Yoga and Body Cleansing (3.5 hours)

Improve Digestive System


 

Eliminate toxins and revitalise the digestive system with simple yoga movements and drinking saltwater/lime solution to cleanse the body.  This will strengthen your immune system and promote gut health.

Before the cleansing, we will do a pre-registration followed by simple morning yoga poses under the guidance of John Peh from Yogapoint. Please come with an empty stomach and meal is provided after the session.

The event is jointly organised by Yogapoint and Karma Kagyud Buddhist Centre (KKBC). 

 

To practice, prepare 1.5 litres of warm water, add 3 teaspoons of salt and 1-2 lime.
Sit down, relax and drink two glasses of the water. Try to drink continuously, not too slowly and not too fast. After drinking the water practice two sets of the exercises.
One set is as follows – 

  1. Tadasan – Palm Tree Pose – 6 x
  2. Tiryak Tadasan – Swaying Palm Tree Pose – 6 x to each side
  3. Kati Chakrasan – Waist Rotating Pose – 6 x to each side
  4. Tiryak Bhujangasana – Twisted Cobra – 6 x to each side
  5. Udarakarshanasan – Abdominal Stretch Pose – 6 x to each side
  6. Kauva Chalasan – Crow Walking – one round of the mat

Again drink two glasses of water and practice two sets of exercise. Repeat this one more time. There should be a total of six glasses of water and six sets of exercise. Even four glasses and four sets can have a beneficial effect. After completing take at least 10 minutes of shavasan and wait for half an hour before eating. If one needs to go to the bathroom at any time one should do so. Some people will find that the water starts to come through before finishing the practice whilst others will find they have looser motions later in the day. If one has severe constipation then it may only soften the stools and the practice should be repeated the next day.
