Shatkarma (the six purification methods in Hatha yoga)

Shatkarma is the Sanskrit term for one of the six yogic purification techniques (kriyas) as outlined in the "Hatha Yoga Pradipika." The purpose of these cleansing techniques is to keep the body strong, clean, and healthy. They are said to remove toxins and anything blocking the flow of prana in the body.

Practicing Shatkarma internally purifies the body, which makes pranayama and meditation practice easier by preparing the body to perform these practices without distraction, discomfort or fatigue. This is a traditional yogic cleansing technique which is very effective and good to remove many illnesses and open the body blockages.

Location

The school is situated in the heart of Rishikesh, next to the famous hanging bridge and the holy Ganga (the holy river). The school is peaceful and surrounded by beautiful green mountains. Everything is close by the school such as shops, cafes, restaurants, ATM, healthcare, organic stores.

Food

Daily freshly made vegetarian meals are included in the price. The food is fully prepared hygienically and the vegetables are organic. Rishikesh Yogkulam food is well known all around the world for its taste and verities. When diet is wrong medicine is of no use. When diet is correct medicine is of no need - Ayurvedic proverb.

Many people wonder if it is enough just to practice yoga. In itself, practicing yoga is not just a healthy life but at Rishikesh Yogkulam, they believe that it is also a way of living. But when complemented with the healthy food habits, it can really create wonders. In fact, eating the right food is an essential part of living a yogic life.

What you eat not only influences your physical well being but also your emotions and thoughts. Yoga does not dissect food into proteins, carbohydrates or fats, instead, it classifies them according to the effect they have on the body and mind, into three types - Satva, Rajas, and Tamas.

Tamasic food is the kind of food which makes you lethargic or sluggish, while Rajasic food is that which brings about activity or restlessness. Whereas, Sattvic food is the kind which makes you feel light, energetic, and enthusiastic.

Sattvic foods are those which purify the body and calm the mind. They stimulate the body and mind into action. Cooked food that is consumed within 3 - 4 hours can be considered Sattvic. Menus at the center are created by their master chef Sandeep Semwal who had worked with some of the best five-star hotels around the world and carries great knowledge about Sattvic diet.

Along with this, he focuses on hygiene practices at the institution to ensure the food is safe and carries great nutritional values which is much needed for a healthy life. Not just the right kind of food is important, it is vital to eat the proper quantity of food at the right time.

Overindulging leads to lethargy while under eating will not provide enough nourishment. Most of the times you know that your stomach is full but tempted by the taste buds, you tend to indulge. The right amount of food cannot be quantified into cups or grams. When you listen to your body attentively, you will know when exactly to stop!

You might eat the right kind of food in the right quantity but if you are irregular with your timings, then the whole system goes for a toss and the natural rhythm of the body is hampered. Therefore, it is of prime importance to eat food at the same time every day and eat it at regular intervals.

It is said that the state of the mind of the person cooking / eating also affects the food. The energy in the food cooked by someone while he / she was angry will definitely be lower than that of someone who cooked it with a feeling of love, contentment, and gratitude.

Listening to some soothing music or chanting while cooking and eating can help retain the prana (life force energy) in the food. It is definitely worthwhile to pay some attention to the food that you eat as the ancient Indian texts say that you are what you eat!
