Hatha Yoga Sutra Neti

Sutra neti (nasal cleaning with thread) is an advanced process for cleaning the nose. It supplements and performs the same function as jala neti, namely it cleans and removes blockages in the nasal passages1. In this way, free flow of air through both nostrils is achieved, this being so important for many yogic practices as well as general health.

In jala neti, salt water is used to clean the nose; in sutra neti a catheter (a long, thin rubber tube) or twined strands of cotton thread are passed through the nostrils.
