The term, vajra, is an ancient and deeply powerful one that conveys images of strength, indestructibility and force. The symbolism and spiritual background of the vajra make it an important element in a number of different religions and cultures.
Vajra is also a type of yoga that is slower paced than many other variants. It encourages practitioners to focus on their breathing and to slowly discover the spirituality they are looking for without too many sudden physical exertions. It is a deeply meditative style of yoga that encourages the individual to engage in embodied mindfulness so they may become more deeply rooted in the present moment.
