This challenge was initiated by fellow yoga teacher Paulette Egan of Sports Yoga centre in Clonlara. The 5 Tibetans was the first real practice of Yoga I began, I had attended a yoga class for 2 yr priors to travelling to Australia in 2003. Up to my introduction to the 5 Tibetans I only did yoga in that once weekly class and had no clue about how to start a home practice. To only do yoga once a week is to my mind like brushing your teeth only once a wk, its better than not at all!
The 5 Tibetans as i learned it came from Tibetan monks and is 5 yoga poses repeated for 7 times, progressing to 14 and finally the optimum 21. Other teachers may have learned some slight differences. For example I learned that after each set of poses you take 3 deep Tibetan Yoga Breaths others learned 2. Then Paulette introduced me to in 2011 in affirmations that are paired with each pose and i found this enhanced benefits of this practice.
As Paulette put it “The plan is to improve the energy worldwide,so we need to get spinning at all corners of the globe.” As Gandi says be the change you want to see in the world” and the age old adage “As within so with out ”
