Yoga and meditation are proven ways to find calmness. Pranayama is a powerful breathing technique that ensures healthy body and calm mind. Practicing various types of pranayama boosts resistance power and gives physical strength. Yoga is of Indian origin. The research in the field of yoga and meditation gave rise to various types of yoga like power yoga and Bikram yoga. Pranayama is a breathing exercise that helps to improve breathing pattern and combat with illnesses.


Bhastrika pranayama - procedure

Ujjayee, Shitali, Viloma, Kapalabhati, Anuloma, Bhastrika, and Bhramari are some of the popular forms of pranayama. Bhastrika pranayama is all about inhaling and exhaling completely so that your body gets maximum amount of oxygen. Follow the steps given below and learn to do Bhastrika pranayama.

  • Breathe in by inhaling forcefully through both the nostrils. Make sure that your lungs are full with air. Once you inhale fully, exhale with great force making hissing sound.

  • In Bhastrika pranayama one needs to apply force while breathing in and breathing out. You can determine how much speed to apply while inhaling and exhaling keeping in mind your heath and endurance power.

  • When you breathe in while performing Bhastrika pranayama, your abdominal should not blow up. Instead your chest area should blow up. Repeat the procedure for 5 to 10 times.
