Nikolay Zhuravlev. STADAGALDR and RUNAS YOGA. book was Issued 12 october 2011 year.


The history of runes’ yoga or Stadagaldr began in 1930 s. It was a period of interest for forgotten written languages and all mysterious things. There were many people all over Europe who learnt ancient runes’ signs.

Among  investigators there were not only linguists who considered the runes to be only unusual language of the past and not only mystics who worshiped the runes fanatically as the greatest heritage of old times but there were also practical  people who tried to find the way of using runes in their modern life .

The famous followers of Gvido von List, the German scientists Fridrikh Bernhard Marby and Zigfrid Adolf Kummer chose the practical way.

They both supposed that runes were an instruction on meditative gymnastics like oriental hattha yoga and this instruction was left for us by our Northern ancestors.

The philosophical conception of Marby and Kummer was based on the real archaeological finds. These are ancient German magic figures of alrauns which served as charms and the pictures on gold horns from Gallehuss.  The figures of alrauns are statues made of bone. These statues stand in the poses of runes. The gold horn found in Gallehuss in the South Utland in 1639 is covered with carving.

This carving depicts people’s figures in odd poses imitating an ancient written language. The second horn which looked like the first one was found there in 1734. The gold horns Gallehus caused the development of the runes’ yoga.

Marby believed that with help of “runes’ gymnastics” or”runes’ dance” we can understand the spheres which are not available for common people’s perception, we can contact with Supreme Gods and influence on space processes. For achieving it we should pose imitating runes’ written language and sing the names of runes so if we were Austrian “Joddles.”

Kummer also believed that runes’ magic allowed to rule energetic streams going from the Space. For doing it you should stand in correct runa pose and tune your perception with help of special sounds or galdor. He was also sure that special runic gestures were very important.

Of course, Marby and Kummer did not invent using of certain poses and gestures and singing and repeating runes. But they were the first people who discovered forgotten tradition of magic of the North.

The tradition of galdor goes back to very old German-Scandinavian history. It is an active magic technique which helps magician to change the inner world or the external world according to his will. The term “Galdr” comes from the word meaning raven’s cry or raven’s song. The myth tells about two ravens which voices were listened by Odin.. Odin wanted to know the greatest mysteries of the World.

The certain poses or “asanas” and symbolic gestures-“mudras” are used in any religion, magic school or esoteric all over the world. For example, Christian’s hands pose when they pray meditative poses in the East and magic passes of the South-American shamans.

Later, in the period of Hitler’s regime, Marby and Kummer’s conception and the scientists’ followers were proclaimed outlaw. But some time later, after the Second World War, the doctrine of runes’ yoga revived again. Nowadays many hundreds thousands of people practice Stadhagaldr for improving their health.

Of course, runes’ yoga has greatly changed for 70 years since its birth. The terms changed, now the runes’ songs are called “mantras” and the runes’ gestures are called “mudras”. The practical part of Stadhagaldr has changed too. Some new, more effective complexes of exercises were created.

The best example is the author’s system by Nikolay Zhuravlev which is being taught in the educational centre “Assgard”. This system includes some elements of classical runes’ yoga.

.received his first Knowledge of runes from his father, so his way of life was not chosen by chance, it was destined from Heaven. After many years of practicing he created his universal system of tuning to the magic of runes, having adapted the Northern tradition for contemporary men. Hundreds of his disciples not only in Russia but all over the world master the mysteries of art runes, do runes’ yoga using his methods and give this Knowledge to people.

              Runes’ yoga.

Runes’ yoga clears energetic channels helping to tune to runes’ energy. When you exercise, your body becomes flexible and plastic, psychophysical blocks, muscles’ tensions go away. Nervous, hormone, cardial systems’ work becomes normal. Sanitary effect occurs after the first training. Of course, if you need a stable healing effect, you should do runes’ yoga regularly, there are no any contra-indications for doing runes’ yoga. It is important that when you do runes’ yoga, your treatment goes in complex with your training activity.

It is recommended to do warm up for 5-10 minutes before training for making your body ready and taking tension away. You should also warm your hands up, opening your palms maximum for taking energy easier. You do not need any special uniform for doing runes’ yoga but your clothes must be comfortable and it must not prevent you from moving.

Each runa of runes’ yoga consists of three components –a pose, a mudra and a mantra.

Imitating runa with your body(Stadha) or /and with your fingers, runa’s mantra, a person takes runa’s power and all its characteristics. These exercises will allow to activate runes’energy, to give it right direction and to harmonize your biosphere.

This complex consists of 24 poses, each pose corresponds to its own runa. You can remember poses very soon, and you can do the easily. You can also do not all complex but some separate runes. For example, you can do only runa of the day. You should do each exercise for 2 minutes minimum.

The initial position for all runes’ poses is following: legs at the width of shoulders, feet are parallel, arms are lowered along the body. Teeth are a little clostd, tongue is turned back to soft palate. You should breathe deeply with your stomach, your stiach goes up when you breathe in, the lower part of stomach is pulled in when you breathe out. You should breathe in through your nose and breathe out through your mouth. The rhythm of breathing must be natural. You should relax maximum. When you do exercises, tense must be only when your physical potentialities are already in limit. Try to stretch your legs and arms maximum. This static stretching serves to recovery of tissues and their structure. The static stretching is more effective and safer method than the dynamic stretching, from the point of vien of medicine. If you feel pain while doing exercises, it means that your energetic channels are blocked and energy can’t go through them. If you feel vibration in your body, it means that energetic channels are being cleared. These sensations are correct and natural. Your pain will decrease after every new training, and you will do exercises easier.

Runa’s mantra is usually the name of runa but sometimes, the names of the worlds or the names, of the Gods are used. Sometimes some sounds which are phonetic equivalent of runa are used. Each runa has its own corresponding mantra which has its own unique rhythm, power, runa’s mantra, your body begins to resound with runa’s frequency. After doing the first complex of exercises which consists of 24 poses it is recommended to do runes’ mudras.

                    The complex of runes’ poses.

    Fehu is a space fire. This runa is used for increasing personal power and it is also used as a setting down to the Egregor of runa. It helps to attract people, things and events.

Fehu makes runes’ magic available so it is recommended to begin your exercises with Fehu even if you don’t plan to do all runes’ complex but you want to do only one runa,

Stand straight with your feet at the width of shoulders. Your crown goes up. Stretch your arms forward, your right palm is at the level of face, your left palm is a little higher; your left palm is about 20 santimetres higher than your right palm. Concentrate on your crown. Your body is being filled with energy and the space around you is being filled with power. Imagine that a dome is being formed around you. Then concentrate on your palms. Feel that your energy goes from the upper parts of your fingers to the centre of your  palms and it goes in when you breathe in. Energy goes through your shoulders and goes down when you breathe out. This energy mixes with energy going through your head. You will feel an energetic pole going through your body. Say the mantra”Fei” imagining the runa Fehu. When you finish doing this exercise you should put your arms palms up and put your hands on your solar plexus. Then shake your hands and feet throwing off your strain.   

URUZ is a runa of power. It is used for ruling energy. It increases capacity for work.

Uruz is an energy of a new undertaking and any new movement. It helps us to understand what, when and why we really need. This knowledge gives us stability and it helps us to pass the power of URUZ through the body. The power of URUZ will always help to invent something new and realize all ideas. It will help you to develop yourself and go forward. URUZ symbolizes persistence and stamina. It is considered that URUZ or is a graphic symbol of wild extinct bull which looked like a buffalo more than 2 meters high. Its name was “aurokh”. It was spread in the Northern Europe till the middle of the 17th century. Its meat was used as food, its tendons were used for making arms, and its skin was used for making clothes. Aurokh was a bread-winner for the Northern peoples. Like a sacred cow Audumla from the Scandinavian myths which nursed the giant Imir with its milk, Aurokh and its runa are the symbols of unlimited power of the Earth.

     It is recommended to say the additional formula-spell:

  The animal power is waking up in me.

Thurisaz help to break all negative connections with the past. So it helps to increase energetic potential greatly because the relationships without harmony ruin people. The relationships with your close people and people who important for you will never break, they will be only corrected by runa, and negative aspects will disappear.

Energy of the runa Thurisaz restores the energetic body of a person, clears and defends a person in the future, it brings harmony and takes all obstacles away .

The name of the runa “Thurisaz” comes from the word “Turs”. Turs were the giants in the Northern myths. They symbolized an indomitable energy which existed before the Space birth. Turs were a powerful strength which defended an order. Their destructive energy was aimed only for removal of enemies of order and laws. If you want you can say the spell which will help to tune to the runa Turisaz better:

The energy of the Earth goes through your feet when you breathe in, it goes up slowly through your legs and your spine. When you breathe out, this energy goes through your right arm back to your body and then to the ground. You should try to feel the stream of energy of the Earth which goes through all your body- the energy goes up and down at the same time.

Say the mantra “Tauss” with vibration. At the level of your stomach imagine an energetic ring hanging in the air. The ring begins to rotate around you and around its axis slowly. All positive things remain and all negative things ruin. All diseases, negative relationships, negative emotions, everything bad goes away from your life.

The ring goes on rotating around you, it goes into depth of the Earth and then goes up to the unlimited depths of the Space. Thus, it goes through all your body scanning and working up all information which it scans from your energetic body. Sometimes the ring can move slowly or even stop- it indicates that there are some deformations in the energetic cocoon and it is necessary to smooth it out.

You should finish this exercise with little breathing gymnastics. Don’t forget to shake your arms and legs in turn for additional muscles’ relaxation.

Ansuz(Ass) is connection with the Genius of the Earth, increasing the level of consciousness .

Strength of mind.

It symbolizes the strength of consciousness and mind and primordial order which image is printed in every body’s subconsciousness deeply. Ansuz makes this perfect memory of the body free, and a process of coming back to the ideal condition begins. That is why this runa is in the group of systematic runes. The energy of the runa Ansuz is a bridge between us and unlimited wisdom and strength of the Genius of the Earth.

This runa is directly connected with Asses, the Supreme Gods in the German- Scandinavian Pantheon. Asses symbolized Kindness, Justice and wisdom. For work on the runa Ansuz you should say the spell:

I am united with the Earth’s consciousness.

My thought is action.

The source of Strength

Is woken up in me.

For doing this exercise correctly you should stand straight, your feet together. Your left leg is put to the side so that you could touch the floor with your toe. You should transfer your weight to your right leg. Your left arm is stretched to the side parallel to your left leg and your right arm is along your body.

You should concentrate on your right leg. When you breathe in, the energy comes in through your right foot and goes up passing through your hip. The energy fills all your body, goes to the right cerebral hemisphere activating it. When you breathe out, the energy is thrown through your left arm and left leg. You breathe in through your right side and breathe out through your left side. Sing the mantra “ONSS”. Concentrate on your brain, feel your connection with the consciousness of our Planet. You must have the same sensations in the both cerebral hemispheres.

 Stand still and do some breathing exercises. Then shake off your arms and legs for taking strain away.

 RAIDO(REID)—is a runa of way and intuition.

Raido is an energy of intuitive movement. When your intuition is switched on, all your doubts disappear, and knowledge of right way comes instead of it. Everything is easy and righ on this way. It is recommended to do this runa’s pose in the morning for getting necessary impulse for all day.

Raido symbolizes a wheel with eight spokes which personifies a cyclic way of the sun and the moon. It is a symbol of recurrence of movement and punctually calculated actions.

This runa is often used in fighting techniques when it is necessary to switch off consciousness for spontaneous movement of the body. It is also used in various rituals for magic ruling the circumstances in person’s favour.

Feel the real sense of Raido in a special tuning spell:

 A wheel of time rotates.

Everything repeats.

Everything comes back.

I know my predestination.

I go forward to my aim.

KANO (KEN) is a fire. Increasing activity. Healing yourself and other people.

Kano is a clearing strength of fire. It is an energy of inner light. It is a symbol of knowledge and mind. This runa treats body and consciousness, it makes your thoughts and makes your body good. It recovers your power quickly. All your fears and worries disappear in the divine fire of KANO. A person gets self- confidence. The name Kano comes from the ancient German word KAUNA –“torch”. KEN also associates with the English word “can”. But we should also remember that in the ancient Scandinavian language KAUN meant “ulcer”, “illness”. We can make a conclusion that in old time this runa’s ability to cure various diseases was used more often than its ability to open an inner creative potential of a person.

Before doing exercise say the spell trying to realize its depth:

I see a Fire.

I am standing on a fire pyramid.

A fire is going through my body.

I can cure.

Stand straight, your feet together, your spine is stretched maximum. Hands up a little above your head. Imagine that you put hands on fire pole with palms on the pole. Concentrate on the lower part of your stomach and say the mantra “KAY”.

Feel the fire pole becomes larger, so you are inside of this pole. The fire inside of you is growing. A raging fire is swallowing you up. It is burning all your diseases, fears, negative programs, your tireness. Breathe with your chest actively for making this effect stronger.

Breathe in deeply. When you breathe out, imagine that a black smoke goes out of your crown. The flame continues burning, and the smoke becomes lighter with your each breathe out. Go on doing this exercise until the smoke becomes white colour.

After that it is recommended to do some traditional elements of breathing gymnastics. Then throw down the strain from your legs and arms’ muscles.

The name of this runa means “gift”, and it is pronounced “gift” in the English language so far. The mystic art of mutual gift uniting two parties is on base of runa Gebo’s activity. It is depicted in its graphic.

Gebo gives a person a special gift when this person is really ready to get it. It is a gift to come to terms with the surroundings and sympathize with other people. It is a gift of great intuition and great sensitiveness which allows to “read” people like an opened book.

Space energy comes through your left palm and goes down to the ground along your right leg.

At the same time the energy of the Earth goes up through your left leg along your right arm, it goes up to infinity, uniting with the energy of the space in your solar plexus.

Runes of the second att.

 HAGALAZ(HAGAL). Defence from negative influence. Inevitable changes.

Hagalaz is one of the most difficult runes. It can bring into your life some serious changes which can often be not desirable. But this runa doesn’t ruin only, it discovers new opportunities for your spiritual development. It brings elemental events which are out of human’s control.

 If this powerful and dangerous energy influences you, your inner harmony and your desire to get knowledge using this situation can help you. You should not be sorry about your past which is going away. The name of this runa comes from the word “hail”. Hail is a symbol of elements of air and water. The ancient people ,believed that quartz crystals came from hardened space hail. These quartz crystals were able to keep and direct energy.

“Hagalaz” associates not noly with hail but also with rainbow. Rainbow is a bridge between the Gods’ world and the Humans’ world. The God Heimdal guarded this bridge. The red colour in the rainbow symbolized furious fire element. You can pass through it only if you clear your consciousness completely. Otherwise, this divine flame will not allow you to go up the sky and sometimes this flame can kill an unworthy man. But if you overcome all obstacles go through all ordeals, clear negative energies, you can get a stroung defence of the Assgard’s Gods and an ability to change space around you thanks to this runa.

 This is a tuning spell for this runa:

        I can see a rainbow.
