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.

Like Christian hymns or any other melodic form of song with meaningful words sung in repetition, Kirtan has its roots in chant derived from Sanskrit language, evoking a sense of deep devotion and reverence. The name itself has Hindi roots, but in many modern styles of Kirtan music, there’s no specific religious dogma … just people enjoying the sounds of words leaving their lips, movement inspired by the movement, all accompanied by simple instruments.
