Humanity has always been searching for the holy grail of youthfulness.
More than 2,500 years ago, scientists discovered some physical movements that seemed to answer this search, the 5 Tibetans. Those movements were considered to be a path to higher consciousness and youthfulness.
While the 5 Tibetans might not give you everlasting youth, they do indeed represent a great way to keep your body in shape, especially when you have limited time for a workout or a complete yoga routine.
We recommend you do the exercises one time per day, ideally before breakfast. That helps you to wake up your body for the day in addition to keeping it young and strong.
If you are new to these exercises, we recommend you start slowly, doing just 3 to 5 repetitions per rite.
Make sure that you always keep a relaxed pace and pay attention to what your body tells you. These are not cardio exercises that you rush through. They are body and mind workouts.
Below is a video where anti-aging expert Ellen Wood shows you how to do them.
