Uncover the transforming power of Bhastrika breathing, the age-old technique known as the "bellows breath." This rhythmic, energizing method opens the door to deep cleansing and renewal that affects every part of your being—mental, physical, and emotional.

Bhastrika breath is not just a series of inhalations and exhalations; it is a voyage within that stimulates the heart rate, improves respiratory function, purges organs, and controls blood circulation. The purposeful, strong breathing pattern establishes a special rhythm that leads you into a state of increased vitality and awareness.

Bhastrika transcends traditional breathing patterns by cultivating an awareness of the upward movement of the breath. By promoting a harmony between the mind and body, the practice provides a safe haven for emotional release, mental clarity, and physical well-being.

After practicing this age-old method, you can reap the benefits of relaxation and decompression by reclining on your back. Bhastrika breath is a conscious path of self-discovery and connection, not just a physical activity. Accept the rejuvenation it offers and go about your day with a renewed sense of purpose and clarity.

Include Bhastrika breath as a tool in your practice for inner purification, revitalization, and a renewed sense of connection to your inner self.

- Okay, so this is... Bhastrika breathing means "bellows breath". This breath is one of the absolute best ways to cleanse yourself mentally, physically, emotionally. It cleanses your organs, it cleanses your breathing system, your respiratory system, the movement of your blood, the heart rate, brain movement, nerve cells, everything. So, it is a quicker breath, and so I want you to put your hand on your belly and then exhale kind of quick with a push, , and the belly's gonna go in. Now, people exhaling and tend to go down. We wanna go up, . And it's quick, poppy breath. We'll do 30 rounds, a complete exhale after, a really deep breath in, we'll hold the breath for 30 seconds, let the breath out, and do two more rounds after that so we're working in groups of threes. So take a deep breath in. Follow me. You can place your head on your belly and start exhaling. Exhale, exhale, exhale, exhale, exhale. Deep breath in. Lift your chin. Chest up, chin down, hold it. 30 seconds. Lift the chin, exhale. Very slow inhale. Hand on belly once again. Exhale, exhale, exhale, exhale. Inhale. Hold it. Exhale. Last one. Deep breath in... Hand to the belly. Inhale slow. Chest up, chin down. And exhale slow. Take a breath in. Exhale... Again, inhale... And exhale. Last one. Inhale... Exhale. Okay, and lie on your back. Just take a couple minutes here to let everything decompress. Feel the effects. When you return, take your time. You wanna roll to a side. Do not want to just jump right up. Roll up to a seat, take a moment with your eyes closed. Perhaps say a prayer, an intention before you go. So let's roll to the side. Lie there for a moment. Come up. If you'd like, hands to the heart in prayer. You just keep your hands to your knees. An intention, perhaps, a positive affirmation. An attitude of gratitude, of prayer to a higher being, greater self. Thank you. Have a wonderful day.
