The five Tibetan Rites are a well known sequence of body weight exercises beneficial for strengthening and balancing the body. The history of The Five Tibetan Rites is derived from Buddhist practice but can be practiced by anyone, anywhere. All you need is space.
I often recommend the Five Tibetans to clients who are either looking for a simple home practice which can be easily adapted to suit one’s physical ability. The beauty of this practice is that it involves body weight training as opposed to the use of equipment which is less damaging to the body. Over the years I have recommended this practice to people who are in need of front of body strengthening or balance. From surgeons who perform microsurgery and Veterinary clients who spend long hours sitting or standing in one position with their bodies bent over their patients to desk workers who spend long hours stationed at their computers.
Unlike most western yoga practice The Five Tibetans addresses stretching and strengthening front of body which counter balances postural imbalances created by most work practices. The Five Tibetans can also be linked to the yoga practice of Sun Salutations which again involves a sequence of exercises that can be adapted to suit individual physical needs and will stretch and strengthen the body. Both practices compliment each other beautifully.
So, if you are looking for a well balanced home practice that you can adapt for yourself as a daily or regular practice then click on the above link and give The Five Tibetan Rites a Go.
