    Five Tibetan Rites

    Hello, guys!
    I'm on the 35th day of 90 Days of Action! I'm so surprised as anyone. I've never thought I can reach this point. But the thing is, I got curious about the "Five Rites", so I searched that term and I found this: https://www.healthline.com/health/5-...n-rites#how-to

    Has anyone tried this before? I would like to know if these exercises really work. See ya!

    I have read the original book and spent a bit where I did a shortened form of the Five Rights as my warmup (I think I was doing 5 reps each). I don't think they will fix all that might ail a person, but they are certainly a good warmup that helps to counteract a lot of the ways people tend to hold their bodies when sitting at desks.

      Congrats on making it to 35 days.

      Whenever I see anything that talks about chakras or chi, I more or less categorize in the non-spiritual sense, of helping to increase concentration and focus. In that regard these exercises would be good, but it is the same general idea why martial artists do katas.

        I have been practicing the 5 Tibetan rites for some years now, in the morning as soon as I wake up. I am not rejuvenated but I have certainly benefited from these exercises and I find them the best and kindest way to start my days
        I have read several books about the 5 Tibetan rites but I find the practice much more interesting and explanatory.

            I stumbled upon this last night, but I read about the Five Rites many, many years ago, in a different time. Are the 21 repetitions done of each exercise in sequence, or do you repeat the circuit 21 times? I think I've had the wrong understanding all along. Thanks.

              Dadalo Repeat the first exercise 21 times, then the second 21 times and so on

                Thank you, Fremen, for clarifying the sequence for me.

                    I also read the book. I have Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo and ended up in bed sick from the first move.
                    In case you are wondering what a bad episode of BPPV is like, picture still feeling like you are still spinning around when you have stopped + the floor continually shifting underneath you even though you are lying down. Not fun.

                      Surya Namaskar (Sanskrit for Sun Salutation) is the perfect morning routine which gives flexibility as well as strengthens the body, plus being a yoga workout, you will feel the chakras/ vibes/ positivity too. The Sun Salutation workout on Darebee https://darebee.com/workouts/sun-sal...n-workout.html is based on that but is harder and I don't know why but the respected Yoga Guru calls it his creation whereas it is being practiced in India for thousands of years.
                      And from my personal experience, the salutation adds much more than just stretching in the Five Rites

                      If you watch this video, it will perfectly explain the step by step routine and the breathing pattern to be followed https://youtu.be/AbPufvvYiSw

                        Surya Namaskar will be helpful for you too

                          Maybe try to turn slower and stop for a moment at the end of each lap

                              Thanks for the links, Deepansh27 . I've practiced the Sun Salutation, but hadn't seen the Darebee workout before.
