Tip of the Week: Blowing in Firm Pose

Blowing in Firm Pose (Kapalbhati Breathing) is the final breathing posture after all 26 postures have been completed. Put every last bit of energy into the final breathing exercise to get maximum benefits from 90 minutes of stretching, compressing and opening the body. Kapalbhati breathing gives the body a serious cleanse, by exhaling every last bit of carbon dioxide left in the lungs. It is good for digestion, strengthens all the abdominal organs, and energizes the body. It also strengthens the abdominal wall while trimming the waist line.


  • Sit on your knees with your spine completely straight, and your shoulders relaxed.
  • Focus your gaze at yourself in the mirror.
  • Completely relax your abdomen.
  • Inhale will happen automatically, so focus on exhaling.
  • Exhale like you are blowing out a birthday candle.
  • Only your abdomen should be moving.
  • Do not bounce or move your shoulders up and down.
