nauli with yogi nora

Nauli is one of the Kriyas or Shatkarma (cleaning exercises) from Yoga. The exercise is claimed to serve the cleaning of the abdominal region – digestive organs, small intestine and is based on a massage of the internal belly organs by a circular movement of the abdominal muscles. Nauli is generally done standing but it is possible to do it in other position like lotus, whereby the trunk is bent forward and is supported by the hands at the thighs. After a complete breath out the entire belly is strongly brought in and then the middle belly muscle is contracted and moved in a circle.
