Shat Karma is derived from the Sanskrit/Hindi language and means six cleansings, which are performed to remove toxins and waste from the body and can be performed very easily when needed. Our body is an excellent self sustaining system like an automatic super computer which controls a large number of functions. But sometimes it needs service. That service to the body can be provided through shat karma. It is the perfect yogic procedure to clean the body. If waste products are not removed properly and regularly, they lead to stagnation and ultimately various diseases. These six procedures (Kirya) are:

  • Neti Kirya
  • Dhoti Kirya
  • Nauli Kirya
  • Basti Kirya and Ganesh Kirya
  • Kapal Bhati
  • Tratak

Yog Sadhan Ashram teaches all cleansings by appointment on Sunday mornings, 7am to 9am. Please call 630-293-9554 to learn more.
