What is Kapalbhati pranayama and Its Importance

According to Wikipedia Kapalabhati (Sanskrit: कपालभाति, romanized: kapālbhāti), also called the breath of fire, is an important Shatkarma, a yogic purification. Kapalbhati is made up of two Sanskrit words Kapal and Bhati. Where Kapala means head and Bhati means light. It is pranayama in which a person has to coordinate between the process of breathing and exhaling. If this pranayama is done in the right way, it makes the muscles of the body more active, as a result of which the muscles become stronger. Apart from this, it also motivates the respiratory organs to function properly.

The person who regularizes Kapalbhati Pranayama gets rid of his mental and physical problems. A person can also feel it easily every time he exhales. Kapalbhati is very easy to do and everyone can do it sitting. After doing this one feels a unique and spiritual peace. Only the person doing this pranayama can feel its benefits.

When you do Kapalbhati Pranayama, 90% of the toxic substances come out of your body with outgoing breath. With the continuous practice of Kapalabhati Pranayama, all the parts of the body are freed from the toxic element. Any healthy person can be identified by his shining forehead (head or head).

The proper explanation of Kapalabhati Pranayama is, "Shining head". It is possible to get a glow or shine on the head only if you practice this pranayama every day. This means that your forehead does not just shine from outside but this pranayama will help your intellect. It also makes your brain clean and sharp.

How To Do Kapalbhati/Steps

  • Firstly Sit with your legs bent and bend straight on the floor. Keep your back straight and close your eyes.
  •  Now keep the palm of your right hand comfortably on the right knee and the palm of the left hand on the left knee.
  • Take a deep breath and then exhale with full pressure. Only give pressure so that your stomach also goes inward while exhaling.
  • When you start breathing, listen to the sound of your breath and think that all the diseases of your body are coming out through the nose.
  • Do not put any pressure on it when you are breathing. You do not have to push too hard, just breathe every time.
  • Repeat this process continuously for five minutes and then take some rest. You can also do this pranayama for fifteen to thirty minutes.
  • Do not do Kapalbhati Pranayama at a very high speed. Do it very comfortably and do it again and again. 
  • After a round is over, relax and close your eyes. Feel the excitement manifested by pranayama in your body.
