This is a short video explaining how to practice Kapalabhati, a breathing exercise which is often translated to ‘Skull Shining Breath’. Kapalabhati is a steady repetition of short, powerful exhales and passive inhales. You’ll be focusing on exhalation and let inhalation to happen automatically.


Do not practice Kapalabhati if you are pregnant. You may want to stop during the 3 days of your moon cycle and practice slower paced Kapalabhati towards the end of your moon cycle.

Kapalabhati balances all Doshas and it purifies the Five Elements. Practicing Kapalabhati is great for your skin as it is said to aid the removal of toxins from your body. It is also meant to help boost your immune system and improves lung capacity.
