Breath of Fire is one of the most important breathing exercises used in Kundalini Yoga. It involves passive inhales and active exhales that are quick and powerful. As a form of breath control, this breathing technique is associated with stress relief. The primary goal of practicing breath of fire is to release toxins and chemicals from the cells in your body.
