Hi Jenni,
shat is six and kriyas are cleansing procedures,

the simple ones you can practise is jivhamula dhauti and the more stronger ones are vaarisaara dhauti and kunjal kriya or also shankh prakshalana.
the last ones require some proffesional to guide you for the first few times and ones you have practiced you can do it alone.

some other cleansing procedures are also

I practise Nouli regularly,
its an intense practise, but a very good one..

it nearly takes a year to be a master of it

it is has really good benefits like -
helps build energy
clean the system
and increase blood flow by cleaning the nadis or strotas ( body channels)

you can also ask our team they can guide you-

it is a practised by yoga practitioners to gaze at a point till the eyes water.
I have been told by many practisioners they do this for 1 to 2 mins till eyes water and can be repeated with breaks.

however my understanding is looking at a candle for 30 seconds to 2 minutes till eyes water, and after this we recommend not to look at any screens or bright light. best practised late evening. ( one can do this practise and can later go to sleep)

benefits - to improve vision. ( needs to be done minimum for 2 to 3 months )

Dear Readers,

i also want to clarify as many people ask us if Nadi shodhana is also a kriya in the shat kriyas,

as what the sutras and the texts say, i would say no.

it is better to stick to the 6 kriyas we mentioned.
i am saying this as i have heard many schools also say nadi shodhana is a kriya..
