Number Five Of The Five Tibetan Rites

Number Five of the Five Tibetan Rites is a flexibility exercise. You should do this exercise immediately following the fourth 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.

Interestingly, this is the rite that is most often used in movies, TV shows and TV commercials. Maybe it is because that it is a fairly easy exercise to do, and visually looks good while performing it.


  1. Support your body with your core sagging toward the ground and with your arms straight, your hands on the floor under your shoulders and your toes curled under.

  2. Gently move your head back as far as it will comfortably go.
  3. While breathing in and keeping your hands and feet in place, bend at the hips and bring your body into an inverted "V" position.
  4. Bring your chin toward your chest.
  5. As you breathe out, return to the starting position.
  6. Repeat this procedure for as many repetitions that you are able to do up to 21 repetitions.
