Overview

More than 10,000 years ago in the ancient Himalayan Mountains, an ancestral civilization committed itself to the study and development of the Science and Art for Eternal Youth. A form kept in close secrecy for millennia is now revealed for the first time in this practical and dynamic guidebook. The teachings focus on cultivating the powers of the individual's mind, the harmony of movements, and the discovery of internal potentialities as the ultimate force of self-healing to extend one's lifetime.

Comparable to a cross between yoga and tai chi, this ancient Tibetan system is designed to increase vitality, balance, and Inner Energy. The Secret Art consists of slow and fluid movements that improve coordination and strengthen equilibrium between body and mind through various breathing and movement techniques. In particular, Seamm-Jasani is known for its combination of relaxation, active motion, and breathing exercises.

    A wonderful book!

    I recommend this book especially after experiencing countless positive changes in my own person after learning these techniques. I have felt a notable positive change in my physical and psychic state. I have changed the way to face the conflicts that I need to solve, with my friends, family and job. I feel much stronger and more resolute. I like to feel that little by little I am able to harmonize my mind and my body, I feel no longer broken-hearted or anxious, I go calm, step by step with my life. This Art is wonderful!
