Oil Pulling
Ancient Ayruvedic Healing Treatment

A common reason for oil pulling is to gain relief from congestion in the sinuses and throat. It is incredible how quickly it happens! Soon after rinsing, you will find yourself blowing your nose and clearing your throat. I have worked with people struggling with chronic sinus congestion chronic sinus congestion who experienced relief like nothing else just after oil pulling only once! Their condition improved and congestion eventually went away.

To oil pull, simply swish your choice of unrefined, high quality oil in your mouth; similar to the way you would use a mouthwash. The best to use is organic coconut oil or organic sesame oil. Sesame oil (this oil is traditionally used).
Use ½ to 1 full tablespoon of oil into the mouth; Once it has melted in your mouth, push, swirl, and pull the oil between the teeth, around gums, and allow it to touch every part of your mouth except your throat. You don’t want the oil getting in contact with your throat because the oil starts to carry toxic material. No gargling! Pull the oil from about five to 20 minutes.

The process attracts and removes bacteria, toxins, and parasites that live in your mouth or lymph system, and also pullscongestion and mucus from your throat and loosens up your sinuses, which is amazing! With the
help of your saliva, all these scary undesirables bind with the oil, ready to be disposed of. Pulling also helpsre-mineralize your teethand strengthen your gums by thoroughly cleansing the area. Your skin becomes bright and glowing. Coconut oil has been proven to be beneficial to those with skin disorders such as psoriasis,and is great for anyone who wants to detox and improve theirimmune system.
Traditionally, oil pullers used virgin sesame oil. The reason I prefer to use rawcoconut oil is because it is antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and enzymatic.This provides the added benefit of killing any unwanted bacteria that may be residing in the mouth, while leaving behind healthy probiotic strains. A perfect exchange!

Once your time pulling is over, spit into the trash or toilet, not down the sink — the oil solidifies and clogs drains. Rinse
your mouth out with clean water two or three times, clean your teeth, drink a glass of water and relax.

Oil pulling can be done at any time of the day, but for a more thorough detox, it’s best to do this in the morning, before eating, drinking & brushing teeth.

This is truly a beneficial and worthwhile good healing habit to include into your daily rituals. Make it easy by doing other morning toiletry regimes at the same time. Eg, you could look into the bathroom mirror, into your eyes and affirm how much you accept and love yourself, make your intention for a beautiful and successful day! Most of all enjoy the process! Namaste Love.

Kate Nirlipta is an inspiring beautiful teacher, she taught me how to balance my unbalanced guna's, she gave encouragement with her compassion and I had special emotional moment through her session class. Thank you for guiding me to understand the "Svadhyaya" and the yoga lifestyle about "cleaning the mirror" and "spreading the light". Always love her meditation, relaxation and evening activity. Love the healing power of song "I am the light of my soul" every time I hear the song my heart & soul feels like a blooming lotus flower. I feel so blessed to have you as my teacher and you have helped me to spread my wings…absolutely transforming. Terima kasih banyak ibu cantik. Love always

I am delighted to recommend Kate Nirlipta to anyone at all who is interested in experiencing heart based wisdom through embodied yoga. She is simply the best yoga teacher I have been fortunate enough to learn from. Her approach remains influential in my own practice and teaching. Kate first inspired me fifteen years ago to practice yoga. I was an ex dance teacher still grappling with issues resulting from a car accident and a crushed T12. Her sensitive and knowledgable teaching helped me discover a new way of experiencing my self and my body and began my love affair with the transformative power of yoga on all levels. She also introduced me to the incredible practice of Yoga Nidra . Last year in 2012 I attended a yoga teacher training intensive in Bali largely for the opportunity to again learn from Kate. Her mastery as a teacher and her heart felt warmth and compassion was acknowledged and highly valued by all in the course who were wide ranging in age and cultural backgrounds. She embodies her teaching and has encouraged us all to find our own authentic way to do this in our practice and the classes we offer. I'm deeply grateful for the opportunity to learn from her and would encourage anyone of any age or experience to take to opportunity to learn from this outstanding teacher.

I love yoga with Kate! Yoga day is my favourite day of the week, a special time I dedicate to myself.
Kate has shown me that yoga is so much more than postures and stretches.Her knowledge and experience is shared gently with love and kindness.The Breathing Space studio is filled with loving, healing energy. Natural light floods the room, the birds sing in the garden and the ocean waves area gentle sigh in the distance. A very special place to practice yoga and meditation.
I feel blessed to have found Kate and her classes. Her yoga is the real deal, truly a mind, body and spirit experience. Thank you Kate.
