What and How - Shining Skull Breath - kapalabhati

Brenda Rock

Shining skull breath is also known as kapalabhati breath.

Purifying and reviving the spirit. Excellent for boosting motivation as well as energy and strength.

It is the exhale that does the work, whereas the inhalation simply brings air in. The abdominals are of assistance.

After a sharp exhale, a chilled  inhale follows. There should be no emphasis on the inhalation; just let it happen.

5 rounds times 3

Take your time.

Stop what you're doing, take a few deep breaths, and get your bearings if you start to feel lightheaded or dizzy.

It is not a good idea to do this if you have high blood pressure, heart problems, a hernia, eye problems, or if you have recently had stomach surgery.

Caution: if you have breathing or lung concerns, and if you are pregnant, you should only engage in this activity after receiving appropriate guidance.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to work on a one to one basis for some breath coaching (in person or on-line).
