Shankhaprakshalana (cleansing the digestive tract)

3 & 10 September 2011

This is a wonderful practice with many benefits. It is especially good for alleviating many digestive problems and purifies both the physical and energy body. It involves drinking many rounds of warm, saline water and practising a series of postures to move the water through the digestive system. It is followed by kunjal (regurgitation of water) and neti (nasal cleansing).

After doing the full practice (poorna) you must follow a strict diet for one month. A shorter practice (laghoo) is also an option where there are no dietary restrictions.

Please download and read all the attached information BEFORE applying. To apply download and complete the application form and return it to the yoga centre with full payment. Cost £35.

Please note advance booking and full payment is essential, this practice is not held at the London Centre.
