Kriyas – cleansing, purifying and enhancing the practice of Yoga

These techniques are part of the Shatkriyas (or Shatkarmas), which are six purification techniques of Hatha Yoga, very important to release impurities and thus obtain better benefits with Asana, Pranayama and Meditation. In addition to cleaning and detoxing the physical body, these practices also help to purify and calm the mind during its process, as well as balance the three doshas (Kapha, Pitta and Vata).
