Process:

Inhale and exhale through the glottis at a low, uniform rate, touching the chin to the throat.

A sweet sound should be heard like a baby snoring during respiration. After inhalation, touch the chin to the throat (jalandharbandha). Continue this practice for periods from three to thirty minutes as desired

Benefits:

Ujjayi Pranayama balances high blood pressure and the mind. It also strengthens the nervous system, removes mucus, and relieves swelling of the tonsils, coughs, and colds. It makes the voice sweet and pacifies the mind..
