..."T5T offers a ritual of breathing away the tensions both physically and emotionally, it offers a daily opportunity to stretch and strengthen the body as well as release the issues that we all carry in the moments of living our lives. As part of a process of both physical, emotional and psychological well being I can recommend T5T. It has become a part of my life and a valuable part of both starting my day and creating a sense of well being. T5T bridges the gap between the psychological and the physical and offers an effective and quick exercise ritual that enhances well being, vitality and inner strength. "...
Testimonial by Jan Jenson OBDS (Optimal Breathing Specialist) from NC, USA
"I’ve been one of those “health nuts” since 1968. Back in the mid 80’s I came across an article entitled “The Fountain of Youth” (which I STILL have!) and practiced the Tibetan Rites as brought back from Tibet by Col. Bradford.
I was in my mid-40’s and in EXCELLENT physical shape from working hard all my life, particularly since 1976 when I got into the ironworkers (as a single mom raising a daughter).
After practicing the 7 Tibetan Rites I experienced lower back and neck pains… so I quit doing them so often… and still the pain persisted whenever I DID the exercises – so I stopped!
Fast forward 25 years... I retired from ironworking in 2002 and began working in an office, sitting at a desk 8-12 hours a day. Flabby muscles just don’t get it… so I searched for simple exercises … and ran across the T5T website because of a breathing comment by Mike White (www.breathing.com), who trained me as an Optimal Breathing Development Specialist.
I began an email dialogue with Carolinda Witt about T5T, and learned it’s something I tried 20 years earlier, revised and improved to strengthen the back and neck as you do the postures.
I was eager to learn T5T because it’s EASY, EFFECTIVE and only takes 10-15 minutes a day to keep in shape and consistently FEEL GOOD! Carolinda's book makes it so easy to follow and learn - ANYONE can use it. I like the way you start slowly, building strength up gradually and focusing on developing core strength to protect the spine.
To my absolute delight, I discovered I CAN do these exercises. I also like the daily focus on breathing - the explanations in the book are really informative and clear. As a breathing coach, I know how incredibly important it is to breath correctly and Carolinda's method will certainly help most people breathe deeper, slower and fuller.
Starting slowly and building up repetitions helped me gain back physical strength, personal satisfaction and a feeling of well-being and satisfaction with my life once again! It’s wonderful, in my mid-60’s, to find something to be ENTHUSIASTIC about that utilizes much of what I teach in Optimal Breathing.
Everyone from 3 to 103 can learn to stay or get HEALTHY. It’s EASY, inexpensive, FUN and effective!
Testimonial by Jacqueline Dobie - MA Counselling
"I strongly recommend T5T to all seeking freshness of new life and energy. I myself successfully live with managing bronchitis. I found T5T helped my breath no-end. I have not had a chest infection once since I started T5T (in a winter period) normally I would have 4 -5 infections in one year, so far none. I recommend T5T to my clients with stress issues, to assist their breathing, their coping skills and stress management. "
Testimonial by Branko Kristevic - Chiropractor & Osteopath D.C, D
"The movements in T5T will improve your flexibility and strengthen your body. Coupled with correct full breathing, they help to delay aging by improving circulation, flushing out toxins and strengthening your immune system. T5T stimulates the flow of chi throughout the body increasing energy, releasing stress and providing you with a remarkable sense of well-being. As Carolinda’s Chiropractor for the last 13 years, I have seen first hand the enormous physical and mental benefits she and others have gained from T5T."
"T5T is a simple and invigorating set of exercises which improve physical and mental wellbeing. The very nature of the exercises and the teaching will enable anyone to increase their physical strength and joint mobility. The inclusion of breathing exercises not only assists in the movement of qi and meridian (life) energy but also in stress reduction and quieting the mind. The end result is daily balance and stability – the best combination for health and wellbeing. "
Testimonial by Terez Maru - Registered T5T® Instructor. Yoga Teacher
For many years I have experienced ringing in the ears (tinnitus). As you can imagine this is very annoying & disorientating. Since I started practicing T5T this has completely disappeared! I am a yoga teacher and a massage therapist and I recommend T5T to all my clients. In fact I have just trained as a Certified T5T Teacher as I can attest to its powerful benefits, physically, mentally and spiritually."
Testimonial by Kate Hopkins, Registered T5T® Instructor, Reiki I
"I was introduced to T5T by my sister, at a time in my life when my health had deteriorated. I began practising the rites on a daily basis. As a result, my energy and zest for life began to increase and surpass where I was previously. I started to feel much stronger in body and mind, more centered and at peace. I decided to attend Carolinda's Instructor Training course and haven't looked back since."
Testimonial by Jillian Naidu - Registered T5T® Instructor, Master Practitioner NLP, Sign Language Interpreter
"'Prior to discovering T5T I had suffered from long term back pain due to an injury. I had attended physiotherapy, Pilates and hydrotherapy for several years and yet was unable to recover fully from my back weakness. Now not only has my physical strength and flexibility improved greatly, I also find the breathing to be energizing and rejuvenating allowing me to embrace challenges and function at an optimal level. ’T5T is more than a simple and effective combination of exercises. This daily sequence is simple and easy to remember providing me with the vitality, clarity, energy and motivation needed to survive a high powered city existence. "
Testimonial by Helene Ludwig, BA Hon. MA. Dip. Aromatherapy, Therapeutic Massage, Bowen, NLP, Solution Oriented Hypnotherapy and Counselling, Reiki 1 & 2, Cert. T5T Teacher
""Fitness and wellbeing have always been important to me. I had been going to the gym and swimming pool for a number of years and, as much as I enjoyed that, I started to feel restricted and stressed by a schedule influenced by avoidance of crowd and traffic. When I heard Carolinda Witt talking about "just 10 minutes a day for health, vitality and wellbeing", I was absolutely delighted and decided to learn T5T. Since then, my lower back has greatly improved, my bowel movement is more regular, my bladder is better controlled. I somewhat get the feeling that my spine is defying gravity!"
Testimonial by Annabelle Brown. Acupuncture, Remedial Massage & Reiki
"Using the breathing and T5T together is dynamic. T5T works strongly around the lower chakras, strengthening & energising the Hara. To me it is the physical equivalent of Tibetan chanting. T5T has a strong action on the gut dispelling sluggishness and improving digestive function. I believe that the steps and emphasis Carolinda is using to attain good practice of T5T is safe, and provides a simple practice which takes a realistic amount of time.”
Testimonial by Lynda Santich – Pre-School Teacher, Entrepreneur Natural Health Industry, Registered T5T Instructor (& mother of three children)
"My chiropractor recommended that I learn T5T to improve my health. I used to experience a feeling that I couldn't breathe before learning the Energy Breathing method in T5T. The very first moment I started practising it, I felt that I could at last draw a full breath. This was a very rewarding experience for me. Within 3 months of practising T5T I was able to give up my use of Ventolin. My constant neck pain has completely cleared up and I feel stronger physically and mentally than I have for years. Being involved in the health industry has enabled me to seek out many alternatives to improve my health and wellbeing, but none have been as profound as practising T5T daily. The health benefits for me personally have been enormous; increased flexibility, stronger neck, back and abdominals, huge improvements in my breathing patterns, and increased mental clarity and focus. I believe T5T is the perfect complement to any health care system that people may have already chosen. "
Testimonial by Penelope Ward, Kinesiologist
I have been doing the 5 Tibetans now for 6 months, and I have noticed a few changes. My stamina is builidng slowly, and consequently I have more endurance than before; I am getting more strength in my arms, shoulders and wrists which had a weakness before; my body shape has changed and is more defined.. Two other important things I have learnt is that by doing them everyday, it has taught me consistency and discipline which I have managed to apply to other areas of my life. Also in the early days I did them very quickly and strained myself, so it has taught me to take things a little more slowly and by not necessarily doing the whole 21 in one go ( I do 8 - 10 in the am and pm) I am nurturing and honouring my body better.
Testimonial by Carolyn Tyrer, Natural Health Practitioner from NSW, Australia
..."I have practiced yoga on and off for over thirty years, but more often than not I find I cannot find the hour or so I need to do a daily practice. What I love about T5T is that it is a very achievable programme to perform daily. Once I start I know I will complete the whole routine within about fifteen minutes. Being a busy working mother I love that I can incorporate this routine in my life.
It is a gratifying way to start the day as it fires up all my engines and makes me mindful of my body. I recently underwent surgery in on my left wrist having a steel plate inserted to screw all my bones back in place. Performing the rites every day has certainly improved the flexibility of my wrist in record breaking time,and also the rest of my body.
I enjoyed the information Carolinda passed on whilst teaching us the rites and her care in making sure we were all in the perfect postures whilst staying mindful to the direction of our breathing."...
Testimonial by Susie Lapin - Physiotherapist from Sydney, Australia
"Users of this book will build up strength and flexibility if they follow Carolinda’s graded step to step plan – with mastery of each stage an essential goal before moving on to the next level of difficulty. The sections on breathing and core stability are a vital part of this program. The instructions are very clear and the use of many photographs makes this book easy to follow and a pleasure to use. "
Testimonial by Libby Ross - Registered Osteopath & Registered T5T Instructor
‘As an osteopath I was looking for an exercise routine that incorporated mind, body and spirit - something that was going to give me energy, strength and flexibility. I spend a lot of time bending over a bench and need good core stability to support my lower back, and T5T has given me this. As an osteopath I see many people injure themselves doing exercise they are not in condition for. However, what I like about T5T is that it is a gradual step by step program, taught safely and under close supervision. This enables gradual strength, flexibility, and core stability to develop - thereby minimising the risk of injury. The breathing and relaxation techniques compliment the rites and provide a solid platform for increased body and mind connection. These benefits combined with the ancient wisdom make T5T a powerful daily ritual and I recommend it to all my patients and anyone who wants improved health and vitality.’
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 Anni Casey - Accredited Natural Therapist, Massage, Meditation, Kinesiology
"I attended a workshop to learn the 5 Tibetan Rites and the teacher rushed through the Rites without giving consideration to technique or to performing the Rites safely. I was disappointed as I learnt nothing and therefore wasted my money. Not giving up hope, I searched the Web for books or DVD’s on the Rites. Fortunately I found Carolinda Witt’s T5T. The book is beautifully presented with a complete explanation of the background to the 5 Tibetan Rites and detailed pictures of each Rite broken down into steps. All the safety aspects and different fitness levels are addressed. I have found the companion DVD wonderful as it guides you through each week so that you flow naturally to the next level. If you are looking to learn the 5 Tibetan Rites, look no further – this is everything you need to gain an understanding of the Rites and perform them effectively. "
Testimonial by Kaye Gartner - Accupuncture, M. Health Science (TCM), Fellow AAC
"I have practiced T5T in the bedroom, at the beach, in the park; when travelling, when tired, when I didn’t really want to. My reward is a body that is lean and toned, with energy to spare. It has helped me manage peri menopausal symptoms of tiredness and low energy with ease. This is why I recommend T5T to my patients."
Testimonial by Tory Davidson, Registered T5T Instructor, Holistic Kinesiologist, Skin Therapist from Young, NSW, Australia
As a Holistic Kinesiologist I encourage visualizations and meditations. I also offer the idetox program within my Clinic. With this procedure my clients are required to be stationary for at least 30 minutes, and so it was a perfect opportunity to incorporate meditation within the treatment. For this I use Carolinda Witt's audio CD, which includes three meditations that focus on the Breath. The response from my clients has been of total relaxation and awareness of the power of the "Healing Breath". They just love it and have commented how wonderful it is to just STOP and BREATHE!!!!!!!!!
Testimonial by Richard Meikle, Master Personal Trainer & Registered T5T Instructor
"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 Bratislav Petrovic, Electronics Engineer, Registered T5T instructor, Gita International Diploma of Teaching Hatha Yoga, Reiki master, Inner Peace Meditation Teacher
"I had my ear drum damaged and felt realty dizzy when I had to spin during dancing. Around 4 years ago I learnt The Five Rites. Having done the Rites for a few weeks I went to a park with my kids who persuaded me to go on a swing. I started slowly and discovered that I could once again enjoy the swing and later on to even dance. I’ve been doing the Five Rites daily since then. "
Testimonial by Anita Boser - author of "Relieve Stiffness and Feel Young Again with Undulation"
"When I read the Ancient Secret of the Fountain of Youth years ago I was intrigued by the incredible results that readers achieved. However, the exercises were too difficult for me and I hurt my shoulder doing the fourth and fifth ones. Fast forward five years and I come across T5T: The 10-Minute Rejuvenation Plan. From day one, I was able to follow the plan from the book and do the exercises every day. I feel great!
Not only does the author break the exercises into steps that reduce the risk of injury, she includes core strength and breathing exercises that make the movements accessible to people who live in an industrial society. After all, we don't have the lifestyle of Tibetan monks. I also like the warm up exercises in the book, which help me prepare for hiking and jogging.
While these are exercises for the body and they do add strength and flexibility, the biggest impact is on my energy level. I get a sense of jubilation and feeling of being carefree that lasts through the day.
I highly recommend this book for people of all activity levels. If you are too tired, this plan will give you energy. If you already are active, this is a wonderful complement to any exercise program.
Testimonial by Dr. John F. Demartini - "The Secret" Teacher - Bestselling author of The Breakthrough Experience - A Revolutionary New Approach to Personal Transformation
"T5T is simple, practical, effective and certainly mind/body altering. If you would love to become rejuvenated, remain calm, feel more vitality, be more flexible and simply look your absolute best, then now there is a new way to experience a greater state of wellbeing that takes just minutes a day, but lasts a lifetime."
