Boost Your Energy with Tibetan Yoga
To start: Begin with 3 to 5 repetitions of each move, no matter how fit you are. When you finish each move, pause and take 3 full breaths. To progress: Take your time with this practice. Add 1 to 2 reps each week, or as you feel ready, and work your way up to 21 consecutive reps of each exercise.

Stand with your arms extended out to the sides at shoulder height, palms down and shoulders relaxed. Begin to spin in place, clockwise; go as fast as you can without losing control. To prevent dizziness, keep returning your eyes to a single point. Do recommended reps (1 complete turn equals 1 rep), then stop and stand still. Place your hands together in prayer position--palms touching, thumbs resting against your chest--until you feel stable. Inhale and raise your arms overhead, then exhale, lowering your arms to your sides. Take 3 more deep breaths. Benefit: Improves balance; speeds up and balances the chakras.
