Breath of Fire Yoga

The article Breath of Fire Breathing Exercise which is chapter 1 of the Free Online Breathing Exercises (Yoga Pranayama) E-Book gives copious details on this powerful and important Kundalini Yoga pranayama.  The Breath of Fire is a key component of Kundalini Yoga Kiryas and as its been detailed heavily in that chapter already, I don’t want to rehash the information here.  Instead, I will just highlight the most important aspects of this yoga pranayama and move ahead to the video.

This king kong of pranayamas helps you detoxify your system, oxygenate your blood, magnify the benefits of the Kundalini Yoga exercise you are doing and generate terrific energy within.  If you suffer from heat related issues or high blood pressure, you should use caution when practicing Breath of Fire. 

The yoga instruction video below goes over these details and more.  Here are some quick highlights of what the video covers:

  • Detailed instructions of the beginner, intermediate and advanced versions of Breath of Fire.
  • Discussion of the most common mistakes and difficulties when doing Breath of Fire and demonstration of how NOT to do this kundalini yoga pranayama.

    Dear Key,

    Yes, it is normal to sweat during Breath of Fire. If you have high blood pressure or suffer from acid/heat related stomach issues, then you need to only do this pranayama lightly.

    You should not eat at least 2-3 hours prior to doing Breath of Fire. Specially not a big meal, a small snack is ok.

    You should sip water as required during the yoga practice, but afterwards you should drink plenty of water. This is because the kundalini yoga sets and pranayamas are designed to detoxify your system, and the toxins that are released from deep within your tissues need to be flushed out of your system after the set. So drink plenty of water after you are done with your practice.

    Am glad you enjoyed the pranayama video. Yes, Breath of Fire is very effective in raising the internal heat, which is one of the reasons why it’s a great pranayama for detoxification as well.

    Hi La Vonne,

    Glad to know you enjoyed the video. It was our first so am happy it has come across well.

    Great question too :-). The article Breath of Fire Breathing Exercise has these details, but I will summarize quickly below.

    If you are doing a set such as the Kundalini Yoga Morning Wake Up Series, it has Breath of Fire built in so you don’t need to practice extra, but if you are doing Breath of Fire as a separate exercise I suggest to start gently and build up to 1 minute per day.

    From there you can increase to 3, 5 and even 11 mins at a stretch. Remember not to overdo it and only move forward when you can do so without excessive strain. You can also take breaks in between and then continue when ready.

    Breath of Fire is great to use right before a set to get your energy going. 2 minutes is perfect for that.

    Let me know if you run across any issues.

    All Good Wishes,
