Sunday 4:30 - 6:15 p.m.:
YOGA DETOX (SHATKARMAS) in Bodhi area.

(BIHAR SCHOOL OF YOGA presentation by Navvaratri, of Satyananda Yoga Center,

Bihar School of Yoga Teacher Certification & Satyananda Yoga.)

Hatha Yoga traditionally only consisted of these practices for cleansing the internal organs & anatomical systems.
Removal of mucus, bile, worms, toxins, wind, tensions can result in the regulation & balanced functioning of organs, systems, emotions, mind, energy (prana) & spirit; hence removal of some illnesses.

6 = Shat; Actions or practices = Karmas.

The doshas referred to in Ayurveda and Yoga: Kapha, mucus; Pitta, bile; Vata, wind
are brought into balance with each other & regulated.

These are powerful practices and should not be learned from books or inexperienced persons.
Only those taught to teach these practices from an experienced person who has the blessing to teach these to others,
may teach these practices and also then have the blessing & proper guidance to do so.

There are many health restrictions which apply to individual limitations & needs.

Traditionally there were many practices taught and performed differently.

However, today the mind set and needs of people have changed;

so practices taught today are geared and catered specifically to our current needs and mind set.  

This is not a workshop for you to teach the shatkarmas,
merely for your personal information and growth in the science of yoga.

Yoga Teacher Training Certification is necessary from Satyananda Yoga to teach these practices.
