What does it mean to "cleans" the body?
Can I treat my illnesses before I cleanse?
Why do you yogis do this stuff? Do I have to do this stuff?
All of it?
Learn about the shatkryas a bit more on this website. Muy interesante.
I personally scrape my tongue firs thing in the am then use a neti pot. That's about as much as I do that might be considered a bit strange to the average person. But TBH, it's very good for you to clean the tonge and the airways of the nose. So calm down people, I'm not a weirdo. Give it a shot. You may find you have fresh breath all day everyday just by getting that disgusting crap off your tongue.
BTW, I look just as fabulous as this lady while I neti. Namaste.
