Do you ever wish you had a set of exercises that were so effective that just 10 minutes a day would be enough? That is the promise of the 5 Tibetan Rites, which were originally revealed in The Ancient Secret of the Fountain of Youth. The rites, exercises in other words, were reportedly discovered in a Tibetan monastery where monks enjoyed extraordinarily long life.
However, the exercises as described in The Fountain of Youth were so difficult that it was easy to get injured unless you were already proficient in yoga. Carolinda Witt has broken the exercises down into safe and manageable steps so anyone can learn to do them. She has written T5T: The 10-Minute Rejuvenation Plan.
What makes the exercises so special? Not only is it an overall body workout, “the T5T program harnesses and develops this highly complex system of life energy. The Chinese call this energy Qi (pronounced “chi), the Japanese Ki, and in India it is called prana.”
In addition to the five exercises, I especially enjoy the warm-ups. They help me to relieve stress and loosen my joints. Each exercise has directions for preparation and cautions to avoid injury. The more difficult ones are broken down to be learned over a period of several weeks.
A companion DVD is also available.
I can’t claim that I’m up to the ideal 21 repetitions of the exercises, nor am I consistent yet. However, I am getting experienced enough to do them without referencing the book and feel better when I do.
