We build on the relaxation we have developed in the first two weeks, our nervous system is coming into more of a balance. Now we begin to work with prana more directly through the stimulating practice of kapalabhati.
The technique is becoming more important now, and a bit of experimenting and learning is required this week. The new methods are two of the most important in hatha yoga and central to growing the practice.
The real work is beginning.
Do not practice uddiyana bandha kriya and kapalabhati if you are pregnant or on your cycle.
