The advanced concepts of Vaasi yoga can only be learned in the presence of and with the guidance of a guru. By cleansing the nadis, Vaasi yoga allows life force energy (prana) to flow, healing the body and soul on the way to Self-realization and enlightenment. At the final stage of Vaasi yoga, the external breath is suspended and the inner breath takes over.
Vaasi yoga follows the following stages:
- The guru identifies imbalances among the nadis, which must be stabilized before practicing any type of yoga.
- The guru teaches asanas and breathing techniques to clear any waste, such as mucus, urine, sweat, gas and motion. After a time (typically three months), such practice brings the breath into control.
- Only after the breath is in control, can the practitioner (called a satguru) realize the true Self, which is the final stage.
