The Five Tibetan Rites, with Hoberleigh Phreigh
August 27 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The Five Tibetan Rites are five simple kriyas (movements through two or more poses) that can be completed in less than 20 minutes and will help you live the long healthy, vigorous life of a Tibetan Monk. Just look at the Dalai Lama, who doesn’t want to look as young, vigorous and happy as he is!
The Five Tibetan Rites, the Five Tibetans or the Fountain of Youth exercises as they are often referred to, are considered to be over 2,500 years old.
Their origins in the west are based on a book by Peter Kelder published in 1939 entitled The Eye of Revelation. In this book Kelder claims to have met a retired British army colonel who shared stories of living in a Tibetan Temple (Lamasery) learning from Tibetan monks (Lamas).
The five sets of movements in modern yoga terms would be considered a vinyasa flow. Vinyasa is described as two or more asanas (poses) strung together with a transition that turns the poses into dance or tai chi like movements.
The British army officer, Colonel Bradford (not his real name BTW, it’s a pseudonym, but who wouldn’t want to be known as the inventor of the Fountain of Youth?), describes traveling in Tibet where he met lamas who taught him the rhythmic movements that aided the lamas in living a healthy, vigorous, long life. Although Colonel Bradford is said to have brought these rites to the west after WWI, they have recently seen a great renewal in interest. Dr. Oz has touted the benefits of the Rites on his TV show as well as numerous other health related magazines and books.
