5 Tibetan Positions to Feel Younger

· December 14, 2016
Try these Tibetan positions every day to have greater flexibility, which will translate into being more agile and healthy.

Everyone wants to fight the passage of time. What a lot of people don’t know is that there are certain poses that will help you do just that.

Pay attention to these Tibetan positions that can help you feel younger. It’s not too hard to take a few years off the body.

This is a series of poses and exercises that are responsible for stretching your muscles.

It’s best if you start out doing sets of one or two repetitions every day, increasing each exercise by one repetition every week.

Add some physical activity to this routine and you’ll feel much younger.

The secret behind these stretches is that they activate and stimulate the glands of your endocrine system.

As you know, that’s what’s responsible for the overall function of your body and the aging process, in addition to controlling your weight and whether you gain or lose some pounds.
