Kapalbhati pranayama is a powerful and popular breathing exercise that brings your entire body to perfect balance and improves overall wellbeing. It improves the functions of the lungs and kidney and helps remove ama (toxins) from the body by cleaning the system from within. It also improves blood circulation and oxygen supply to the body. It stimulates abdominal organs and helps to cure constipation, acidity, sinus and diabetes.
