Kapalbhati Yoga and Yoga Benefits

This set of exercises aimed at solving two problems – improving the activity of the digestive system and improve the ability to observe the sensations of the body.

These tasks are combined, because when dealing with bodily sensations (prana, etc.) is important to start with the stomach and creating a stable “dominant sensations,” that they subjectively, there have been more pronounced than in other parts of body.

1. Kapalbhati

1. In a seated position with a flat back many times as you exhale sharply reducing pelvic floor muscles. This surge voltage resembles the case when a person restrains a chuckle. Do not try to breathe heavily. Exhale very sharp, a portion of the air – small – as in a short laugh, and so on chihe inspiration muscles relax, think about the inspiration is not necessary, it is by itself on the relaxation of pelvic muscles after contraction. Everything happens very fast – about one breath per second. Reps 40-100.
2. First, if possible, running alternately through different nostrils. Then, through both at once. When alternating breathing is more intense stimulation of the mucosa and the brain. When breathing through both nostrils can be milked more intense contractions of pelvic muscles.
3. Then again, repeat the diaphragmatic breathing, associate in the attention the abdominal and pelvic area in one unit.
4. Purpose: cleaning the nasal passages, the tone stimulation of wakefulness, stimulation of blood circulation in the pelvis, which improves the setting of attention on the sensations in the region.
