Skull Shining Breath
Kapalabhati is a traditional internal cleansing technique (kriya), and can be used as a simple warm-up for formal pranayama
Kapalabhati (Skull Shining Breath)
kapala = skull
bhati = light (implying perception, knowledge)
Kapalabhati consists of alternating short, explosive exhales and slightly longer, passive inhales. Exhales are generated by powerful contractions of the lower belly (between the pubis and navel), which push air out of the lungs. Inhales are responses to the release of this contraction, which sucks air back into the lungs.
Focus on your lower belly. Many beginners aren’t able to isolate and contract this area. If needed, cup one hand lightly in the other and press them gently against your lower belly.
Now quickly contract (or pump your fisted hands against) your lower belly, pushing a burst of air out of your lungs. Then quickly release the contraction (or your hands), so the belly “rebounds” to suck air into your lungs. Pace yourself slowly at first. Repeat eight to 10 times at about one exhale-inhale cycle every second or two.
As you become more adept at contracting/releasing your lower belly, you can increase your pace to about two exhale-inhale cycles every second. Imagine the exhale sweeping out or “brightening” the inner lining of your skull.
Do 25 to 30 cycles at first. Gradually increase the number of cycles you do each practice to 100 or more.

Yoga bites with Gabi Johnson mindfulness she brings to the yoga mat
Learning to relax at will give you a sense of confidence in your ability to focus your mind and more familiarity with your thoughts and feelings. Additionally you become aware of having more choice in how you react and how you feel. When you learn what relaxation feels like, you are better able to recognize the contrasting feelings of tension, allowing you to more accurately identify what makes you tense. This practice can be the beginning of your ability to deal with stress more effectively, by supplementing it with other positive coping methods, such as thinking positively, finding humor, managing time, exercising, getting enough sleep and reaching out to family and friends for support.

Every single person who experiences trauma experiences it differently, from the actual event itself to the way they cope with it. Some people develop post-traumatic stress disorder and some develop symptoms that resemble it. Oftentimes, trauma can be hidden or dealt with through other coping behaviors that make up a ‘normal’ or less-than-normal lifestyle. Workaholism is one of the ways many people cope with their trauma. Throwing themselves into work, people who have experienced trauma can ignore what has happened to them. Workaholics find themselves in high-pressure and highly important work positions, placing lots of responsibility on themselves in order to stay as busy as possible. Even with families, friends, and extracurricular activities, a workaholic prioritizes their work life because they need to be involved in their work life. If they aren’t distracted and indulging in work, they might have to confront their trauma and feel their feelings. This, of course, could lead to a distraction from or an inability to perform at work.
So our you addicted to your work? Or is your trauma cause you to other type of addiction, food, alcohol, drugs or others?… Using mindfulness meditation, and the help of some guided instruction, we can learn to observe our minds in a state when there is no craving and when there is, and learning to better manage these cravings through repeated meditation practices.
Mindfulness meditation aims to help people understand what drives cravings, and to better deal with the discomfort they create. Enjoy this video, and if you can give it a try do this meditation for 30 days either on your own or with the help of this video, Thank you my friend to take this time to heal yourself. Namaste, Gabi
