Jala Neti kriya

  • The sinus passages are cleansed with warm saline water in the Jala Neti kriya (nasal washing). Yogis have been practicing yoga for ages because of the numerous and strong benefits it provides. It's also known as Neti irrigation or saline nasal irrigation. Yoga practitioners use Jal Neti to stay disease-free and, more significantly, to properly use their breath in their yoga exercises. In the same manner that brushing your teeth is dental hygiene, Jal Neti is nasal hygiene. The nasal canal, which runs from the nostrils to the throat, is cleansed and cleared with water. Hatha Yoga Pradeepika's six cleaning processes, or 'Shatkarmas,' include Jal Neti.
