Abdominal Cleansing – Agni Sara

Amazing!  This timed perfectly with last week’s Abdominal Adhesions Newsletter about the pelvic floor.  (I’m sure YI did that on purpose. 🙂 )  Anyhoo . . .

Wow, this is SUCH a great article.  The agni sara abdominal exercise is such a necessary and fundamental part of a yoga practice and it is discussed and taught SO WELL in this article!  It’s a rarity to see something come alive like this on the page.  Enjoy!

    • Hi Felicity, you’ve been through so much and I’m so sorry to hear it! It sounds really overwhelming. Just starting where you can with general health supports (adequate hydration, regular movement, support groups for medical trauma, etc.) can go a long way. And adding in more specific therapies such as specific massage therapy like I teach here and other forms of bodywork like acupuncture, physical therapy, etc. when you can. Once you start with the bodywork, recovery can take 2-3 years, especially when there’s been a lot of surgical intervention, and I know it can feel overwhelming to think about all of the work involved but I have seen a number of people get through it and feel so much better.
