5 Tibetan Rites of Rejuvination

Last month I wrote about you can do at home or on the road. Here's another routine I love when I have limited time or space. The "Five Tibetans" are an exercise program Tibetan monks use to refresh and energize themselves. The Tibetans claim that these exercises activate and stimulate the seven key chakras that in turn stimulate all the glands of the endocrine system. It takes only six-eight minutes once you get the routine down. It's rejuvenating, starts the blood flowing, generates heat and strengthens you. There are five exercises total, and you do each one 21x. Start with fewer repetitions and build up to twenty-one.  In the first movement, you spin 21x clock-wise, then reverse for 3 spins. This stimulates your vestibular system which controls balance and spatial orientation. It's amazing how those three reverse spins undo any dizziness. Click here and refer often. It's a great website to help you remember the routine and has animated moves to show you how to do it correctly.
