Using a nasal rinse for self-care

We understand that our 5 senses are responsible for helping us assess the world outside of ourselves. In yoga, the sense of smell is our most primal antenna. Also, healthy breathing patterns rely on open airways. So we can start our self-care practice with some nasal cleansing by using a netti pot. Some yogis use one daily and some, before each meditation sitting. You can find them at any health food store and even many chain pharmacies and grocery stores in the nasal care section.
