  • The Rites represent a system of exercise that affects the body, emotions and mind. These exercises activate and stimulate the key areas of the body resulting in enhanced sense of well – being and harmony and a very high overall energy. The steps of the Rites are:

  • First Step:

  • Stand erect with arms outstretched horizontal to the floor, palms facing down. Your arms should be in line with your shoulders. Spin around clockwise until you become slightly dizzy. Gradually increase number of spins from 1 spin to 21 spins. Inhale and exhale deeply as you do the spins.

  • Second Step:

  • Lie flat on the floor, face up. Fully extend your arms along your sides and place the palms of your hands against the floor, keeping fingers close together. Then raise your head off the floor tucking your chin into your chest. As you do this, lift your legs, knees straight, into a vertical position. If possible, extend the legs over the body towards your head. Do not let the knees bend. Then slowly lower the legs and head to the floor, always keeping the knees straight. Allow the muscles to relax, and repeat. Breathe deeply as you lift your head and legs and exhale as you lower your head and legs.

  • Third Step:

  • Kneel on the floor with the body erect. The hands should be placed on the backs of your thigh muscles. Incline the head and neck forward, tucking your chin in against your chest. Then throw the head and neck backward. Your toes should be curled under through this exercise. As you arch, you will brace your arms and hands against the thighs for support. After the arching return your body to an erect position and begin the rite all over again. Inhale as you arch the spine and exhale as you return to an erect position.

  • Fourth Step:

  • Sit down on the floor with your legs straight out in front of you and your feet about 12" apart. With the trunk of the body erect. Place the palms of your hands on the floor alongside your buttocks. Then tuck the chin forward against the chest. Now drop the head backward as far as it will go. At the same time raise your body so that the knees bend while the arms remain straight. Then tense every muscle in your body so that knees bend while the arms remain straight. Finally let the muscles relax as you return to your original sitting position. Rest before repeating this rite. Breathe in as you raise up. Hold your breath as your tense the muscle and breathe out fully as you come down.

  • Fifth Step:

  • Lie down with your face down to the floor. You will be supported by the hands palms down against the floor and the toes in the flexed position. Throughout this rite the hands and feet should be kept straight. Start with your arms perpendicular to the floor, and the spine arched, so that the body is in a sagging position. Now throw the head back as far as possible. The, bending at the hips, bring the body up into an inverted "V". At the same time, bring the chin forward, tucking it against the chest. Breathe in deeply as you raise the body, and exhale fully as you lower the body.
