In this issue, I’m going to tell you of a power-breathing
technique that is proven to help overcome blues, negativity,
stress, depression – all, in a minute!!
Almost ALL mind-body schools and cults have used this single
mind-detoxification technique in some form or the other - with
dramatic results!! More importantly, it is the ONLY technique
used exclusively for mind purification among all the Yoga
It is called cleansing breath or
“kapalbhati” in Sanskrit.
So we all know that “Laughter is the best medicine”. But do you
really know why??
No points for guessing - because, it works exactly the same way
as this cleansing breath technique.
Kapalbhati has a remarkable effect as
a de-stressing tool and clearing the mind of negative emotions.
In fact, the Sanskrit words “Kapal” means the skull and "bhati”
means polishing / shining.
“Kapalbhati”, as the name suggests, is a method to make the head
“sparkling clean” and devoid of toxins.
