Pranayama for Lungs

BY: RAMNEEK WIG

Asthma, bronchitis, lung congestion and tuberculosis are now becoming very common diseases all across the globe. More and more people are getting affected by these diseases. Though there are many pranayamas which a person suffering from them could do, however, according to me Kapalabhati and Bhastrika Chest pranayama are the two best pranayamas for people suffering from asthma, bronchitis, lung congestions or tuberculosis. Here I’ll be telling you about both these pranayamas.

Kapalabhati: The word Kapalabhati comes from two words; kapala which means skull; and bhati which stands for shining. Meaning thereby as you practice “Kapalabhati” the toxins are released from the body, as a result of which, the skull shines.

Kapalabhati can be termed as “Forceful exhalations,” and is also one of the cleansing exercises of yoga. Remember, as you do this pranayama, you need to concentrate on the exhalations.

Technique: Sit down comfortably in Sukha asana (cross-legged posture) or Padma asana (lotus posture); your back should be straight and chin parallel to the ground. Gently close your eyes. Now exhale with force; as you exhale, your abdomen goes all the way in. Now perform forceful exhalations without any halt. Each time you exhale the abdomen goes in, and a sound of breath shall be produced from the nostrils. Don’t concentrate on the inhalations as they would take place on their own.

Stages in Kapalabhati: Kapalabhati can be done in 3 stages.

Stage 1: This is the first stage of Kapalabhati, and can be compared to train which has just left the platform; meaning thereby, the train is running at a very slow speed. In this stage, there should be a gap of about 1 second between two successive forceful exhalations.

Stage 2: This is the second stage of Kapalabhati, and can be compared to a train which is running at its normal speed; meaning thereby, there should be a gap of about half a second between two successive forceful exhalations.

Stage 3: This is the third stage of Kapalabhati, and could be compared to a train which is running at a very fast speed; here there would be no gap between two forceful exhalations. The exhalations would be done at a very rapid pace.

Do each stage of Kapalabhati for about 5 minutes each; remember you don’t have to do all in one go. You could do Sukha pranayama (deep abdominal breathing) in between whenever you feel tired.

The two most important points to be kept in mind as you do this pranayama are: 1. Each time you forcefully exhale, your abdomen should contract; meaning thereby, it should sink inwards. 2. The exhalations should be done with full force. There is a simple test what you can do to see whether you’re doing it correctly or not; keep a burning candle close to your nose; and as you exhale with force, the candle show blow off due to the pressure of air. If it does so, you’re doing it correctly; if it doesn’t, then you’ve got to increase the force with which you exhale.

This is a great pranayama for people suffering from Asthma, Bronchitis lung congestion or Tuberculosis.

Bhastrika Chest pranayama: This is again a great pranayama for people suffering from asthma, bronchitis, lung congestion, or tuberculosis. I’d like to point out that this is the only pranayama in which chest breathing is done. In all other pranayamas, abdominal breathing is to be done. The word “Bhastrika” stands for the bellows of a blacksmith, so as you do this pranayama a strong current of air is produced. Both inhalation and exhalation are done with force in this pranayama.

Technique: Sit down comfortably in Sukha asana or Padma asana. Gently close your eyes, and keep your hands on top of your thighs. First concentrate on your breath for a while.

Now take a deep breath in. Remember, you’ve got to breathe-in with force. As you breathe-in, your abdomen should contract all the way in, and your chest should come out; your ribcage expands as you breathe-in. Take your hands back as you breathe-in.

Now without retaining your breath, breathe-out with a lot of force and a jerk too. As you breathe-out, bring your hands back to the thighs. As you breathe-out, the abdomen also returns back to its original position.

This completes your one round of Bhastrika Chest pranayama. Do this pranayama for about 3 to 5 minutes; however, you can do deep abdominal breathing in between if you feel tired or exhausted.

Points to be kept in mind as you do this pranayama: 1. Remember, as you inhale, your abdomen should contract, and your chest should come out; as you breathe-out the abdomen returns back to its original position. 2. Inhalation is done with a lot of force; exhalation is done with a lot of force and a jerk too; a distinct noise is produced from the nostrils while you inhale and exhale.

As you do this pranayama, the pores in the lungs get cleansed; moreover, it also helps to remove the phlegm which might have been stored in the chest. This is a great pranayama for people suffering from asthma, bronchitis, lung congestion or tuberculosis. You shall see for yourself, as you do this pranayama the capacity of the lungs increases considerably.
