The Five Tibetan Rites
A Workshop with Daniel Pugh
Often referred to as “The Five Rites of Rejuvenation,” The Five Tibetans is a system of exercise reported to be more than 2,500 years old. The Rites are said to be a form of Tibetan Yoga that are similar to the form of Yoga that originated in India. Benefits of the Rites include increased energy, stress reduction, and an enhanced sense of calm, clarity of thought, increased strength and flexibility, resulting in an overall improvement in health and well-being.
The Five Tibetans represent a great way to keep your body in shape when you have limited time for a physical workout or limited space for a complete yoga routine. You can easily do the exercises in the space at the foot of the bed in most hotel rooms. Thus, it is a useful practice for both travelers and people with a busy work schedule.
In this 3-hour workshop, Daniel will start by introducing us to the five elements (through prop use) and explain their relationship to the Five Tibetans, following through with a 90-minute flow of the Tibetan asanas and their warm-ups. Each of the Tibetans will also be explored both individually and in relation with each other. This workshop will involve individual and partner work, depending on the dynamics of the group, and a guided meditation to end.
