To develop flexibility and endurance, wanting to improve mood and well-being, moving to self-knowledge, we must not forget that our body is not just an obedient executor of our orders. Our body is a part of ourselves, so we need to take proper care of it. Everyone needs cleansing the intestines, and yoga gives it additional meaning.
Yogis believe that most people’s minds are under the control of the body rather than the other way around. Therefore, if we learn to manage our body efficiently, then we will be able to train and develop our mind without much difficulty.
Of course, exercise is vital, but the yogis begin to develop the ability to control their body with cleansing the body. In the practice of yoga, purification is called Kriya.
The purpose of this practice is to remove harmful, poisonous or merely unnecessary substances from the body, the more so that the body is continually trying to get rid of them in the process of life activity. The kidneys remove elements circulating in the blood, such as uric acid and others. The salivary glands help us get rid of unnecessary substances too. Our body is designed by nature itself to get rid of waste through urination, bowel movements, breathing, evaporation from the skin.
The body can not get rid of all harmful substances on its own. We help it with this, cleansing the skin, allowing the pores to breathe freely, brushing teeth and so on. The practice of Kriya is aimed at improving the body get rid of harmful substances in those parts of the body that we neglect or are difficult to access. As a result, Kriya helps to eliminate many diseases that occur in these organs. Therefore, cleansing the intestines is so essential, and yoga emphasises this.
In the practice of yoga, there are six Kriya the special exercises for cleansing the eyes, oesophagus, stomach, respiratory system and the colon.
