Ms Thomas looks extremely tensed on this picture with such energy like she is telling us "Look what I can do".

This is an attempted description of Kriya Yoga. Isvara - sound of inhalation --- Omkara, then Rakara---sound of exhalation. The point is to be aware of your breath. Messing around with the alternating nostril techniques and points of attention without proper guidance can cause problems and confusion.
Everything connected to breath is elementally potent--simply because everything is connected to breath.
Kechari Mudhra is a precursor to any breath technique.

Is ether the heavens? Under caution it says do not do both breaths on the same day. This is confusing me. Does this mean choose to do either the Ujjayi or the Kapalabhati in the same day?
