Forceful exhalation or kapalabhati is a specific technique that allows you to control your breathing. Studies have shown that daily practice improves lung function and endurance, as well as weight loss. Randomized control trials have revealed that pranayama or breathing exercises improve general wellbeing, cognition and energy.

This breathing exercise is best practiced on an empty stomach in the morning. It can generate heat and hence is contraindicated for individuals with high or low blood pressure, heart disease, hernia, gastric ulcer, epilepsy, vertigo, migraine headaches, significant nosebleeds, detached retina, glaucoma, history of stroke, and for anyone who has undergone recent abdominal surgery.
