The Five Tibetan Rites
Sunday 23rd May at 2pm
It’s said practising the Five Tibetan Rites will help you live a long, healthy, vigorous life similar to the Tibetan Monks.
The Five Tibetan Rites, also known as The Fountain of Youth and reported to be 2500 years old, are a series of 5 quick and simple kriyas (cleansing practices/exercises) repeated up to 21 times and taking up to 20 minutes. The emphasis is on a continual sequence of movement focusing on flexibility in the spine. Recent research has emerged suggesting that the flexibility of our spines predicts the flexibility of our arteries (to keep our arteries in a youthful state).
Practising these kriyas in the morning causes us to experience greater energy and leaves us feeling fresh for the rest of the day. An evening practice will result in experiencing greater mental alertness, being healthier for the rest of the evening and improving sleep.
Each rite combines deep breathing and movement, they work in conjunction with one another. The full practice brings a new rhythm into our lives. Thought to work on energy centres within the body, they help restore the normal spin and vibrancy. If done properly and with breath and intent, the rites can bring about great change in the body and mind.
The Five Tibetan Rites give these benefits:
- Increased mobility and flexibility (improved strength & coordination)
- Helping body and mind stay nimble (enhanced memory)
- Increased energy and feelings of calmness
- Increased mental clarity (emotional and mental health)
- Better sleep
- Greater spinal flexibility
- Weight loss
- Healthier digestion (detoxification)
- Balancing the chakras (energy centres within the body)
- Reversing the aging process
- Relief from joint pain and arthritis
So let’s have a go……..
