Kriya – Yogic Hygiene

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

In addition to the generally accepted external rules of hygiene, the health practices of Yoga advise additional internal cleansing of the body. Consideration of purification also extends to include the whole psyche that eradicates ill thought and feeling.

The first physical practices known as the Shat Kriyas or 6 traditional cleansing practices of Hatha Yoga are used for correcting symptoms as well as for preventing disease.  Some are incorporated in common Hindu health practices in the home and others are specifically used in yoga ashrams.
