Hatha Yoga Cleansing Practices  

If you have been practicing yoga postures for some time and wish to deepen your practice the hatha yoga cleansing practices may be of interest to you.

Shatkarmas Include:
• Laghoo Shankaprakshalana - intestinal wash - Asana - 6 postures 
• Kunjal kriya - stomach wash
• Jala Neti - nasal cleansing
• Trataka - concentrated gazing
• Yoga Nidra - deep relaxation
• Bhramari & Full Yogic Breath - pranayama - breathing techniques
• Yoga Health Management - Yoga as a lifestyle for mental and physical health and wellness 
Many people initially find yoga through the physical postures and may be surprised to discover that hatha yoga is one of several angas or branches of yoga. Hatha yoga was traditionally composed of the shatkarmas (six actions) to cleanse the physical body of the three impurities of phlegm, bile and wind and purify the pranic network of nadis in order to awaken dormant spiritual potential.
The aim of yoga is to balance, harmonize and integrate the entire human personality.
The hatha yoga cleansing retreat will be a weekend of simple practices including the shatkarmas, asana, pranayama, yoga nidra-deep relaxation, meditation and other regular ashram practice such as havan, kirtan and mantra chanting.
The program will allow time and space for periods of silence, personal reflection and self-study.
