Breath of Fire (Agni Pran) Breath of Fire is one of the initial breath technique used in the performance of Kundalini Yoga. It accompanies loads of posture, and has frequent favorable special effects. It is essential to master this breath in order that it is ended exactly and become regular.

a)Breath of Fire is brisk, rhythmic, and unbroken. It is the same on the inhale and the exhale, with no pause between them (more or less 2-3 cycles per second).

b) It is all the time experienced through the nostrils with the mouth closed, unless stated or else.

c) Breath of Fire is power-driven from the navel point and solar plexus. To exhale, the air is excluded forcefully through the nose, by pressing the navel point and solar plexus back toward the spine. This feel regular if you contract the diaphragm speedily.

d) To inhale, the upper abdominal muscles loosen up, the diaphragm extend down, and the breath seem to appear in as element of relaxation rather than through endeavor.

e)The chest stay hassle-free and somewhat lifted during the breathing cycle. When made appropriately, there should be no stiffness of hands, feet, face, or abdomen.

f) Start practicing Breath of Fire for a length of I-3 minutes. A number of people discover it simple to do Breath of Fire for a complete 10 minutes at once. Others unearth that the breath create an early vertigo or dizziness. If this happens, catch a break. A number of tingling, travelling sensations and faintness are entirely common as your body adjust to the fresh breath and fresh stimulation of the nerves. Focusing at the brow point might facilitate ease these feelings. Occasionally these symptoms are the consequence of toxin and other chemical unrestricted by the breath practice. The symptom can be comforted by intake plenty of water and shifting to a light diet.

g) Breath of Fire is neither hyperventilation, nor is it Bellows Breath. There are limitations for doing Breath of Fire as expecting and menstruating.

    • There is a lot of difference between breath of fire and kapal bhati. In kapalbhati you expel forcefully and the inhalation is passive. Whereas , in breath of fire there is an equal emphasis on inhalation and exhalation. The Breath of Fire can be practiced even if you are running , driving , laying , sitting or playing. Thank you Ishtar

      • Ok thank you for clarifying. I’m not as familiar with kundalini yoga techniques, such as breath of fire, as I would be with hatha yoga and pranayama. I was taught breath of fire in kundalini in a similar way to how I knew kapalabhati.

        Thanks again for the clarification ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Yeah many people even the Kundilini Yoga teachers has made it a bit confusing , especially when they say exhale forcefully , that leads it toward kapalbahati , its like Bhastrika the bellow breath as far as the equal emphasis of breath is concerned. But way different than Bhastrika, because in breath of fire we breathe from nostrils and the diaphragm moves automatically , need not to make it happen , intentionally. Wow amazing Hatha Yoga , in kundilini Yoga there is so much of Hatha Yoga , in particularly , the postures. You are most welcome ๐Ÿ™‚
