The 5 Tibetan Rites are once-secret, ancient yoga-like poses developed by Tibetan monks thousands of years ago to slow aging, increase energy, calm the mind and strengthen the body. You can increase your energy and longevity by performing these five easy exercises that take only 10 minutes each day to do.
The secret to the 5 Tibetan Rites became unveiled in the 1930’s when a retired British army officer discovered a remote Tibetan monastery where the monks were rumored to have discovered the legendary Fountain of Youth. The remarkably old, yet amazingly healthy monks, claimed that the secret to reversing aging lay in the five special movements they performed daily. The officer learned these exercises from the monks and taught them to Peter Kelder, who documented them in the book “The Ancient Secrets of the Fountain of Youth.”
Practitioners reported improvements in strength, endurance, and energy, relief from joint pain and headaches, better memory and vision, weight loss and even a more youthful appearance.
The second edition of the book included a new chapter on the power of the mind, explaining how the 5 Rites were meant to stimulate the energy centers of the body, the chakras, by speeding up and coordinating their spin. You can put your focus on each chakra during repetition of the exercises for increased benefits.
By activating and stimulating the chakras, which in turn stimulate all the glands of the endocrine system, the 5 Rites benefit the body’s overall functioning and aging process. The man who brought these 5 Rites out of Tibet stated that, “performing the Five Rites stimulates the circulation of essential life energy throughout the body.”
Many practitioners say it takes just 10 minutes each day to achieve all the benefits that the 5 Rites offer. While the 5 Rites can be done aerobically, practicing them slowly creates more strength and focus.
Prior to performing the 5 Rites, you can increase their benefit by doing a Chakra Meditation.
