Bhastrika Pranayam For Heart - Yoga Breathing - Treatment, Tips & Cure in Tamil

  • 8 years ago
"Bhastrika is one of the most important pranayamas. It is a very mysterious pranayama and not much is known about it. However, many believe that it is a combination of Kapalbhati & Anulom Vilom pranyamas. It is a breathing technique where breathing is forcible and through the nose, with equal time for inhalation and exhalation. Bhastrika Pranayama is aimed at keeping the inhalation cycle equal to exhalation, yet making breath deeper and longer. Deep breath inwards and long exhalation outwards with equal time intervals constitutes this pranayama technique.

Steps For Bhastrika Pranayama:

1) Inhale and exhale quickly twenty times like the bellows of the blacksmith. While inhaling and exhaling a hissing sound is produced. You should start with rapid expulsions of breath following one another in rapid succession.
2) When the required number of expulsions, say ten for a round, is finished, the final expulsion is followed by a deepest possible inhalation.
3) The breath is suspended as long as it could be done with comfort.
4) Then deepest possible exhalation is done very slowly. The end of this deep exhalation completes one set of this pranayama.
5) Rest a while after one set by taking a few normal breaths. Do three sets daily in the morning.
