Can Kapalbhati Be Done In Office?
Can kapalbhati be done in office while sitting on your seat?
It is understood that you are familiar with yoga practice and pranayama, and now you want to do kapalabhati in office hours. You can do kapalabhati or any other pranayama in office. Even if you can do pranayama for few minutes but do it in a relaxed manner, proceed slowly and do not hurry. If you are a beginner, it is better to learn it properly at first and then practice in your office.
Ensure that you sit in correct posture on a chair. The chair should be stable with a horizontal base. Sit erect keeping your spine, neck and head straight similar to sukhasana.
The room/ office should be properly ventilated. It will be better if you can find a separate room/ balcony with least disturbance/ background noises.
You can carry out pranayama in your daily wear clothing provided your clothing is not too tight.
You can do rhythmic breathing/ alom vilom before doing kapalabhati pranayama and afterwards do rhythmic breathing for few minutes to cool down your body. It will also be ideal to end your session by concentrating your mind while keeping your eyes closed. You should be able to calm your mind after each session. Even a few minutes of breathing exercises can make you feel better harmony and energy.
Whenever you can manage, you can become mindful of your breathing and breathe rhythmically sitting on your seat even while working. Just assume correct sitting posture. In this way, you can improve your awareness and benefit a lot by paying lot of attention to your breathing pattern.
You must take note of the common precautions for pranayama.
