Nasal cleansing through lukewarm saline water
Cleanse your sinuses and breathe easier with this cleansing technique. Neutral saline water is passed through oral breathing from left nostril to the right nostril (and vice-versa) for about 5 to 7 minutes. It can effectively treat conditions like rhinitis, sinusitis, nose block, DNS (deviated nasal septum), and all allergic conditions.
Frontal cleansing breathing exercise
Open up your lungs and experience a heightened awareness of breath. This cleansing exercise involves continuously exhaling one breath per second without inhalation. Through this exercise, the lungs are emptied and inhalation is improved. This is an effective exercise for the lungs, chest cavity, and abdominal organs.
Gazing eye exercises
Cleanse and comfort your eyes with this revitalizing cleansing technique. In this therapy, guests are asked to focus on one point (such as a point on the wall, a candle light, or the tip of a thumb), until tears fall from their eyes. The eyes are then given a soft touch by the palms for a minute. This exercise can improve eyesight, concentration, and mental stability.
Nasal cleansing with a disposable rubber catheter
Enjoy the breath of fresh air you’ve been seeking with this yoga therapy. In this cleansing technique, a rubber catheter is slowly inserted through the nasal passage by entering the nostril and exiting the mouth. The slow and relaxed movement of the catheter in the nasal passage can help clear up congestion and making breathing easier. This technique is also effective for all allergy cases, sinusitis, rhinitis, DNS (deflated nasal septum), migraine, headaches, asthma, and bronchitis.
Stomach cleansing through lukewarm saline/herbal water
Cleanse your body of harmful toxins with this yoga therapy. In this cleansing technique, the guest will drink hot water treated with lemon and/or a pinch of salt to induce vomiting. This technique can be effective for guests suffering from acidity, indigestion, cold, cough, asthma, migraine, and headaches. If you suffer from conditions such as stomach ulcers or colitis, you should avoid this cleansing technique.
Triphala Eye Wash
Eye cleansing through herbal water
Cleanse your eyes with this revitalizing technique. Triphala powder is soaked overnight in water and strained before being poured into eye cups and applied to the eyes. This technique is used to clear impurities and debris from the eyes.
Sheetali and Sheetkari
Cooling breathing exercises and hissing breathing exercises
For Sheetali, the guest is asked to pull breath in through a rolled tongue and then exhale normally through the nose. For Sheetkari, the guest is asked to keep teeth clenched and pull breath in through the teeth and exhale normally through the nose. This practice is used to cool the body and quench thirst.
This practice involves voluntary regulation of the breathing pattern, using control over the rate in which inhalation and exhalation is performed. This practice brings down the respiratory rate and helps improve involuntary breathing patterns.
Psychic breathing exercises
For this technique, the guest sits in a comfortable posture with their eyes closed. The guest then inhales through the nose by congesting the throat, creating a hoarse gushing sound. This is repeated in the exhalation process too and should be carried out for 5 to 10 rounds.
Meditation is led through both group and individual sessions. Guests are given a basic intro on how to meditate and make it part of their daily routine and life. Ancient meditation practices such as Vipassana are used to cultivate greater awareness and mindfulness.
This unique practice involves slow exercise, postures, regulation of breath, prayer and concentration. The practice is composed of 12 postures and 12 mantras (chants) where the sun is treated as God and friend. The exercise is beneficial for all the organs and joints, and doubles circulation all over the body.
Alternate nostril breathing exercises
In this breathing technique, guests inhale slow and deep breaths through one nostril and exhale from the other nostril. This pattern is repeated 5-10 times and inhalation and exhalation alters between nostrils. This alternative breathing pattern brings balance to the left nostril (Chandra naadi) and the right nostril (Surya naadi).
Humming bee breathing exercises
The guest is seated in a comfortable position for this exercise and practices inhalation and exhalation through a humming sound. This gives the effect of sound vibration all over the body and can release the mind of agitation, frustration, and anxiety.
Bellows breathing exercises
This breathing exercise involves active inhalation and exhalation being continuously carried out with the full movement of the abdomen going in and out. This breathing pattern exercises the abdominal and chest organs.
