5 Tibetans: what they are
THE 5 Tibetans, "rites" it remains an implied word, they are simple exercises that help keep the body agile and flexible. They not only act on the body but also on the mind and our mentality. Lamas practice them on traditional prayer rugs but they do not lose effect if a Non-slip Yoga Mat, the important thing is to practice them with precision, consistency and regularity. Let's see which are, one by one, the 5 Tibetans.
The First Rite it consists of a clockwise rotation of our body, clockwise, because it is alone so the energy flowsStanding, legs slightly apart, raise the arms so that they are parallel to the floor, palms down, and rotate the arms, leaving them parallel to the ground. We start with a few rotations and never go over 21 laps.
The Second of the 5 Tibetans it makes us lie on the back with the arms at the sides and palms resting on the floor and the chin towards the chest. Bringing the legs at right angles to the floor, hammer feet, we make sure that the knees do not bend.
Always a maximum of 21 times we repeat and move on to Third Rite putting ourselves in the position that in Yoga is called the camel. With the hands on the hips, we bend the head forward and then back arching the back: this is a great exercise for strengthen the back muscles, improve the flexibility of the spine and posture.
The Fourth of the 5 Tibetans start sitting, legs straight and slightly apart, back straight, hands on the floor. You should tilt your head forward and then back and then, with your arms straight, raise yourself to create a right angle between your legs and thighs, a position that strengthens legs and arms.
We arrived at Fifth of the 5 Tibetans which transforms us into quadrupeds: by pointing the toes on the mat, lowering the pelvis, we support ourselves with erect arms, bringing our chin upwards. While the heels rest on the floor, a leg-in-the-air V is formed between the back and legs, just like the Yoga position of the dog upside down, which strengthens the arms and legs, relieving stress.
