Yoga and Body Cleansing (2.5 hours)

Improve Digestive System

 

Yoga provides a wide array of benefits to detox the body on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. Learn how you can eliminate toxins and revitalize the digestive system with simple yoga movements and cleanse your body by drinking salt/lime water.

Pre-registration will begin at 8 am. We will start the session with simple morning yoga under the guidance of John Peh, followed by guided saltwater cleanse. Please bring along your own yoga mat and come with an empty stomach. 

The event is jointly organised by Yogapoint and Karma Kagyud Buddhist Centre (KKBC). Please note that the session will be held at Karma Kagyud Buddhist Centre, Level 3 main shrine hall.


 

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 water. Try to drink continuously, not too slowly, and not too fast. After drinking the water practice two sets of 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 exercises. Repeat this one more time. There should be a total of six glasses of water and six sets of exercises. 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.
