AUTHOR(S): Mrityunjay Patidar, Dr. Dharmendra Kumar Vishwakarma, Mahabir Shukla and Neeru Nathani
ABSTRACT:
The Kapalbhati-Shatkarma and Bhastrika-Pranayama, two traditional yogic disciplines are deeply rooted in Indian Philosophy of Yoga. In this modern era, these yogic practices have gained worldwide recognition for their potential health benefits. However, in general public, there is a myth of considering Kapalbhati as a Pranayama. This article provides a comprehensive overview of the historical and philosophical underpinnings of Kapalbhati-Shatkarma and Bhastrika-Pranayama, tracing their origins to ancient texts and scriptures. Further we discuss the scientific aspects of these practices, considering the potential challenges and precautions associated with their adoption for reaping the maximum benefits. This review article bridges the gap between ancient wisdom and contemporary science, providing valuable insights into the potential applications of these practices in promoting physical and mental well-being in today's world.
