five tibetan rites

Postby kitztack » 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

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.

When this is, that is.
From the arising of this comes the arising of that.
When this isn't, that isn't.
From the cessation of this comes the cessation of that.
