It is believed by many yogic gurus that Kapalbhati Pranayama using external kumbhaka and the Uddiyana Bandha will have best results. This way of praise will increase the blood and energy flow in the abdominal region.

  • Start up with practicing half-sun salutations and then full sun-salutations.These poses will warm you up, raise blood pressure, heart rate, increase your energy and blood flow.
  • Standing poses can give best results but standing too long can cause blood pressure dropping and may result in dizziness. You can intermix standing sequences with prone or supine poses.
  • You can practice Child pose or Corpse pose, and remember to take breaks between all the poses. The reclining Five-Pointed Star gives a great feel, because you are resting on your back yet the energy is flowing.
  • Shoulder Stand Pose is an ultimate pose that can be practiced. This pose gives the best blood flow next to the Inversion pose (not recommended for practitioner with hypotension). This pose should be practiced initially only before a tutor.
  • Cobra pose, Upward Dog pose, Seal pose and any other belly down poses will massage the abdomen area.
  • Bridge pose is one of its kind, it can give good relief for hypotension but, avoid it if you are not feel comfortable.
