When it comes to health advertisements & promotions, I admit to being a skeptic. I’m fed up of diet plans & anti -ageing adverts none of which seem to work
But there’s something about the 5 Tibetan rites. There’s really no way around it, Ive noticed definite changes in my health & wellbeing. The rites are said to be over 2,500 years old, and a type of yoga. They only take 10-15 minutes to complete— also fantastic for those with busy lives. After setting myself a 28 day challenge to do the 5 Tibetan Rites each morning this is what I found…..1– weight loss (just by doing 10 of each exercise every morning for 28days, I lost just over half a stone) 2-improved memory ( my memory actually got sharper) 3-physical strength 4– A feeling of alertness (feeling clear, awake and less sluggish) 5– An enhanced sense of general wellbeing. The Tibetan Rites are also called the Fountain of youth as they’re supposed to slow down the aging process, which is why they’re also known as the Five Rites of Rejuvenation.
HOW THE FIVE TIBETAN RITES SHOULD BE DONE
Each exercise should eventually be done 21 times, but if you’re new to exercise its better to start of with about 3 of each at first and increase the repetitions slowly over time.
1-First Rite Stand straight with arms outstretched in line with the shoulders. Slowly turn in a clockwise motion. This exercise brings all your focus into one place. It’s like a vortex bringing everything back into balance.
2-Second Rite Lie straight on a mat or rug with the hands flat down at the side of your hips. of the hips. Raise your feet until the legs are straight up feet flat pointed to your head. At the same time, raise the head & shoulders lightly of the floor. Let go, and lower the legs & head slowly – rest and repeat. This Rite is aimed at improving core strength and also digestion.
3- Third Rite. Kneel on a rug or mat with hands at sides, palms flat against the side of legs. Curl your toes under to help your balance. Breathe in slowly, arching the back gently. Breathe out bringing yourself back to starting position and repeat. This exercise is wonderful for opening up the chest, clearing airwaves and renewing oxygen to the brain.
4-Fourth Rite Sit up straight on rug or carpet with feet stretched out in front. The legs must be perfectly straight — back of knees must be well down or close to the rug. Place the hands flat on the rug, fingers together, and the hands pointing outward slightly. Chin should be on chest — head forward.”
Now gently raise your body, at the same time bending the knees and raising the stomach – head back. Your body should look like a table top supported by your arms.
When the body is pressed up in this position, tense all your muscles before returning to your starting posture & repeating.
5-Fifth Rite Place the hands on the floor about two feet apart and stretch the legs behind you with your toes curled under. Push the body, and especially the hips up so you look like an ‘upside down V’ (This is called the Downward Facing Dog Position) bringing your chin to the chest. Now let the body come slowly down to a ‘sagging’ position – bringing the head up as far back as possible.
As I mentioned earlier, when it comes to health promotions my views are always skeptical – but the 5 Tibetan Rites did worked for me. Let me know if they work for you!
