How The Five Rites Work - The Five Rites Exercise Program
This program is often described as a modified yoga program. Simply put, yoga is a science that unites the body, mind, and spirit. Today this is often called Mind/ Body Healing. The author of the book believes that yoga was brought to Tibet from India in the 11th or 12th century and that Tibetan monks 5 Tibetan Rites developed modified these exercises and developed an effective program of exercises that western society now calls the "Five Tibetan Rites." The rugged mountainous conditions these monks live in may well account for their particular emphasis on vigor. Many of the yoga exercises and practices being taught in the western world today are very new. The "Five Tibetan Rites" are exactly what the ancient Tibetans developed over many centuries. Therefore it's vital to do the "Five Tibetan Rites" exactly as they are presented without altering the form or sequence to achieve some of the benefits accrued to these "Rites."
