Waking Up Awareness: The Five Tibetans Mindful Movement – 30 mins

With Sylvia Ferguson.
The Five Tibetan Rites, also known as the ‘Five Tibetans’, are a series of physical movements that are believed to promote health, vitality and longevity. These exercises are derived from a Tibetan yoga tradition said to be over 2,500 years old. The recommended practice is to start with three repetitions of each exercise and gradually increase the repetitions over time. Practitioners often perform the Five Tibetan Rites in the morning, ideally on an empty stomach. It is important to listen to your body and modify the exercises as needed to avoid strain or injury.
In this practice, Sylvia teaches her own variation of the sequence, with preparatory and counter poses woven in, as well as suggestions for modifications, to take the body safely through full range of motion with fluid movements and an emphasis on mindful awareness of what is unfolding in the body from moment to moment. Strong in doses, the practice is designed to wake up awareness.
