Purification of body prior to Yoga practice

Prior to practising Yogasana, Pranayama and meditation, it is desirable and also necessary to detoxify and purify the body.

Toxic properties accumulate in the body for a number of reasons. If these toxins are not eliminated from the body, one would not get the desired benefits of Yogasanas and Pranayama.

The Yoga-shastra has shown six types of techniques (The kriyas) of internal purification.

  • dhauti,
  • nauli,
  • basti,
  • tratak and
  • kapalbhati.
