Yes it's this again.

Surprisingly I've been unable to find a definite final answer to the ongoing question, even in the archive for this site.

So please tell me, 1. do these exercises improve one's health across the board and slow down aging? and 2. is this set of five exercises Tibetan in origin?

"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."

1. They are pretty basic exercises which I can't see doing any harm as long as one is careful(as with any exercise). Moving the body is good. Don't know about the aging thing but the healthier your body is the better in the long term.

2. I vaguely remember a thread on e-sangha where someone said they had some similarities and were likely lifted and modified from some kagyu trulkhor exercises or preliminary exercises, something like that.
