By Indian Ayurvedic and Yogic principles the root source of all illnesses are a misadjusted spine and an unhealthy or unclean Digestive/ Elimination tract. That is why there are a lot of asanas and kriyas that are directed to the spine and the Digestive /Elimination tract.
The nauli Kriya is one such exercise directed primarily to the digestive /Elimination tract. It is an abdominal churning action done with the help of the rectus muscle. It is one of the 11 kriyas for cleansing the entire body . The goal of a yogi is to purify the body systems at the prana level – which must start at the physical level. A purified body free of all waste materials and toxins coaxed by certain yogic exercise like nauli kriya lead to purification at the pranic level (the energy body of man). A purified prana body is then fit for further spiritual discipline and true meditation.
The primary physical advantages of Nauli Kriya are
- Good digestion
- Elimination of all abdominal ailments
- Sound peristaltic movement
- Eradicate chronic constipation.
- Liver and pancreas are toned
- Higher sensory experience
- Clearer and calmer mental awareness
- Sense of calm high energy
The practice of Nauli kriya is easier than it looks – beginners may feel a little pain in the first few days – this is nothing to worry about. The discomfort will vanish in a few days. [Article View] : 2164
