DYN (Yoga and Naturopathy) Gold Medalist



Pranayama is a complete science in itself; it is the fourth limb of yoga, and is also called as the “Heart of Yoga.” The word Pranayama comes from two words, prana and ayama. Prana stands for the vital energy, which is present within each one of us; in gross terms it can be much easily understood as the breath. Ayama on the other hand stands for stretching, extending, regulating or managing. Thus pranayama can be defined as stretching, extending, regulating or directing the breath.

Pranayama can also be called as “breath-work, breath-management or breath-control.”

Pranayama is the key to Good Health and Peace of Mind. It is beneficial in the treatment of various diseases including heart problems, high blood pressure, blockages in the arteries, cancer, diabetes, obesity, asthma, skin disorders, constipation, acidity, tomours, thyroid disorders, nerve disorders, indigestion, bipolar disorders and depression.

Pranayama is a powerful healing tool, and a great stress buster. No matter how stressed you might have been, you shall feel greatly relieved after practicing pranayama.

Though there are many pranayamas specifically meant for Heart patients; however, here I shall be telling you about Sukha pranayama, Anuloma Viloma pranayama and Bhramari pranayama.

Sukha pranayama: This is the easiest of all the pranayamas. This is also called as deep abdominal breathing. Sukha pranayama is a great pranayama for people with heart problems, blockages in the arteries or high blood pressure; moreover, it is also great stress buster and a powerful mental tonic.

Technique: Sit down comfortably in a cross-legged posture, with your back straight, and chin parallel to the ground. Gently close your eyes now.

All you need to do here is to concentrate on your breath and the movement your abdomen. Breathe-in slowly and gently to the count of 5; now without any pause, breathe-out deeply to the count of 5. Keep your one hand over your abdomen so that you can feel the expansion and contraction as you inhale and exhale. As you breathe-in, your abdomen slowly expands and as you breathe-out, your abdomen contracts.

Do this pranayama for about 3 to 5 minutes; after doing a couple of rounds of this pranayama, you shall feel quite peaceful and elated.

Sukha pranayama (stage 2): Once you’re comfortable with stage 1 of Sukha pranayama; you could try stage 2. In this stage all you need to do is to change the ratio between inhalation and exhalation. Now the ratio between inhalation and exhalation should be 1:2.

Each time you’ve got to breathe-in to the count of 5; and breathe-out very slowly and deeply to the count of 10.

Do this pranayama for about 3 to 5 minutes

Anuloma Viloma pranayama: This is also called as the Alternate Nostril Breathing. Anuloma Viloma pranayama is beneficial in the treatment of various diseases including heart problems, blockages in the arteries, high blood pressure insomnia, panic disorders, and depression.

Technique: Sit in a cross-legged posture with your back straight and chin parallel to the ground; gently close your eyes now.

Make an Apana mudra with your right hand (join the tip of the middle finger, ring finger, and the thumb together; the other two fingers should be pointed outwards).

Now close your right nostril with the help of your thumb, and exhale out all your breath from the left nostril; your abdomen should sink all the way in. This is the starting position of this pranayama.

Inhale from the left nostril to the count of 4; your abdomen expands outwards. Next, close your left nostril with the help of the ring finger and middle finger, and exhale through the right nostril to the count of 8; your abdomen contracts as you exhale.

Now inhale from the right nostril to the count of 4 (your abdomen expands); close your right nostril with the thumb, and exhale through the left nostril to the count of 8 (your abdomen contracts). This completes your one round of Anuloma Viloma pranayama.

Do at least 15 to 20 rounds of Anuloma Viloma pranayama.

The most important points to be kept in mind while doing this pranayama are as follows: 1. Each time you inhale the abdomen should expand; and each time you exhale the abdomen should contract. 2. The ratio between inhalation and exhalation should always be 1:2; meaning thereby, each time you should inhale to the count of 4, and exhale to the count of 8. Keep in mind, if you don’t follow the correct ratio, you shall not be able to obtain any fruitful results.

Anuloma Viloma pranayama (stage 2): Once you’re comfortable with stage 1 of Anuloma Viloma pranayama; you could try stage 2. In this stage all you need to do is to change the ratio between inhalation and exhalation. Now the ratio between inhalation and exhalation should be 1:3.

Each time you’ve got to breathe-in to the count of 4; and breathe-out very slowly and deeply to the count of 12. Remember, each time you breathe-in, your abdomen should expand; and each time you breathe-out, your abdomen should contract.

Do this pranayama for about 3 to 5 minutes

Bhramari pranayama: As you do this pranayama, a humming sound as that of a bee is produced; that is so the reason it is called Bhramari pranayama. This is again a great pranayama for people suffering from heart problems, blockages in the arteries, high blood pressure, depression or lack of concentration.

Technique: Sit in a cross-legged posture with your back straight and chin parallel to the ground; gently close your eyes now.

Close your eyes with the help of the middle finger and the ring finger; and ears with the help of the thumb of both the hands respectively.

Now you’ve got to take a deep breath in. As you breathe-in your abdomen should expand outwards. The next thing you’ve got to do is to breathe-out very slowly and gently through your nostrils. Keep in mind, the time taken in exhalation should be at least 4 to 5 times more than what you took in inhalation. As you exhale from both the nostrils make a humming sound as that of a bee. Remember, as you breathe-out, your abdomen should slowly contract inwards.

Do at least 10 to 15 rounds of this pranayama.

Remember, if you do pranayama regularly, you will have great health and peace of mind. For more information on pranayama, you can also visit my page on facebook titled “The Miracles of Pranayama.” The address of the page is facebook.com/themiraclesofpranayama.
