Yoga in Tibet

dizzy from deep breath
of yoga pose and balance
stillness of mountains

My response to Carpe Diem #1206 Yoga (especially Tibetan 5 rites Yoga)

In a new episode of our virtual journey through Tibet, Chèvrefeuille has introduced us to Tibetan Yoga, the union of mind, body and spirit, which is based on Buddhism. Tibetan Lamas believe in living each moment to the fullest, consciously and totally present in every moment.

Tibetan Yoga of the five rites is a yoga routine based on a ritual of exercises, which were developed over centuries in the monasteries of Tibet. In 1930 a retired British army officer, who learned them from the Lamas, brought them to the West and they are now practised around the world. An important part of the Tibetan exercises is a conscious synchronization of breathing while performing physical activity. They balance the seven chakras and regulate the hormonal output, affecting the digestive system, cardio vascular system, nervous system and respiratory system.
