Many different traditions utilize one or several of these forms into their practice. Yoga, Eastern and Western religions, shamanic practices, energy cultivation models, and self-help techniques are but a few of the traditions. There are literally thousands if not millions of different ways and systems, but the six fundamental forms are the foundation of all these systems.
