Bhastrika is a powerful kriya that can be taught as a practice to anyone who has already learned Angamardana, Surya Kriya or Yogasanas.
- It purifies the blood, so naturally one will breathe better
- The number of breathe comes down. The need for breath will come down not only by increasing one’s lung capacity, but because the oxygen consumption is low. The system is in such a relaxed state, the metabolism has come down. So this works in 2 ways: the expansion of the lung capacity; and the relaxing of the whole system. With both of these together, the need for breath comes down.
- Helps in conditions such as:
5. Hormonal imbalance
6. Skin disease
