five tibetan rites

Postby Babadhari » Tue Dec 31, 2013 11:41 pm


today i was informed about a set of dynamic exercises call the Five Tibetan Rites. i had never heard of these before so i found this video on youtube

phpBB [video]

i think i will try to integrate it into my daily routine

does anyone here have any experience with this practice and how it compares with more well known yoga practices? i have a problem an elbow and discomfort in my sacro-iliac joint so id be glad to know of any precautions? :namaste:

p.s i found this site with details
Aflame with the fire of passion, the fire of aversion, the fire of delusion.
Aflame, with birth, aging & death, with sorrows, lamentations, pains, distresses, & despairs ......

Seeing thus, the disciple of the Noble One grows disenchanted. SN 35.28

Dear kitztack,

I think I would crash through a window or into a wall if I tried that!

Some of the poses look similar to yoga poses; I saw what looked partly like a camel, child's pose, bridge, downward and upward dog. I bet a good yoga teacher could tell you if they'll aggravate your SI joint.

Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this world; by non-hatred alone is hatred appeased. This is an eternal law.
