Pradeep Teotia

Kapalabhati is one of the six Shatkarmas or methods of internal purification in Hatha Yoga. Kapalbhati is a breathing technique using rapid inhalation and exhalation to cleanse the cranial sinuses. In Sanskrit, ‘Kapal’ means the skull and ‘Bhati’ means to shine or illuminate.

Forceful exhalation, which is the main focus of Kapalabhati, throws out the stale air from the lungs. The deep inhalation increases the oxygen content in the blood.

This breathing method is not difficult, though it sometimes takes a little bit of getting used to at first. Watch and listen to Pradeep explain it in his unique and gentle way.
