Vatasara Dhauti or Wind Passing

Technique

Suck in the breath slowly through the mouth, shaping it like the crow beak. Then hold it inside the stomach, for the air thus sucked must go to the stomach through the food pipe. Retain the air up to your normal capacity of doing so and then blow it out through the same route i.e. the mouth.

 

Benefits

  • Purifies the stomach by means of air.
  • Cures many diseases and considerably improves digestion.
