essential points

  • Imitate the quickness, constant moving and fearlessness of the tiger.
