Say NO to Kapalbhati and Bhastrika!

Breath discipline is liberating – If breathing is what keeps us going then logically its strength, frequency and quality should also be affecting us.. in fact it does and that is THE DISCOVERY of ancient Yoga Masters. No one has studies about breathing as such and as much as Indian seers have. So much so that they have come up with the whole lot of breathing patterns to help us in achieving the ultimate objective of our life : atma-saakshaatkaar, seeing the – TRUTH.

Can i do Mild Bhastrika for indigestion?

My recommendation has been that self-learners better restrict themselves to Asana only. Even learning asanas by self is not highly recommendable. There is nothing called mild-bhastrika first of all. The sole tone of this pranayama is not ‘gentle’ it ought to be vigorous, deep and even jerky to be accurate. So if you plan to do mild-bhastrika.. it would not be bhastrika at all instead a session of gently fast paced deep breathing.
