The 5 Tibetan Rites are once-secret, ancient yoga-like poses developed thousands of years ago by Tibetan monks to slow aging, increase energy, calm the mind and strengthen the body.
The secret to the 5 Tibetan Rites became unveiled in the 1930’s when a retired British army officer discovered a remote Tibetan monastery where the monks were rumored to have discovered the legendary Fountain of Youth. The remarkably old, yet amazingly healthy monks claimed that the secret to reversing aging lay in the five special movements they performed daily. The officer learned these exercises from the monks and taught them to Peter Kelder, who documented them in the book “The Ancient Secrets of the Fountain of Youth.”
Practitioners reported improvements in strength, endurance, and energy, relief from joint pain and headaches, better memory and vision, weight loss and even a more youthful appearance.
The five Tibetan rites are said to stimulate the energy centers of the body, the chakras, by speeding up and coordinating their spin. Focusing on each chakra during added repetitions of the exercises can yield increased benefits. The end result is that activating and stimulating the chakras stimulates all the glands of the endocrine system, benefiting the body’s overall functioning and aging process.
