Hi David! when would you do breathing exercises? before yoga/ after yoga/ it doesn't matter?

Nice variation

We did this in my class once (my first time ever doing it, and what brought me to this video because I enjoyed it so much) and the teacher had us block one nostril with our finger, do the exercise, and then block the other and repeat. So, just close the nostril by pressing the side closed gently, breathe for however many counts, and then do the other side. I like to start off with both open first, then closed, and finish open again.

Visualizing ?

I found it quite challenging to visualize energy going in and out or up through my spine as fast as I am breathing. I guess that will take time... Outside of that, I love this technique! Thank you!

Absolutely, for me too it's

Absolutely, for me too it's difficult to keep the peace and do the visualization, so I tried alone at a very slow rate first, then trying to speed up... it's not really there yet, but almost!

Great technique! I have been suffering from sinusitis for five days, and finally had one nostril clear and decided to try these. I have felt immediate movement of the congestion, and relaxation of my tired lungs. Thank you!!

Quick Question...

Is Kapalabhati the same as "The Breath of Fire"?
