Bhastrika Pranayama - The Bellows Breath

Pranayama is the conscious and deliberate control and regulation of the breath.

'Prana' means 'breath' 'ayam' means 'to control', 'to regulate' With each breath we absorb not only oxygen, but also Prana, cosmic energy, the Universal Power that creates, preserves and changes. 

 

Before Bhastrika Pranayama is attempted, each of the four levels of Nadi Shodhana Pranayama (Levels 1- 4 of YIDL System) should have been practiced for at least three months. Bhastrika should be practiced only under the guidance of an experienced yoga teacher.

Bhastrika Pranayama refreshes body and mind and has a rejuvenating influence upon the whole body and improves memory. Circulation is stimulated and the increased blood supply to the head improves eyesight and hearing. The lungs are strengthened and it is beneficial for bronchitis, as the respiratory system is quickly and deeply purified. The Digestive function is stimulated, improving metabolism. This breathing technique also activates the solar plexus and influences strongly on Manipura Chakra.

Truly interesting update about the Bhastrika Pranayama information in detail and all the words pretty popular as well. Various experts are providing the yoga training to the people for relaxing their mind. Thanks for sharing on assignmentmasters.co.uk review that would be thoughtful for the people who need such medication.

With a stronger breath than normal, and audible, take 20 breaths in rapid succession through the left nostril, followed by a full and deep breath, then do the same through the right nostril, and finally both nostrils together. Perform 2 - 4 rounds daily. Always check with an instructor before you begin the practice to ensure you are performing it correctly and that you are fully prepared.
