What is Tibetan Yoga? 

Tibetan Yoga is suitable for people of all fitness levels – beginners and advanced yogis alike. This type of yoga practice gives order to the flow of energy in the body and mind, removing negative tendencies and mental blocks, so that positivity and calm can emerge. 

Tibetan Yoga comprises five yoga exercises called The Five Rites, plus breathing exercises, meditation and positive thinking. They're based on the practices of Tibetan monks who, it's claimed, lived long, active lives and stayed 'forever young.' The entire routine of Tibetan Yoga, which can be practiced in less than twenty minutes, aims to promote the free flow of energy around the body, to balance the chakras and hormones, and regulate the digestive, cardiovascular, nervous and respiratory systems.
