Course Syllabus

Nauli is the churning of the abdominal muscles. The abdominal recti are isolated and then a wavelike motion is initiated. A vacuum is created in the intestines and abdomen, which helps to massage the abdominal organs, makes the heart, lungs and abdominal organs strong, returns them to health and expels any accumulated toxins.

According to the yogic shastras (scriptures) it increases agni, boosts the immune system, turns the chakras upwards, purifies the Manipura chakra, helps convert pitta into agni, assists in raising Kundalini and confers mastery of external breath retention and Bahya Uddiyana.
