Editorial Reviews

The Tibetan Rites are a series of five yoga-type poses specifically designed to increase energy and stamina and slow the aging process. They are considered by many to be the Fountain of Youth. They take less than 10 minutes a day to do, once mastered, and should be done daily to produce the best results. Any level student can do this DVD as alternate poses are given for each pose. Even if you have injuries, adjustments can be made in most cases. Some people report they are more centered and relaxed after doing the DVD. Speed is not important; the Rites work at any speed or level. The most important thing is that you do them every day for best results. This practice is also beneficial for learning to breathe properly. There are 15 minutes of warm-up exercises to assist the body in loosening up and relaxing. The warm-ups can also be done just by themselves. This DVD is for ages 13 and up and any level of proficiency.........beginner to advanced student. Slowing down the aging process is the focus of this practice. The Rites can do done slowly or fast. Speed is not as important as the dedication to doing them daily. No more than 21 of each Rite is necessary. Start out with 3 of each and work up from there adding 1 every 3 days or when you feel you can handle more. The Rites are detoxifying and doing too many the first week can leave one feeling tired instead of energized. The first book written about these Tibetan Rites was published in l935 by Peter Kelder called "The Eye of Revelation". The second book came out in l985 called "The Ancient Secrets of the Fountain of Youth". I have been doing them for 25 years. I wish you a comparable and successful experience!

I must have at least two dozen workout/TaiChi/ChiKung videos in my collection, and The Five Tibetan Rites is the only one I've ever been able to work with consistently.

Having had major knee surgery a few years back and with very limited space in my apartment, getting into any significant exercise routine has been a real challenge. But this video is so engaging and non-stressful I was able to get started and stick with it in no time.

And it is effective! Besides the Five Rites themselves, the warmups alone are a complete gentle yoga routine in their own right which can easily be expanded by simply doing more repetitions, as can the Rites themselves.

Both the Rites and the warmups take minimal floorspace making them ideal for just about any living situation. And they really do work. My posture and my silhouette both started to improve after only a few sessions. The teacher is great and I just can't say enough good things about this program. Please give it a try, it really is the best thing I've ever found.

Dr. Morgan conducts a clear and simple yoga session within this dvd.

Whether the viewer is a newcomer to yoga or an experienced practicioner, this dvd is worth the viewing. I have no insight as to whether it is indeed the secret to eternal youth but these simple yoga disciplines are clearly a health benefit to anyone who consistently sets aside time to practice.

The delivery is clear and direct with illustrative examples provided on every warm up and exercise. Stamina, energy and the slowing down of the aging process are all the mission of these exercises.

I applaude Dr. Morgan who took out time to include a personal note with this dvd and the offering of accessiblity to her should I encounter any questions or further instruction needed.

Simply presented, clearly instructed, easy to follow.

Years ago I read Peter Kelder's book, and also purchased a video tape (now out of production, unfortunately), and have been doing the the five Tibetan rites ever since. I don't know where Dr. Morgan learned the rites, but what she's doing (most especially in regards to breathing) is NOT what is taught in the book. I also don't know (nor does she explain) where she gets all her warm up routines (which comprise a major portion of the DVD), as they're also not "in the book." Dr. Morgan is certainly enthusiastic about what she's doing and teaching, but it must be done PROPERLY to get results. Since she states she's been doing the rites for many years (20+ years), it's obvious that the rites are not doing what they're supposed to be doing (and which they do for me, and others who perform them properly), because she looks every bit her age. [I'm not saying that to be offensive in any way... I'm just stating a fact.] It's very easy to learn to do the five Tibetan rites from reading Peter Kelder's book. Please... buy the book and learn to do them properly... gracefully (which takes 15 to 20 minutes per day... NOT 10 minutes)... and skip this DVD.

Even though this instructional video is geared entirely towards women, it shows exactly how the 5 Tibetan Rites are supposed to be done--along with warm-up exercises. I recommend this video to anyone, regardless of gender, who's interested in the 5 Tibetan Rites.

Exceptionally well done video. The instructions are clear and easy to follow; start now and try to set aside 10 minutes every day to go through the 5 rituals because they can literally breathe life back into you. As you age these exercises can keep your system charged so you can remain vital unto an old age. I used to do the yogic Sun Salutation, but these have taken over as my main energy enhancer. Good job for bringing these 5 exercises to me in a way in which I could learn and benefit.

This DVD deserves 5 stars. If you're serious about learning the five rites, this is as good as it will get.
I'm 53, in good health and have been doing the rites for about three months now. I can see and feel the difference.
What I like about this DVD is that it was professionally done. Every exercise is explained in complete detail from the
breathing to proper body alignment. It starts out with about 10 minutes of introduction about the rites.
There's warm up exercises, and the movements are shown exactly how to be done, with alternative movements in case
you can't do any of the rites until you build up to them. Dr. Morgan speaks at a good rate of speed, is precise and very
clear. She takes you through the rites, and also shows a class going through them. This is the way instructional videos should
be. I've never met Dr. Morgan so I'm writing this from my own personal point of view. I seriously doubt you'd find a better
video than this. I'm doing the 21 reps of each rite, and people who haven't seen me in a while have commented how good I look.
I'm surprised just how powerful these movements are. I do Tai Chi, rebounding and stretching on a regular basis.
Adding this to my exercise program was the best thing I could have done. I would find it hard to believe that someone would
not like this video. It was made for woman, but it doesn't matter. The rites are for both genders. This is the DVD you want.
Great job Dr. Morgan. Thanx!
