5 Tibetan Rites into a Yoga Sequence Mar 28, 2016

5 Tibetan Rites into a Yoga Sequence

Fountain of Youth
Legend has it that the Tibetan 5 Rites (5 yogic kriyas) is a fountain of youth - practitioners delay the ageing process and look considerably younger than their actual age! It was supposedly taught to a British army colonel by Buddhist yogis when he explored the Himalayan mountain range in the 1930s. I came upon this story back in 2004 and even practised it for a few days. Now, it has timely resurfaced as I am engaged in the yoga of a teacher here in Siem Reap. I believe it's a good integration in a typical one-hour yoga class as it can fuse seamlessly into other established asanas. This can be part of the warm-up before doing the Surya Namaskars.

5 Tibetan Rites into a Yoga Sequence

5 Tibetan Rites
These rites should be done daily and repeated 21 times. To new practitioners, start with 5 repetitions until you reach 21.

Ending Thoughts
With the exception of Rite 1, the spinning (which is perhaps borrowed from the Whirling Dervishes of the Sufis?), all of the rites are practically yoga poses unto themselves. It is not surprising that yogis who are dedicated to the practice look younger than their actual age.
