Two thousand years ago, Tibetan monks claimed that the aging process could be reversed. They developed the Rites, by condensing 21 yoga exercises into 5. What would easily take a couple of hours to perform, could then be completed in 10-20 minutes

An important part of the Tibetan exercises is a conscious synchronization of breathing while performing physical activity. Before beginning the exercises, practice the basic 4 - stage breathing technique.

* Inhale.
* Hold filled lungs.
* Exhale.
* Hold empty lungs.

No exercise should be so intense that it makes you feel exhausted. For example, if you are "losing your breath", it indicates that your body is in an anaerobic (low oxygen) condition and that you should slow down. If you can not talk normally after performing an exercise, you should slow down.

Sarah Kline takes a minute to share with us the fiveTtibetan rites.Filmed in beautiful Jackson Hole Wyoming, she is joined by professional athletes Tara Dakides and Taylor knox.

The five exercises are easy to do and produce an alert feeling in both body and mind. You are advised to start gently, doing only what is easy and comfortable for you, and to build up the number of repetitions of each exercise gradually. The process should normally take 2- 3 weeks in order to accustom the body to these movements.

Performing the five rites with 21 repetitions each will take you from 10 to 20 minutes.A good time to practice the rites is in the morning, after of before taking a shower. You will find that practicing the five Tibetans in the morning will make you feel more energetic and fresh during the rest of the day. You will also experience greater mental alertness during your daily activities.
