Vatsara Dhauti (Cleansing The Intestines With Air)

Vatsara Dhauti (cleansing the intestines with air) is a cleansing practice that focuses on removing stale gas and wind and stimulating the digestive system.

How To Do Vatsara Dhauti (Cleansing The Intestines With Air)

  • Sit in a comfortable position.
  • Open the mouth and purse the lips like a crow’s beak. Draw air down into the stomach through the open mouth in one sucking action or in a series of gulps. Choose which method is easiest.
  • Fill the stomach with air as much as possible.
  • Then relax completely.
  • Do not try to expel the air.
  • It will come out through the large intestine in its own time. Time of practice: This practice may be done at any time of the day, but it is most useful just before a large meal. It should not be done after meals.

Practice note while doing Vatsara Dhauti – Cleansing The Intestines With Air 

  • This practice is similar to bhujangini mudra. However, in bhujangini mudra the air is expelled by belch­ ing, whereas in vatsara dhauti the air is passed out through the intestines.
