The Five Tibetans.

Article by Lissa Coffey

My friend Maryanne introduced me to this amazing practice called ”The Five Tibetans“. This is a yogic system of simple, yet very energizing exercises that originated in the Himalayas. Many years ago a retired British army officer learned them in a Tibetan lamasery, and he brought them to the West. He claimed that “performing the Five Rites stimulates the circulation of essential life energy throughout the body.”

This series of five exercises takes a minimum of time and effort, yet it can greatly increase physical strength, flexibility, and mental acuity. The book I have explains everything in detail, and it’s fascinating.

You can get the basics, including illustrations of the exercises to help you get started, at this website

Or get the book “The Five Tibetans” by Christopher S. Kilham.
