Number Four Of The Five Tibetan Rites
Number Four of the Five Tibetan Rites is a flexibility exercise. You should do this exercise immediately following the third Rite.
As with all the rites, you should perform this exercise in a slow, rhythmic pattern both with the physical movement and in your breathing. Take a deep breath in as you raise your body, and breathe out as you return to the starting position.
- Sit erect on the floor with your neck and spine aligned.
- Keep your legs outstretched with your feet apart, and your hands on the floor aligned in the same direction as your legs.
- Lower your chin toward your chest.
- Let your head tilt back as far as it will comfortably go.
- While keeping your arms straight and your hands and feet in place, breathe in.
- Bend your knees and raise your trunk to a horizontal position.
- Tense your muscles and then relax them.
- As you breathe out, return to the starting position.
- Repeat this procedure for as many repetitions that you are able to do up to 21 repetitions.
