The 5 Tibetan Rites represent a great way to keep your body in shape when you have limited time for a physical workout or limited space for a complete yoga routine. You can easily do the exercises in the space at the foot of the bed in most hotel rooms. We use the 5 Tibetans as a warm up for our morning yoga or body workout.
The 5 Tibetan Rejuvenation Rites take a minimum of daily time and effort but can greatly increase physical strength and suppleness as well as mental focus. Even newcomers to yoga will experience the 5 Tibetan rejuvenation rites’ liberating effect on the energetic power of the human body and mind. Regular practice of these exercises relieves muscular tension and stress, improves respiration and digestion, benefits the cardiovascular system and leads to deep relaxation and well being. The 5 Tibetan Rejuvenation Rites can be a powerful vehicle not only for enlivening the senses but also for generating and harnessing vital energy for self transformation.
How do I begin to benefit from the 5 Tibetan Rejuvenation Rites?
If you are not used to exercise or have not been formally introduced to yoga techniques of breathing and relaxation, then your first tip is to start out slowly. Start by performing
one to three repetitions of each of the 5 tibetan rejuvenation rites one time each day. Pay attention to what your body is telling you and do not strain or force any position that causes pain that indicates possible injury. A little stiffness is perfectly okay but really you should start out slow enough not to have any physical disabilities the following day.
Where should I perform the 5 Tibetan Rites
Anywhere you have room is fine. To prevent any discomfort from a hard surface, make sure to use a carpet, towel, yoga mat or padding.
What is the best time of day to perform the 5 Tibetan Rites
The entire series of movements may be performed 2 to 3 times per day. As will all forms of holistic body work, sunrise and sunset are great times to be honoring your body with
physical work. These are the best times to start your practice, but you may work them into your day as you see fit.
How may time should I repeat each exercise?
21 times each is the goal you should be working towards for each of the 5 tibetan rejuvenation rites. When you first begin, try to do 1 or 3 repetitions of each movement. After a week, try to do 3 reps, then pause and try 3 more. You will certainly feel stronger in some of the movements than others. If you have trouble performing a compete set of 21, then try and break it down into 3 sets of 7 reps with a pause between sets. Once you’ve mastered 21 repetitions of each exercise, you don’t need to go on to more repetitions. These exercises are for restoring energy, not necessarily building strength. If you feel great after doing 21 reps of each exercise, then add another session later in the day to perform another set of 21 reps each.
What is the recommend breathing pattern?
We recommend a specific breathing pattern to follow with each exercise. If you feel tired or light headed while performing these movements, make sure you are not holding your breath.
