During these days when the air quality in San Francisco is often compromised by the smoke from the fires up north, it is especially important to take care of the respiratory system. Jala Neti, or nasal wash, is an excellent way to keep the nasal passages clean of any unhealthy particles from the air. You will likely feel a noticeable difference in the condition of that area and it can be done in times like these with no side effects.
Kapalabhati is also highly recommended for its cleansing effects, speeding up the elimination of CO2 and any excess mucous or toxins that may have accumulated in the nasal passages. This is best practiced with windows closed if the air quality is not healthy. Prana itself cannot be polluted so we can be assured that Kapalabhati will always charge the subtle energy body with life force that heals and builds immunity.
