View Full Version : 5 Tibetan Rites

Does anybody do these? I did them for the first time today, would like to make it a regular thing. But I got SO nauseous doing the fourth one, I had to stop for awhile, several times! I've looked around and haven't found anything to explain why this might be, so was wondering if anybody had experienced it. I felt nauseous for most the rest of the day.
I have an inkling that it's releasing some stored up nastiness, and it's just detox, but I'm not sure. I'd love advice on anything to do to help.

Keep doing them. :) You're probably right on about the detoxing effect...if something is stored in your muscles, and you work them out, you are releasing toxins. I can't remember which one the fourth is, though...elucidate. Is that the spinning exercise?

Thanks. I'm going to try to stick with it. Didn't have time this morning, but tomorrow...
No, the spinning's the first one. the one I'm having trouble with is the table top.

Probably detox. Did you try the chroming stuff they talked about?

Maybe try the first three exercises like it suggests for just a couple weeks and see how that turns out. Gradually move to the fourth and fifth exercises.

I used to do these. I think I felt strange the first couple of times, but it passed. I think that the warm up excercises look good too. I printed out the article and I will start them again. I've been doing some lymphatic excercises as part of a cleanse and I really like doing some movement in the morning to get everything going.

I have heard of these. I think these are what Angela Stokes did during her 92 day Juice Feast?

These are awesome - I do these as my warm-up for my workout at the gym, and on my off days as well. My wise acupuncturist friend in Hawaii informed me years ago that actually these are a very powerful form of Qi Gong, in her opinion. She is now an awesome Ashtanga yoga instructor as well as acupuncturist. This year I got my husband into doing these, and they have made a huge difference for him. For a few years, I had gotten out of the habit of doing these as I was doing other things, but earlier this year, not long after I started up with bumping up the raw, I got the strong internal message to have some form of exercise that circulated energy differently in my body, to balance out my gym and cardio work. Loving the Rites, and they can be done anywhere! They are also great for people who might find a full yoga practice somewhat intimidating, especially without proper instruction.
I do these daily..every morning and I LOVE them! I'm not sure why you would feel naseous, I hope it passes.
I recommend these excercises to everyone.

I do them three times each day, no matter what! I love the rites and I do not ever see myself stopping my current routine. I am already three years into it! lol

3 times a day? Wow. I believe it, though. I did them today for the first time in a while and it felt so good!
I am a little confused about how to breathe with them - I'm mostly going by the description given by Brigitte Mars in Beauty for Life. Do you have suggestions on where to get good info?
Also - do you put your head upside down when doing the tabletop? I think this might've been what made me feel so nauseous when I was doing it before - I didn't today (just looked straight up), and I felt much better - still a bit nauseous, but nothing like before...
