If it is Tuesday… it is Pranayama

Pranayama has to be done daily.

But due to the limited time available in our 12th  Avenue yoga class our master makes it every Tuesday… nothing  in connection with the old movie of a similar name!.

Yoga Breathing Exercises for Relaxation ‘The first act of life – breathing. The last act of life – breathing. Everything else lies somewhere in the middle but seems to assume utmost importance in our life.‘ Art of Living’

“For breath is life, and if you breathe well you will live long on earth.” – #Sanskrit Proverb

Some types of pranayama yoga are as follows:

# Nadi Sodhana

# Shitali Pranayama

# Ujjayi Pranayama

# Kapalabhati Pranayama

# Digra Pranayama

# Bhastrika Pranayama

# Bahya Pranayama

# Bhramari Pranayama

# Udgit pranayama

# Anuloma & Viloma Pranayama

# Agnisar Kriya

Nadi Sodhana:   Sit down in a cross legged position, can also sit erect on a chair. Now use your thumb (right hand) to close the right side of your nose. Inhale deeply using the left nostril. Now close the left nostril and exhale using the right one. In the same way, now with the left nostril still closed, inhale using the right nostril and exhale with the left one. You can continue doing this exercise for around 7 times.

Shitali Pranayama:  Sheetal also means cool, and this technique will help you achieve the coolness like with a mint Mentos! . To perform shitali pranayama, be seated in a comfortable position. Cross your legs and take five to six deep breaths to get yourself prepared. Now open your mouth in a “o” shape and start to inhale through the mouth. When you exhale, do so with your nose. This can be repeated 7 times.It feels as if you have had those mints, the chillness

Ujjayi Pranayama: Ujjayi means the ocean and this pranayama is about mimicking the oceanic sound or the sound of the waves. To do this, be seated in a comfortable position crossing your legs. Now start to inhale and exhale deeply using your mouth. While doing this, constrict your throat as if something is choking it when you exhale and inhale the air. This will produce a sound similar to the ocean when you breath. Now close your mouth and start to breath using your nose, but maintain the same tone to your throat as you still continue to make the same sound as your breath.

Kapalabhati Pranayama: To perform the kapalabhati pranayama technique, sit in a comfortable position crossing your legs. Perform two to three deep inhales and exhales. Now inhale deeply and exhale forcefully drawing all the air out. Your belly should be drawn in, as you exhale. When you inhale, let it happen passively without you making any effort to inhale as the belly goes back to normal position. Exhale forcefully again and continue doing this for about 12 times.

Anuloma Pranayama: Just like Viloma Anuloma is about alternate nostril breathing. In this case, the inhalation and exhalation is done with one nostril blocked and the other partially open. This type of pranayama is particularly useful in claensing the nasal passages and creating calmness within.

Dirga Pranayama – Three Part Breathing. The dirga pranayam is a bit different from other types as it involves lying down on your back instead of being in a seated position. This technique involves very deep inhalation and exhalation.To perform this pranayama, lie down on your back and close your eyes. Breath normally and then slowly take deep breaths, relaxing your body. This is an advanced technique

Viloma Pranayama: Viloma Pranayama involves paused breathing at regular intervals and can be divided into two stages. The first stage is called ‘paused inhalation’ and the second stage is called ‘paused exhalation’.  Viloma Paused Inhalation: Lie down in a comfortable position and try to relax. Breath deeply, but normally. Now inhale for 2 to 3 seconds and pause. Hold your breath for two seconds and then restart inhalation. Pause inhalation again after 2 to seconds. Inhale again. Repeat this process untill the lungs feel full of air. Exhale now, slowly, till you feel empty of air. Viloma Paused Exhalation: The paused exhalation is the exact opposite of the inhalation process. In this case, you inhale deeply and normally without interruption, but exhale with regular pauses. The rest in another post.
