In this Video you will learn Kapalabhati and Ajagari, two essential breathing techniques we use for the Kundalini Yoga Parampara practice. Watch this video before you go for the practice videos!

These two exercises already bring many benefits. They are strongly vitalizing and cleansing. Ajagari is stimulating the vagus nervus and consequently activates the parasympathetic nervous system, which will calm your mind and relax your whole body. Kapalabhati will harmonize the hormonal system and, for example, regulate the serotonin production.

By learning these two breathing techniques, you are adding two very powerful tools to your Yoga practice that you will never want to miss again.

In this 66 minute practice we will activate the parasympathethic nervous system and we will be working on our whole body from head to toes. The Yogic Sukshma Vyayama is the preparation of the body for higher yogic practices. This series of exercises are easy to do, very effective and  perfect for everyone to build up a strong and healthy body and calm the mind. It is very important to strengthen all parts of our body equally so and equilibrium can be established. The Yogic Sukshma Vyayama is cleansing, strengthening, calming and energizing at the same time.

The yogic sthula vyayama is also designed to work on the whole body. This shorter video is perfect to work your whole body if you have little time for practice. The exercises are physcially a little more demanding but still easy to learn and very beneficial.

In this one hour practice video I designed a flow consisting of exercises from the Yogic Sukshma Vyayama mixed with asanas and exercises I learned directly from my teacher in workshops and classes. This flow will lead you into a deeper experience of the bliss of bhujangini and will leave you deeply relaxed and refreshed.

Welcome to the second part of this course  - the Shat Karmas!

The yogic cleansing exercises called Shat Karmas are of significant importance for a profound, serious, and successful yogic practice. These exercises are a powerful tool to not only keep your body healthy and strong all your life but to initiate a powerful process that will help to release traumatic experiences stored in the muscles and tissues and break free from limiting conditionings that are holding us back from living up to our full potential. Watch this video to get more insight into what I mean by this!

Kunjala is the first of the 6 cleansing exercises, called Shat Karmas, to learn. This procedure also cleanses the skin and makes pimples and other skin diseases disappear. It also cures diseases of the teeth, rebounds the heart function, heals breast disease, constipation, and other indigestion, bile problems, asthma, rickets, angina, night blindness, and many other conditions.

Numerous nerves of the navel center, in particular, the solar plexus, are strongly stimulated and by activation of the vagus nerve the parasympathetic nervous system is stimulated, which is a blessing for the heart and at the same time sets in motion the heat-producing processes of the abdomen.

Kunjala will help you to gain control of the reflex of vomiting which makes this exercise a prerequisite for the next Shat Karma exercise Sutra & Jala Neti. Practice this 40 days in a row and then once a week or once a month.

!WARNING! Do not practice this when you suffer from heart disease or high blood pressure!

The second Shat Karma cleansing exercise consists of Sutra & Jala Neti. You need a pair of Neti-Strings and a Neti-Pot for this one. Make sure you practiced Kunjala, the first Shat Karma exercise, for a sufficient amount of time before you proceed with Sutra & Jala Neti. This exercise is said to eliminate all diseases above the shoulders. Due to the slight friction caused by gently pulling the strings back and forth all the Nadis in the head region are activated causing a strong flush of life force. Practiced regularly, this exercise will keep your nose, ears, and teeth healthy and your eyes will shine like diamonds. Sutra & Jala Neti is an excellent cure against headaches, inertness, and insomnia. It also helps against hair loss, is said to stimulate the intellect and eliminates forgetfulness. The positive effects of this exercise can already be felt after the first practice.

You can buy Neti Strings and a Neti Pot in any good Yoga Shop or online. If you are having trouble getting these requisites, don´t hesitate to contact me. I will be very happy to help you get them :)

Shat Karma 2 - Sutra & Jala Neti
05:43

Nauli Kriya, the third exercise of the Shat Karmas, is a very powerful cleansing exercise that will also massage and strengthen the inner organs as well as tone the abdominal muscles. This exercise is stimulating the vagus nervus which consequently is activating the solar plexus and slows down the heartbeat. By slowing down the heartbeat also the blood flow to the brain will slow down slightly which is very beneficial. Nauli is a powerful tool to get rid of flatulence too.

In the Hatha-Yoga-Pradipika they say that Nauli Kriya is lighting the fire of digestion and eliminates all diseases in the lower body and gifts the practitioner with delight.
