Maintain External Kumbhak with ease and comfort to get the most out of this pranayama as long as the process of moving the abdomen inward and outward continues. Do not push yourself past your limits.
When Agnisar Kriya is combined with Molbandh, more benefits accrue.
Repeat the inward outward movement of the abdomen about 15 times at first. Gradually increase the number of repetitions.
Agnisar Kriya Steps
Sit in Padmasana with both hands on the knees. Maintain a straight neck and spine. The face should have a cheerful expression.
The eyes should be closed gently. There is no tension between the brows. Take a deep breath in and apply Mool Bandh.
Exit slowly and relax the abdominal muscles. Now repeatedly contract the navel root towards the spine and loosen it as long as external Kumbliak is maintained.
Manipura Chakra is the focus of attention.
Agnisar Kriya Benefits
This Pranayama is extremely beneficial in massaging all of our body’s digestive organs. It increases their functional capacity and increases gastric or digestive fire.
Obesity in the abdomen is reduced.
It relieves constipation.
It is very effective in toning up the Saman Pran, which invigorates the digestive organs and regulates the juices that come out of them.
This Kriya also strengthens Apan Pran by assisting in the proper excretion of waste matter.
People who have recently had abdominal surgery, as well as those who have heart disease or high blood pressure, should not practice Agnisar Kriya.
