Yoga Shatkarmas

edited by Madelyn Miller, the TravelLady

The ancient texts on yoga describe "Shatkarmas" or bodily purification techniques in addition to asana (poses) and pranayama (breathing techniques) as essential for the practice of yoga. The Shatkarmas bring energy, purity and a lightness of body and mind.

Complement your yoga practice and learn how to bring health and balance into your life with Yoga Cleanses, or "Shatkarmas" that Yogis have used for over 5000 years.
