To do Skull Shining Breath, sit in Easy Sitting Pose and place the hands on the knees, either palms up or down. Take a deep breath in through the nose and when ready exhale all the air out of the lungs. Next, make the breaths shorter and use the diaphragm to push out the breath, making the exhale more intense than the inhale. Do this, somewhat quickly, 20 to 30 times and when ready exhale all the air out of the lungs and return to normal breathing.
