The Five Tibetans stimulate full energy flow through the chakras and enliven corresponding nerves, organs, and glands. These exercises also tone and strengthen the major muscle groups, contributing to a strong, resilient physique. Once you are familiar with the exercises, practice of the Five Tibetans will take about 10 minutes daily.
The Five Tibetans are ideally practiced 21 times each. Oddly enough, there is no need to exceed 21 repetitions, as the desired energetic effect of the Five Tibetans is achieved at that number.
There is no harm performing a greater number, but it simply isn’t necessary. Most people need to work up to that number of repetitions, so don’t be concerned if it is difficult to practice the full complement from the start. It takes nearly every beginner 6 months or longer to work up to the full 21 repetitions.
