Live to 100 Workout

Approximately 2,000 years ago, it was not uncommon for Tibetan monks to reach 120 years of age, which they attributed to their unique daily workout: a series of 21 stretches and exercises, each performed 21 times a day. Our fitness guru, Sarah Robichaud, has condensed their regimen into five rites that can be performed in just ten minutes a day.

Note: Beginners should start with three reps of each posture and slowly work their way up, adding two reps a day, until the core is strong enough to repeat the full 21 repetitions.
