Wake-up and clear your head with this short, but full, pranayama yoga class. It's the perfect combination of breathing exercises, including deep abdominal breathing, kapalabhati pranayama (the skull cleanser) and meditation. The diaphragmatic breathing helps calm your nerves before moving into the breathing techniques that wake you up. If you like this class, the next step is David's Pranayama Yoga To Move Energy.

The kapalabhati breath is still difficult for me but with practise it is getting better and I can feel the benefits. Thank you David.
