The concept of the exercises “Five Tibetans” is a great way to keep your body in good shape. These rites were conceived 2500 years ago by the monks of Tibet, who are known for their vitality and longevity. It is believed that these exercises fill your body with refreshing youthful energy, and give you the strength to feel better during the day and achieve much more.
The five Tibetan exercises activate and stimulate the seven key chakras, which in turn stimulate all the endocrine glands in your body. These glands secrete certain hormones that are important for the proper functioning of your body. The five Tibetan rites will also help you enhance immunity and maintain a perfect youthful look.
The movements that the five Tibetans cover should be done two or three times a day. It is best if you do them once in the morning and once in the evening (but not before bedtime) and once again during the day when you will find time.
The rites should be done in a correct order from the first one to the fifth one. Do all the exercise the same number of times. You should repeat every rite 21 times. Start with repeating it 3 times, than the next week 5 times, then 7 and so on until you reach 21.
It is recommended that you take breaks between the exercises. After each one, stop,
put your hands on the hips, inhale through the nose and exhale through the mouth. Repeat this twice.
Stand upright and spread your arms so that they are parallel to the floor. Your palms should be facing down. Spin around clockwise until you become a little dizzy. One full circle counts as one repetition. When you finish the exercise, lay your hands in front of your face and look at your fingers.
This exercise will improve your sense of balance.
Rite No. 2
Lie on the floor, stretch out and lay your arms around the body. Put your hands on the floor and stretch your legs one at the other. Inhale through your nose and slowly lift your legs and at the same time your head, until your feet are normally placed on the floor, and at the same time your chin should not touch your chest.
While doing this exercise, do not bend your knees and do not lift your body out of the floor. At the same time, lift your head and legs. Inhale through your nose while lifting your head and legs, and exhale through your mouth while returning your legs to the starting position of the floor.
Rite no. 3
Kneel on your knees, bend your feet by repositioning the front of the ground. Place your palms on the back of the thighs, just below the buttocks, and fold your head so that your beard touches your chest. Inhale through the nose and slowly bend the upper part of the body backwards. Let your head go as far back as possible. While returning to your original position, exhale through your mouth.
Sit on the floor with your arms near the body. With your arms rely on the floor. It is important to put your arms right next to your body and your legs should be stretched forward.
Inhale through your nose and lift your body up. By doing that, bend your legs on your knees while your feet are firmly on the floor. Arms remain in the same position. Let your head go as far back as possible. The goal is to get to a position in which your body is in parallel position with the floor.
Exhale through your mouth while returning to the original position.
Rite no. 5
Lie on your stomach, put your hands on the floor beside your shoulders and lift up the upper part of your body with your hands. Lean the front of your feet on the floor, and your head should be leaned backwards to your back. Hands and feet should be at a distance of 60 cm from one another.
Inhale through your nose and lift up the buttocks, and simultaneously bend the head to the inside until it touches your chest. Lift your buttocks up as much as you can to get your body shaped like a triangle.
Again exhale thorough your mouth while returning to your original position.
After you have completed the last Tibetan rite lie down on the floor, sprawl out and relax as much as you can. Allow you to experience a pleasant feeling and breathe slowly. Stay in this position for a few minutes.
