By popular request, I am posting my basic Rune-Yoga lessons on here for educational use!
Rune-Yoga, or Stadhagaldr, is a unique part of the Armanen tradition, per S.A. Kummer, going back to ancient Rune-Masters as a physical and spiritual meditation exercise for both warriors and mystics, and has some parallels in other Indo-European exercise traditions. It is heavily based in Od-energy work. Rune-Yoga postures are practiced standing up, forming the shape of the Rune to manifest its energy flow. The text in this basic course is my own, though heavily inspired by the work of Guido von List, S.A. Kummer, and Karl Spiesberger. Some of what you see here will look very familiar to you if you have read their books, and some things will be new, based on my own insights and experience in the practice.
Rune-Yoga has its own terminology, mostly in Old Norse and Old High German. Postures or Asanas are called Stodhr. Rune Mantras are called Galdr. The Mudras or hand positions are called Handstodhr. The Handstodhr can be practiced in a sitting pose, either silently or while singing the same rune's Galdr, anywhere that practicing full Stadhagaldr is not possible. There are also some more advanced Handstodhr combinations used in a live Rune-Yoga session.
Rune #12: TYR
Meanings: Beginning, creation, excitation, power, success, wisdom, duties fulfilled, art of concealment. Sacrifice and Re-birth into the light - life of the soul, the power to turn situations completely around. Battle, honor, the Phoenix reborn.
TYR is the Rune of Sacrifice, of turnarounds, of victory at all costs, and triumph over death. TYR helps to defeat material obstacles and the fear of physical death. Use TYR for the triumph of spirit over adversity, and to open access to past lives.
TYR-Rune Asana or Stadha: Stand upright, face forward, arms slanted down to the sides by 30 degrees.
TYR-Rune Mantra or Galdr: t t t t t t / Tyr Tyr Tyr / ta te ti to tu / tri tre ter-zer / Ti Tiu Ti-ur Ti-uar Tiuvar / Sig-Tyr
TYR-Rune Mudra or Handstadha: Right index finger up, between left index and middle fingers, which open down.
