Kapalabhati for Purification & Revitalization (All Levels)


The practice of kapalabhati is one of the most efficient and effective pranayamas (breathing exercises) for dispelling the inertia, congestion, and stagnation that tend to build up in the body and mind. In this short tutorial, Sandra Anderson walks us through the essentials of this traditional cleansing practice. With the resulting enlivening of prana (life energy), our innate desire to know ourselves at the deepest level begins to blossom.
