The "Everything Five Tibetans" Thread...

What are the Five Tibetan Rites of Rejuvenation?

From Amazon.com:

“The Five Tibetans are a yogic system of highly energizing postures and exercises that originated in the Himalayas. Liberating and enhancing the innate energetic power of the human body and mind, these five exercises take a minimum of daily time and effort but offer remarkable results in the way of increased physical strength and suppleness as well as mental acuity. In addition, these exercises can be a vehicle for enlivening the senses and generating and harnessing energy for the purpose of self-transformation.

Regular practice of these postures relieves muscular tension and nervous stress, improves respiration and digestion, benefits the cardiovascular system, leads to deep relaxation and well-being, and tunes and energizes the chakras.”

Alta - just another thread in which it was recently discussed:

? for people who do yoga with other forms of exercise: http://69.93.245.62/forum/showthread...hlight=Tibetan

There are numerous references to it in the check-in threads, starting in mid-February, but I figured those were much too long to wade through.

Wow - thanks Alta! This looks great.

I know I posted this somewhere before - but this is a Yoga Journal article on the topic.

Oh - and this site has the same pictures as one of the links you have above - but with more information and some alternatives for each exercise.

Thanks, Lianne! I haven't seen the site with the alternative options before.
