Beginners’ Pranayama

Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra tells us that Pranayama thins the veil that clouds our inner light. It makes the mind clearer and more focused and brings the mind great freedom from angst and doubt. Sarah Guglielmi from Yoga International demonstrates two vigorous pranayama practices—kapalabhati (skull-shining breath) and bhastrika (bellows breath)—both of which involve forceful breathing. Learn step-by-step how to exhale and inhale forcefully without disrupting the nervous system and how to coordinate the motion of the abdominal wall and the diaphragm so that you gain all of the benefits of pranayama.
