I am familiar with the benefits of Tai-Chi, Qi-Gong, Meditation, Martial Arts, etc. Most take a couple of years of training, and 1-3 hours a day of practice to achieve the health benefits that these 6 exercises will give in 10-15 minutes a day, and you'll start feeling the benefit nearly immediately. At least I did. I'm 48 and due to various debilities can't lift weights or do violent exercises any more. I've done the rites now for about 8 months and I can move pretty much pain free and rapidly. I've benefited mentally and physically vastly out of proportion to the apparent simplicity and brevity of these exercises. I bugged my 70's something dad to try them, and once he found out how much his energy and strength levels improved, he now does the rites daily. Mom is still trying to figure out what's going on, but even she's impressed with dad's increased energy levels. Remember, they will improve your physical and mental condition, but the rites are not a cure-all. Buy the book(s) and try them anyway.

Kilham brings to The Five Tibetans nicely written chapters about kundalini, the chakras and an especially insightful instruction on the role of breathing while doing each rite. Excellent and recommended.
