Kapalbhati & Bhastrika
In this video Gurumaaji expounds upon two breathing techniques Kapalbhati and Bhastrika Pranayam. Leading our busy and hectic lives, many of us have forgotten the right way to breathe. Breathing properly helps our body increase its intake of oxygen, which in turn leads to a more healthy and energetic body. It also helps expulsion of toxic products and carbon dioxide and cleanses our entire system. Breathing properly also leads to a calm and peaceful mind free of worry and anxiety.
Bhastrika Pranayam is aimed at keeping the inhalation cycle equal to exhalation, yet making breath deeper and longer. Deep breath inwards and long exhalation outwards with equal time intervals constitutes this pranayam technique. Kapalbhati is another technique where short and strong forceful exhalations are stressed upon and inhalation happens automatically.
Cleanse your breath with pranayam following Gurumaaji’s instructions in this video and enjoy the moments of silence and stillness that follow it.
