Testimonial by   Maryanne Volicek

"I was diagnosed with cancer in early 2002 and underwent surgery that left me exhausted and debilitated. I soon decided that I needed to do whatever possible to speed the recovery process and sought help in complimentary medicine. I have been a patient of Dr. Qi Xin Chen for over 8 months. Dr Chen has a Master of Health from NSW University and is currently studying for his PHD in traditional Chinese Medicine, specializing in boosting T Cells to combat cancer. After I attended the T5T workshop and learnt The Five Tibetans & Energy Breathing Techniques, Dr. Chen was absolutely astonished at the overall improvement in my Qi (Chee). He asked me to demonstrate the postures and breathing that I had learnt and suggested that due to the astounding changes that had taken place in my body in such a short period of time, that I should continue with the T5T exercises. This together with the acupuncture and meditation I had already commenced were in his opinion, the reason for my rapid recovery."

Testimonial by   Sandy Rowe - Club Manager for over 55's, Vic

Sandy Rowe Testimonial"I have been an instructor of T5T for about 4 weeks now. In this time I have taught 17 elderly people from 60-84 years old - but now young!!! The experience has been so emotional for me to see these people firstly doing the Rites (still Tabletop the hardest for them - but getting stronger) and secondly reaping the rewards.

It may seem trivial to some people however, ladies who have had incontinence, no longer need to wear panty liners etc. as they have discovered their pelvic floor muscles. We often take this for granted however they advise me - their generation were never told about this or never talked about it. The embarrassment, odour and cost were all factors.

Others have been energised and been told how well they look. They are loving all the attention and compliments. How often does a 70 or 80 year old receive compliments? There has also been a marked improvement in their self esteem and posture.

In addition to this, I have had another workshop with 8 people and looking forward to my next workshop with 10 on Saturday. That will be 35 in my first 4 weeks.

I love being able to change the lives of people in such a happy and positive way. Of course some of the people have had a detox affect, which is also terrific and we are working onwards and upwards with them.

I have made so many friends that not only has T5T changed their lives, it has changed mine."

Testimonial by   Bryn Wackett – Registered T5T® Instructor. Dancer

T5T Instructor - Bryn Wackett"Being a full time dancer for the past 15 years, I have chosen to use a variety of yoga methods as well as Pilates & Feldenkrais method towards injury prevention & sustaining strength & flexibility throughout my career. I came across T5T in 2004 via my chiropractor, Kathrine Harrison, who suggested I learn to teach it so I could then teach her patients that were in need of learning it. What a lovely surprise it has been to find that I can do this regularly on my own without my huge ongoing costs of yoga & Pilates classes or the disappointment experienced if my schedule didn’t fit in with class times! I still go to yoga & Pilate’s classes occasionally and I haven’t had any injuries since doing T5T!"

Testimonial by   Peter Hagerty - Founder - The Source Foundation

"T5T is an easy and powerful exercise routine that only reveals its true effectiveness when undertaken. It cannot be described adequately in words. Within a week of commencement my mind was clearer, my energy more constant and my sense of purpose more defined. Powerful and subtle stuff. "
Testimonial by   Craig Gowan - General Manager, Business & Management, Registered T5T Instructor

T5T Instructor - Craig GowanMy interest in T5T has been fuelled by 8 years of yoga practice, all of which I enjoyed, but none of which gave me the energy boost I was after. T5T provides me with the energy I need to easily cope with the challenges of work and personal life. It gives me more focus, the stamina for long days training, and the calmness to enjoy even the most draining situations - all for 10 minutes a day!! Nothing else can give me this boost. "

Testimonial by   Shirley-Anne Lawler, Professional Coach & Business Owner

"The 5 Tibetan exercises are truly remarkable! I believe to the depth of my soul that the regular doing of these exercises contributed greatly to the reduction in my body weight by 8 kgs in 2006. On 1 April I weighted 83 kgs and commenced T5Ts about the same time. By 25 November (my birthday) I weighted 75 kgs!! I am a believer in reducing weight slowly so I was so trilled with this. I did at one time weigh 94kgs and this is the lightest I have been in 20 years. I couldn't even do half a repetition of Rites No 4 & 5, yet I continually persisted each day just to do as much as I could. So little by little I improved in technique and strength. I was absolutely delighted with myself as I could do 21 rotations of each of T5T pose after ONLY 14 weeks. T5T gave me and continues to give me a wonderful sense of amazement - that my body can DO them; a sense of achievement; confidence; increased happiness; an incredible feeling of well-being and the increased my fitness level dramatically!! I would like to say 'thank you' to my friends Chris and Laurie who introduced me to them! They have changed my life!! "

Testimonial by   Othmay Razs

"The centrifugal effect of and the weight bearing exercises contribute to a better stronger body, naturally. Its only been 40 days but I feel younger. i have lost weight and people have commented positively. I also respond to people more emphatically than before. There is marked difference between the days i do the exercises and the days that I missed.I am currently experimenting the effect of combining these exercises with some briskwalking. Wish me luck. "
Testimonial by   Averil Coe

" The T5T is going very well. I am taking it very slowly and just doing what my body is ready for. I am now up to 7 reps of each rite though some are still fairly modified. Because I have done so much of this sort of thing over the years it is very easy to get into the routine. I get up 10 minutes earlier each week day and shower and then do the warm up and the rites. Already I am noticing a difference in my energy levels - both physically and emotionally which is very exciting - given that I am spending so little time on the activities.

I think the biggest thing for me with the T5T program is that it has given me permission to take things in very small increments and to also radically modify the positions to allow for various current body weaknesses, whilst still being able to maintain the overall integrity of the Rites. Before I felt like I had to climb a huge mountain with a weak and unprepared body which was very discouraging. I also realize and appreciate all the yoga and other spiritual practice that I have done in the past - so much of it naturally comes into play now that I am doing the T5T.

I have started taking my small yoga group again and had a very interesting experience - the first day I found that (naturally) my body was more limber and flexible and I did quite a thorough session - felt great. But the next day I felt dreadful. Naturally as I feel more energized I am tending to take a bit better care of myself - eating well, incorporating flax seed oil into my diet, taking the natural calcium supplement etc. "

    Testimonial by    Brian Fogerty - Airline Pilot from Ireland

..."I am about a month into the T5T program and a quick thank you too you and yours for putting together an excellent package. I work as an Airline pilot and finding the benefits both from core muscle development and breathing exercises."...

    Testimonial by    John S from South Australia

"I was diagnosed with mild sleep apnoea 3 weeks before attending my T5T weekend course in December last year. I commenced CPAP therapy a week before my course. I have now been carrying out the full 21 rites for a month after taking the 10 weeks to get there progressively, getting there by adding 2 reps per week. I have found that the combination of CPAP & T5T have certainly helped me to reduce my apnoeas (stopping breathing whilst asleep) from an average of 320 per night to zero occurrences.

The positive impact to my life has been quite amazing as it had been many years since I've woken feeling refreshed & I attribute T5T & its energy breathing methods as a major factor in this change. I am now back to a healthier & more wholesome life & thank Carolinda for sharing this simple but powerful experience with me."

Testimonial by   Sally Walsh (Age: Late 60’s)

"For 6 years I have used “incontinence pads”. For the last 2 weeks since T5T I have had no need for pads. I am in my late 60’s. "
Testimonial by   Greta De Tapia - Interpreter Age 79

"I am now doing 21 of each of the 5 exercises and I find it enjoyable and rewarding to do them every day. It really takes less than 20 minutes to perform them. They improve my physical, emotional and mental health. I feel more relaxed and energetic, even though this sounds like a contradiction of terms, it is a fact."
Testimonial by   Robyn Gilbey - Publicist

"I was in a head-on collision when I was fifteen years old. Four of the seven vertebrae in my neck were affected as a result of the accident. I spent the next twenty plus years visiting, chiropractors, osteopaths, masseurs and physiotherapists on a regular basis to help ease the pain I suffered and the inflexibility of movement.

Over the years I attended yoga and gym lessons in addition to aerobics and power-walking classes to strengthen my body and enable me to keep reasonably fit and manage the pain. Carolinda and I had been friends for many years and when she started The 5 Tibetan yoga, I noticed a significant change in her ability to cope with stress and how she just seemed to be more focused and content. It was enough for me to commit to a class and give it a go.

I have now been practicing T5T for three years and couldn’t imagine my life without this programme. I have increased my overall flexibility and haven’t had a neck problem at all during this time. I rarely visit my Osteopath because there is little need. He was also amazed at the turnaround my body took from doing a small number of exercises over a relatively short period of time. I noticed changes within weeks.

Other benefits for me personally have been to do with the breathing, also taught in the class. I breathe better than I ever have and through that, I have improved my relationship with my family, which includes a calmness I’d not really experienced before. I cannot recommend this programme highly enough, and as it only takes me ten minutes a day, it is hardly a sacrifice of my time. "

Testimonial by   Zewdi Zeyen (65 years)

"I am so full of energy. I want to run and I can't stop doing things in the house. I just feel very happy. "
Testimonial by   Marija Sutich, Registered T5T Instructor, Business Owner

T5T Instructor - Marija Sutich"I cannot begin to explain how wonderful it was to get back my full mobility in both my neck and back. Doing the 5 Rites has not only made me more supple than I was 10 years ago, I am painfree! (no more cortisone injections for me!) What amazed me was how quickly I began experiencing results. I also believe doing the daily 5 Rites gave me internal strength to help deal with the painful loss of my beloved husband Jim with whom I'd been with since the age of 18. Recently I introduced my sister Elaine to the 5 Rites who has been suffering with painful hips, she too is marvelling at the results she is experiencing after only such a short time."

Testimonial by   Christine Gardner – Meals on Wheels Co-ordinator – Southern Cross Care

"T5T has made a great impact on my life. It has given me extra energy. My strength has improved and I feel more motivated. I am currently on a weight loss program and needed a good exercise program and feel T5T suits my needs. I totally enjoy T5T, which is amazing as I am not usually the type to exercise. I feel it is a way of life, which I will continue forever. "

Testimonial by   Karen Bayly - Registered T5T Instructor, PhD Zoology, Certificate IV in Training & Assessment

T5T Instructor - Karen BaylyT5T gives me the energy I need to do all the things I want to do. It has provided stability, calmness, and a place to come home to at both the best and worst times of my life. "

Testimonial by   Tess Creevey (85 years)

"I am 85 years old and totally blind. I have been doing T5T for 6 weeks now, have purchased the CD and love the feeling of wellbeing I get. It's given me a lot of motivation and I feel my body getting better and stronger. "
Testimonial by   Gillian Vale (Age: 7O’s)

"T5T is the first exercise routine that I have enjoyed. I have never been into exercising! I am in my 70’s and have found by doing T5T my sciatic pain, which has been constant for five years has disappeared completely – great!!! I will continue with T5T. "
Testimonial by   Percy Gailis (74 yrs)

"Since taking up T5T my fitness and energy have improved by 100%. I have also lost weight and am sleeping marvellously. All in all I feel invigorated all over. Thanks again to T5T. I am 74 years young. "
Testimonial by   Frank Capdevila (84 yrs)

"At 84 years of age I thought I would never have the opportunity to improve my health. I find that I am looking forward to doing T5T every day and so far people keep telling me I look so more vibrant and young. In myself I do feel well and very happy with the course. I know by persevering I will get to the top. "
Testimonial by   D. Braithwaite - Learning and Performance Specialist

"I have found the journey very interesting so far. In fact it is the first time in my life that I have found daily exercise enjoyable. …I have not missed one day and now it's a familiar part of my morning ritual! Truly a record for me. I have definitely improved my flexibility and ability to concentrate. The way I describe it, I feel grounded and centred. There has been some weight loss and a definite improvement in upper body strength."

Testimonial by   Iain McGregor– IT Sales & Marketing - Sydney

"I did the workshop in a group of 9 at Rozelle this week and last week. 4 of the 9 stated that they had sinus problems at the start of the first session, when we discussed what we wanted from the training. At the session yesterday, ALL 4 stated that they had DRAMATIC sinus improvement in just 7 days. One fellow used to go through 3 handkerchiefs before breakfast. He has not used a handkerchief since last week. More spectacularly, all 9 of us, 5 women and 4 men, who range in age from early 20s to late 60s, are ALL doing T5T daily and the form and technique of EVERYONE is amazing good."
    Testimonial by    David & Irene Ho from Melbourne

" We have only learnt T5T for a few weeks. We do it as a morning routine. It is certainly great to laugh & learn together with a partner. Not to mention the fact that it is great to develop a healthy discipline. Perhaps it is a bit early to see the long term T5T benefit for us. At this stage, we do feel that we sleep soundly & sleep through every night. Thank you Sandy for guiding us carefully step by step in developing our skills in doing T5T. With your thorough approach, we can avoid getting injury. When we first look at the pictures of all the posture of T5T exercises, we thought we could never achieve those difficult form. Now, it just builds up bit by bit every week. We are very lucky to have a friend who are genuinely interested in our well being. You are a true leader who put endless effort into helping the sick, sad & lonely. This is a great gift you have given us. Thank you! "
    Testimonial by    Win Nitschke from New Zealand

"I am a widow in my seventies, I learned how to do these Tibetan exercises some years ago at yoga, and they definitely work. I redecorated my whole house last year, all by myself, I ride a bike, play golf, do yoga, and T5T. I look after a huge garden, grow fruit and vegetables, do voluntary gardening, and have energy to spare. I feel very blessed to be where I am at this stage of life. Life is indeed wonderful. "

Testimonial by   Dianna Kooiker - Melbourne

"First and foremost, Thank You! I have now practiced T5T every morning this year at 5 am and know without doubt that I will continue this practice. More energy, greater levels of concentration, unforeseen muscle toning, greater flexibility, improved circulation, the list goes on and on. Suffice to say that I am now 49 years old, I work 55 plus hours pw and have more energy than many 25 year olds! I first learnt of the 5 Tibetans whilst attending yoga classes for 2 years, I now practice on my own as I enjoy the rare solitude of the early mornings and find T5T a great way to begin a meditation each day. For this meditation I simply follow the 7 spiritual laws of yoga as described by Deepak Chopra. My very sincere thanks to you for your book and for the fantastic results that I have experienced. "
    Testimonial by    I. van Dyk from Sydney, Australia

"...I've been practicing the Five Tibetans since Sept. 2002. Since then this routine is usually an envigorating start to my day. But if I'm unable to do it first thing in the morning it's quite easy to fit in at any other time. No need for a gym and independent of the weather.

Not being a young person I initially had my doubts wether I could reach that magic number. By increasing the number of movements slowly over several weeks I had no problem reaching 21 of each and I find them easy to do. I also feel that breathing in and out during each movement is important for the supply of energy. It makes lasting the distance easier.

My wrists used to hurt in the beginning but got stronger very quickly. Arm and tummy muscles are now nice and firm, too. And I find that keeping my weight down is not a problem anymore. So, it's really well worth spending 15 minutes each day. The Five Tibetans have become so much part of my routine that I can't imagine not doing them any more."...

    Testimonial by    Yaja Shlep from USA

I need to share with you my experience with the 5 Rites (or 6...). Usually the results in the testimonials are subjective and reflecting the personal feeling or opinion of the practitioner. 
I have empiric results that are quantitative and objective:
Due to my heart condition, my cardiologist have me doing echocardiogram of the heart every 3-6 months. On December 2009 I had a a small degradation with my results so I started to perform the 5 Rites religiously every day with 21 repetitions + warm-up + 10 minutes relaxation.
I did a second echocardiogram a week ago (after 4 months) and I talked with my cardiologist yesterday. He was surprised with the results. For example:
  1. The thickness of the wall of the heart normal values are 6mm - 11mm. On December my measurements were 12mm (above the normal) last week, the measurements were 10mm NORMAL
  2. The  LVIDD Left Ventricular Internal Dimension normal values are 37mm - 56mm.  On December my measurements were 59mm (above the normal) last week, the measurements were 48 mm NORMAL
I was astonished to see such improvement in 4 months and the cardiologist said it is remarkable, especially that I am 55 years young.
Testimonial by   Catherine Gross - Film Technician, Registered T5T Instructor

T5T Instructor - Catherine Gross"Working 10 hours a day on film sets is tiring & stressful. I had real concerns about the long drives I had to take as I would often fall asleep at the wheel. Sometimes I was so tired I would nod off on the way to work. Since taking up T5T I have no such worries any more. I sleep better & wake refreshed. T5T sets me up like nothing else & a quick session at the end of the day lets me drive with confidence. It really is a life saver! "

Testimonial by   Kathrine Harrison - Chiropractor

"T5T is one of the most sophisticated ‘take home’ exercises I’ve come across, for both my patients physical and mental wellbeing."

Testimonial by   Susan Hayward - Author of “A Guide for the Advanced Soul"

A Guide To The Advance Soul by Susan Hayward"I have practised yoga for many years but after having a baby (my third child) I needed some exercise that would put me back in shape and that took as little time as possible to do! T5T has been exactly what I needed. Now If I miss a day or two, I feel unbalanced, uncentred and low energy. They are so simple, yet so powerful in their effect. Thank you Carolinda!"

Testimonial by   Richard Meikle, Master Personal Trainer & Registered T5T Instructor

T5T Instructor - Richard Meikle"I thought I had enough things to do to maintain my health without adding yoga to my routine. Then I tried T5T. It's amazingly simple, time effective and powerful. I noticed increased energy, greater flexibility and mental clarity. For me, the whole system including the energy breathing, really feels like it's having a big impact on my internal health. Now T5T is the first thing I do every day. That says it all."

    Testimonial by    Rajendar Menen from Bombay, Author "Karma Sutra - Essays From The Margin", Journalist from Bombay, India

"I have been doing The Five Tibetans for 20 years or so. I have always been athletic and worked out regularly but after starting T5T the changes to my body and soul have been fantastic. I wish to share them and I hope more and more people benefit from T5T.

For one, it takes very little time. You can easily squeeze it into a busy urban executive existence. All you need is 15 minutes a day. You need no equipment, no special clothes, and need very little space. I do it in hotel rooms when I travel. You can also do T5T any time, more than once if you want to every day, as long as you do it on an empty stomach. It becomes a spiritual practice over time. it is easy, inexpensive, thankfully addictive and highly beneficial on all counts. You can't wait to do it the next day.

Two, your body gets incredibly strong. You even get muscular.

Three, all the chakras are optimised and you are radiant and filled with energy. There is no room for depression and loneliness and the feelings of a 'vacuum' that afflicts a lot of mankind.

Four, you automatically hit on 'healthy' food and so your health gets even better.

Five, your heart chakra gets optimised and you get less violent and more loving and kind.

Six, whatever your age (I have shared notes), your sexual energy doesn't dilute. I mention this because this is the age of viagra and sexual enhancement. Why buy expensive and damaging chemicals when T5T does the job?!

Seven, if done slowly and with awareness, T5T leads to great spiritual journeys. You are enveloped by bliss.

Eight, you get more disciplined and your output at work and play multiplies. Life is precious and very short and you realise it and enjoy it more. You also want to share the joys of 'existence'.

I was aiming at a short testimonial!!!

Happy T5Ting. "

Testimonial by   Ineke Humphrys

"I love to start my day with T5T exercises and breathing. I then feel expansive, alive and vibrant. I am more easily able to feel the Energy within that Eckhart Tolle talks about. So thank you to Bratislav and my friend Berhadette who told me about it!"
