5 Tibetan Rites
You should do these five poses from 3 to 16 minutes every morning and, as a result, you will effectively lose weight and improve your immune system.
The First Rite
In order to do the first exercise, you should stand straight, with your hands extended horizontally and your palms facing down. Keep your feet apart at shoulder distance.
Focus on a spot in front of you and start spinning from the left to the right side. As you spin, deeply breathe in and out. Continue to spin until you feel dizzy.
The Second Rite
Lie flat on a rug. Extend your hands along the sides of your body, with your palms touching the floor. Take a deep breath and lift your legs about 90 degrees.
By doing so, keep your knees straight. Simultaneously, raise your head close to your chest. If possible, you should try to lift your legs over your head. Slowly exhale and bring your head and your legs back to the initial position.
The Third Rite
Kneel on the floor with your arms extended downwards and your palms facing the sides of your legs. By bending the waist and bringing your head to the chest, lean forward as much as possible.
Afterwards, lean backwards as much as you can. Hold the breath for a while and, exhale it as you return to the first position.
The Fourth Rite
Sit down on the floor with your legs extended in front of you. Keep your hands straight, with your palms touching the floor.
Lean your head forward. Then, lift your hips and bent your knees so that your body from your knees to your shoulders is in a horizontal position.
Keep your hands in vertical position and extend your head backwards as much as you can. Return to the initial position after a couple of seconds. Relax briefly before doing this exercise again.
The Fifth Rite
Lie down on your belly with your palms touching the floor. Lift yourself up in an upward- facing dog position. Keep your arms straight and extend your head and your shoulders as backwards as you can.
Next, by extending your spine, lift your hips and your back so that you take a downward-facing dog position. After a few seconds, slowly return to the first position.
Try to do these exercises every morning after you wake up, before having a breakfast. You can start by repeating each exercise 3 times in the first week.
Gradually increase the number in every following week until you reach 21 repetitions of every exercise.
