Tibetan Yoga is the union of mind, body and spirit, & is based on Buddhism. The Godly Tibetan Lamas believe in living each moment to the fullest, i.e. to be consciously and totally present in every moment. These Lamas lived for 100 years and more but looked & felt like they were 50 years old. Their secret of eternal youth & vitality was a set of 5 simple yogic exercises called the ‘5 Rites ‘which were developed over centuries in the monasteries of Tibet.
In 1930 they were brought to the west by a retired British army officer, Corl. Bredford. who lived with the Lamas & practiced the 5 Rites for 3 years and returned looking many years younger. His friend, Peter Kelder, recorded the experiences of Bredford in a book called “The Ancient Secret of the Fountain of Youth”. Millions of people started doing the 5 Rites with amazing experiences of regaining youth, vitality, & of being cured of depression, arthritis, backache, diabetes, & digestive, respiratory, & heart problems.
Rustam and Razia Patel were introduces to the 5 Rites by a friend who had bounced back to perfect health after suffering from 3 heart attacks.
Impressed by this, Razia went to USA and took classes of Tibetan Yoga and brought back books and video of the 5 Rites.
Then both Razia & Rustam started doing the Rites & within weeks were cured of slip disc and spondilytis. They then started sharing Tibetan Yoga with their friends who also felt positive effect on their physical & mental health.
One lady who got very good benefits of doing the Rites wrote an article in the Times of India paper, and after reading that article 100s of people called wanting to learn the 5 Rites and that is how Razia started doing workshops to teach people Tibetan yoga& meditation.
The feedback that they got from the participants was dramatic….They all felt very energetic, got relief from neck & backache, reduced high blood pressure & diabetes, their concentration and efficiency improved, & they felt more positive.
“It is very heartening to hear ladies share that their husbands are returning home from work feeling fresh & energetic so their family & social life has improved”says Razia.

For thousands of years, medical practitioners have maintained that the body has seven principal energy centers which correspond to the seven endocrine glands, also known as chakras. Chakras are essentially energies within spinning vortexes. As a vortex is increased, the life force becomes stronger and more directed.
Recent medical research has uncovered convincing evidence that the aging process is hormone-regulated. The five ancient Tibetan rites are said to normalize hormonal imbalances in the body, thereby holding the key to lasting youth, health, and vitality. The rites stimulate the energy system in the body, wake up the chakras, and get energy moving from your core outward to your extremities. The theory behind the rites is that your kundalini (spiritual energy) is stored and lies at the base of your spine and that these rites access that energy in a very efficient, fast, and safe way.
Some call these rites isometric exercises. Although they are helpful in stretching muscles and joints and improving muscle tone, this is not their primary purpose. The vortexes spin fast when we are young but as we age or if we are very stressed and don’t exercise, then these vortexes slow down. Slow & abnormal vortexes produces abnormal health, deterioration, and old age. The 5 Rites normalize the speed of the spinning vortexes by keeping them spinning at the same rate and working in harmony.
